European Health Insurance Card Renewal
When Can I do My EHIC Renewal?
There are many reasons why you will want to make sure you hold a valid EHIC card before travelling. As an EHIC card holder if you need medical care while you are abroad in a qualifying EHIC country, then you will have the same rights as local residents and have the necessary coverage during your trip so that you don’t face huge medical bills which would most certainly ruin your holiday.
Being an EHIC card holder is very simple to do. All you need to do is complete the short application form on our site and you can have your EHIC card usually in under 1 week from the day you applied. Though it can take up to ten days so make sure you leave enough time before applying.

What is the EHIC card useful for?
Being an EHIC card holder entitles you to many benefits. First and foremost if you get ill whilst on holiday and need access to a local doctors surgery then you can do so using your EHIC and to avoid any huge bills you may have received if you did not hold an EHIC card.
The EHIC card also covers you for things like injuries during your holiday. So if you fall, slip and break a bone for example, then you can get the medical treatments you need without incurring huge costs.
As an EHIC cardholder you basically have the same rights as local residents of that country.
You won’t be covered with your EHIC if you are travelling to a country simply with the intention of getting treatment there.
Having both Travel Insurance and EHIC cards is important when you are due to travel within countries that accept the EHIC. This will give you the most coverage possible and the Travel Insurance will cover you for the things the EHIC does not.
