Travel Insurance Post Brexit

 

What is going to happen with travel insurance for Britons after Brexit?

Uncertainty remains as to what the deal will be for Britons visiting Europe after the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. During the period running up to the vote in 2016 the remain side warned us that the EHIC card (European Health Insurance card) might not be valid post-Brexit. This has still to be decided.

There is a genuine fear that visiting the rest of Europe (that includes favourite hotspots like Spain and France) could be similar to the rest of the World and the USA in terms of getting sick or having an accident. If you are admitted to hosptial in many places around the world then you have to show means to pay for any treatment. This is often a credit card or could even be cash. One reader reported once that on admission to a hospital in Thailand they were directed to an ATM within the emergency room!

Brexit Travel Insurance

Is the EHIC card still available and working for Brits in Europe?

As things stand (October 2018) the British version of the European health card still works and is valid throughtout Europe. There has been reports that some hospitals in Spain have refused Britons medical treatment. Public hospitals throughout Europe should always accept the EHIC card but some clearly make their own rules up.

Listed below are a selection of post-Brexit travel insurance options...
