Protecting you and your family on Holiday
With the holiday season in full swing, is your travel insurance in place in case of those unexpected health claims?
Many Britons are travelling abroad with little to no cover and in the event of visiting a doctor are faced with extortionate costs. Although applying for an EHIC (European Health Insurance Card) may seem like an easy option and leaves many of us thinking we are covered, this simply isn’t the case. Recently the European Commission have taken legal action against Spain, as some hospitals have refused treatment of British holidaymakers carrying an EHIC card.
In the unfortunate event that you need to seek medical treatment abroad, surely it makes sense to have the right cover is in place to cover all the unexpected costs. When you have invested so much time and money into making sure you have a trip of a lifetime, don’t let a spell of illness spoil this. We can’t predict what will happen In the future but we can certainly protect against it.
