EHIC Information
« on: March 06, 2013, 12:38:28 PM »
If you are thinking about booking your holiday to Greece, don't forget your EHIC.

The NHS link to EHIC  http://goo.gl/PfWW2  gives all the information you will need.

If you already have an EHIC it is valid for 5 years.

Check that your EHIC is still valid before you travel. Renewing your card is free and you can do it online if none of your personal details have changed.
If you need to amend your personal details then you can only renew your card if you have your PIN, which is provided on your EHIC card. Otherwise, you should call the automated EHIC application service on 0300 3301350. If you are unsure whether you have provided all information about changes, please contact the enquiry line on 0845 605 0707.
You can renew an EHIC up to six months before the expiry date. However, any time left on the card will not be added to your new card.
Renew your EHIC and go abroad knowing you are more prepared.

As a postscript to Trisa's post,

Make sure that if you order your EHIC online that you don't go to one of the sites that charge you 10. IT IS FREE.
