    Previously I have always just toured in the UK and had a main holiday outside theEU. Turns out the E111 I had previously has run out. I believe it has been replaced with the EHIC. Some people have told me you have yp pay for it some say it is free. I know I will get the correct steer here. Might get a bit of abuse as well. I will also have travel insurance. Still looking at breakdown cover if anyone has a strong reccomendation. Thanks

    The EHIC card is free, do not use any web site that wants to make a charge.

    Most Travel policies today have a blanket exclusion of 'anything that would be covered by your EHIC whether you've bothered to get one or not and if you haven't bothered we still ain't gonna pay it' - which is perfectly OK with me!

    Scran it is free easily obtained on the Internet., and a good back up to travel insurance, would defiantly get it. Same as ACSI and travellers cheques, all worth taking the trouble to get.

    They are free, and are valid for 5 years. They give you basically the same treatment and cost as you would get as a national of the country you are visiting. (ie not necessarily the same as you would get here) Sometimes you may have to pay and reclaim via the EHIC authorities in UK.

    As I understand it they will not cover repatriation costs. So they are not a full substitute for insurance.

    But many insurance companies expect you to have one for european travel.
