EHIC-European Health Insurance Card


Valued Member
North of Watford Gap
Three weeks ago I attended the Annual Meeting of all the Branch Secretaries of our Regimental Association (I was standing in for ours), and the above topic came up.
It seems that this card does not cover you for a lot in the event that you find yourself ill, have an accident or whatever if there is surgery involved. As the mass majority of those at the meeting, like me, are in advanced years, it was stressed that those that had booked to go one one of the trips being organised as part of WWI Commemorations should ensure they have adequate insurance before leaving the UK.
I just thought that this titbit of information may be of use, although most globe-trotters are well versed in this subject, so apologies if this is nothing new.


ps - part of my stock of 'useless information'!
