European Health Card

The European Health Card is valid throughout the European Economic Area and Switzerland.  The EEA consists of EU members plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway. 

The European Health Insurance Card enables you to access reduced-cost, sometimes free, state provided health care should you need it when you are abroad.  It also covers you for pre-existing conditions. 

You can find full details on the NHS website 

 

Photocard Driving Licence Paper Counterpart

The AA recommends that you retain the Paper Counterpart of your driving licence if you are travel abroad.  Just because the use of the paper counterpart has been abolished in the UK it does mean that you won't need it in the EU.

Better to be safe than sorry!

 

Oh and don't forget your PASSPORT!!!
