How to get a free EHIC card for Euro travel – the website explains that the EHIC is a good start when arranging protection abroad, but there are lots of things it does not cover e.g:

  • Costs incurred if EHIC treatment isn’t free
  • Private hospital treatment (prevalent in some European countries)
  • Cancellations and delays
  • Repatriation,
  • Baggage loss or theft
  • Various others
