Do you live in an EU/EEA country or Switzerland and are you on holiday to an EU/EEA country or Switzerland? Then you are entitled to necessary care in accordance with the laws and regulations that apply there. You will need a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). You can request the EHIC online from us.
We recommend that you always take out travel insurance. The EHIC usually does not offer 100 % coverage. If you go on holiday to other countries, you are reliant on supplementary or travel insurance.
Other treaty countries
If you do not live in an EU/EEA country or in Switzerland, you will always need supplementary or travel insurance during your holidays. You are not entitled to coverage of health care outside your country of residence. You will also not receive an EHIC from the CAK.
