European Health Insurance Card (E.H.I.C.)
It is a requirement of the insurers that each person on a Gower Music International holiday has an E.H.I.C. Card even if you are not travelling to an E.U. destination. Many countries outside the E.U. have a reciprocal agreement with the U.K. with regard to medical costs, so you maybe required to produce an E.H.I.C. Card at a doctors or at a hospital. Insurers will definitely require your E.H.I.C. number in the event that they have to pay for a claims.
