Brits urged to get EHICs and travel insurance

Those taking holidays in Spain and other destinations should apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) as well as taking out a travel insurance policy, it has been claimed.

According to insurance specialist Insurefor.com, many Brits simply forget to apply for EHICs or to renew them.

EHICs provide Britons with basic emergency medical cover when travelling within the European Economic Area.

Antony Martin, the company's managing director, also said is a mistake for holidaymakers to believe their travel insurance covers them for everything while they are away.

"Travel insurance provides a certain level of healthcare protection for travellers and is perfect for major instances where hospitalisation is required, for example," he commented.

However, most policies have an excess and holidaymakers requiring an appointment at the doctors would probably need to pay if they do not have an EHIC.

Government figures show that three million of the cards expired last month.
