Having a medical emergency or accident during your vacation can cause a very unpleasant and stressful situation considering the fact that you are on a foreign territory with very limited and in some cases nonexistent knowledge of the local health care system and the local health care providers.
If you are an EU citizen who is planning to visit Greece, it is wise to apply for the European Health Insurance Card which is issued free of charge by your home country and is valid in all European Economic Area countries, as well as Switzerland.
If you fall ill and you are in need for any kind of emergency care, this card makes it possible for you to have all the costs of the received treatment reimbursed by your home country. It’s also advisable to sign a travel insurance before your trip to Greece. In this way, your travel insurance along with your EHIC card, offers you a complete coverage in case of a medical emergency while traveling.
Outside the EU
If you are a traveler from a country outside the EU and you have a medical emergency situation during your vacation in Greece, your private or family medical insurance, travel insurance or extended home insurance will cover all the expenses for the provided medical care.
