Document I have taken out private insurance, should I still apply for a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC)?

We would recommend that you still apply for an EHIC. Travel insurance alone may not be enough to cover all medical care and some policies are not valid without an EHIC. The EHIC can save money when the cost of treatment is below the excess on the insurance policy.
