Check your European Health Insurance Card before heading away this summer

It is estimated that up to six million Brits who travel abroad this year could be at risk of facing huge medical bills if they dont renew theirEuropean Health Insurance Card before heading away this summer.
The card's must be renewed every five years and the card's are needed with standard holiday insurance in order to recieve the same state-provided medical treatment that local residents get in their own countrys. Please note that in most EU countries, standard medical cover is not free of charge like our NHS.

All Eurozone travellers should have both an EHIC card and travel insurance.

It is possible to apply for a free card from www.ehic.org.uk or by calling 0845 606 2030.
