The EHIC Card

Whatever your reasons for going abroad, you may be entitled to medical care at reduced cost or sometimes for free. Your entitlement will vary based on whether you're going to a European Economic Area country (EEA) or elsewhere in the world.

You should apply for a free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), which offers you access to reduced-cost medical treatment in countries within the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland.
