At home in the UK, our health is covered by our wonderful NHS, but when you travel over to Europe, you will need additional health cover in the form of a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC renewal) to avoid unnecessary and expensive bills from European medical facilities if you or your family need any medical attention while you are away.
The EHIC Renewal was previously known as the E111 card renewal, and it allows you to receive whatever treatment you need while you are on holiday, either free or at a much reduced cost in most countries in Europe. In fact, at the current time of writing, the EHIC card renewal covers you in 31 countries.
The EHIC renewal is available free from the NHS, but applying through us can speed things up considerably.
You’ll need to fill in the short and simple EHIC Card Renewal Application on our site to get the ball rolling. After that, one of our experienced team members will do a thorough check of your EHIC application renewal to ensure that all the information we need is filled in and accurate, then they’ll speed your EHIC renewal through for you so you know your application will be accepted and sent your way as quickly as possible.
We also offer a convenient reminder service for you to renew your E111 card when it expires, so you never have to worry about cover when you plan your breaks abroad.
Your EHIC card renewal will last for five years, and you can renew from six months before your current card expires. Renewal of your European Health Card or European Health Insurance Card Renewal is usually quick, but by planning ahead and using our renewal reminder service, you can apply for the whole family’s cards via our linked system, then forget about it and look forward to your holiday!
Your EHIC Renewal is valid in these countries:

Why it is important to renew your EHIC
Your EHIC renewal application is extremely important if you are travelling abroad. You can no longer have an E111 card but the European Health Card covers you and your family for emergency medical treatment when you travel in Europe. You are also covered for any long term medical conditions or chronic illnesses if you have any flare-ups when you are away, and if you book, you can also get kidney dialysis and oxygen if needed. If you’re pregnant and travelling, and your baby comes early and is delivered while you are away, then any costs for the delivery will be covered.
If your European Health Insurance Card is stolen or you lose it, you are covered from the date you applied, and you are also covered if your card doesn’t arrive in time, so you can still get the treatment you need and won’t face any large, scary bills that might otherwise ruin your trip.
You can also have a Provisional EHIC Renewal Replacement Certificate if you need one and it can be sent to your treatment centre, giving you the same free or low cost treatment benefits as your EU health cover.
You will still need to get travel insurance for full cover.
