EIHC

An EIHC is a European International Health Card. And may be used in any EEA Country and Switzerland. It replaces the old E111.

Private travel insurance may be a better option as it does only cover basic treatment, even though your EIHC will cover most services that you would get under the NHS, some ambulance services in Europe are privately operated and you would be expected to pay for ambulance travel in those circumstances.

An EIHC is valid in the following countries.

Austria
Belgium
Cyprus (but not Northern Cyprus)
Czech Republic
Denmark
Estonia
Finland
France
Germany
Greece
Hungary
Iceland
Ireland
Italy
Latvia
Liechtenstein
Lithuania
Luxembourg
Malta Netherlands
Norway
Poland
Portugal
Slovakia
Slovenia
Spain
Sweden
Switzerland

It covers you for free or reduced medical treatment whilst you are a tourist in any of the above countries.

You can apply online at http://www.dh.gov.uk/

Travelling to any other country, you will need private health insurance.
