Don't forget to take your EHIC on holiday this summer

Off on holiday soon?

Don't forget about your EHIC - and don't be caught out by sites that charge you to apply.

Your EHIC lets you get state healthcare at a reduced cost or sometimes for free. It will cover you for treatment that is needed to allow you to continue your stay until your planned return. It also covers you for treatment of pre-existing medical conditions and for routine maternity care, as long as you're not  going abroad to give birth.
