Regardless of where in Europe you travel, to get the same access to medical care as nationals of the country you visit, you do need The European Health Insurance Card. You never know when you might need to call a doctor or visit the hospital. As you can see in the video above, it can happen when you least expect it.
So, no matter the length and type of your trip, make sure you have obtained this card. Find more information at The European Health Insurance Card.
Note: although this post was aimed to people from the European Union’s 27 member states plus Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, I’m pretty sure you can get a good laugh from watching the video irrespective of your location.
