EHIC Information

Keep your EHIC safe – but with you. If you are travelling to Europe, carry your European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you at all times. It gives you access to the same emergency treatment that locals would receive.

EHIC does not cover treatment in private hospitals, or costs such as mountain rescue, repatriation or lost property. You need Travel Insurance as well as your EHIC.

Despite UK government advice to keep your EHIC with your passport, MPI advises you to have it with you to avoid any problems if you need treatment. If you are skiing, keep your EHIC with your ski pass.
