do i need an EHIC/GHIC card for Austria?

yes, it’s a good idea to take your Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC) or European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) with you during your trip to Austria, if you have one – this is your reminder to check it is in date! the health cards provide British citizens with access to discounted (or even free) medical assistance in a medical emergency.

however, the GHIC or EHIC should not be used as a substitute for travel insurance as the health cards will not cover you for things like medical repatriation (getting you back home in the event of an injury or medical emergency), emergency medical expenses, cancellation, delay and personal baggage. If we agree to pay for a medical expense which has been reduced by an equivalent to the policy excess because you have used a GHIC, we will not deduct the excess under the Medical Expenses section of cover.
