Europe travel: Can I get an EHIC replacement? How to apply for a new GHIC

TravelEurope travel: Can I get an EHIC replacement? How to apply for a new GHIC


What is a GHIC?

According to Gov.uk: “The UK Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) lets you get state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes for free.

“If you have a UK European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) it will be valid until the expiry date on the card.

“Once it expires, you’ll need to apply for a GHIC to replace it.”

Much like the EHIC, a GHIC does not replace travel insurance, so holidaymakers are still advised to take out a comprehensive policy ahead of their travels.
