Insurance FAQs

I have a Global Health Insurance card (GHIC). Do I need travel insurance?

Since 1 January 2021 the GHIC is accepted in all EU countries as well as Switzerland. It's not currently accepted in Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein. If you don’t have one, you can now apply for a Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). The GHIC entitles you to reduced cost or free state healthcare in the countries you visit.

However, not all medical costs are covered by these health agreements, so your travel insurance will cover you for all other medical expenses, including bringing you home if you're too unwell to complete your trip.
