European medical card scam

Reading Time: 1 minute

You probably already know that you can get the European medical card (the one that gives you free medical care abroad) through the NHS.

We’ve got information about it in this article on travel insurance. It’s called the European health insurance card (EHIC) and it enables you to get free medical care in EU countries.

Now, though, there are scammers who are conning people into paying up to £20 for one! Honestly, they will stop at nothing to make a fast, dodgy buck.

The Daily Mail broke the story about sites that look very much like the real NHS one and actually charge people for something that should be free.

So don’t be conned. The proper website to get your card is at www.ehic.org.uk. That’s the one that works and is free. Go for that one. Tell your friends. Don’t let the con-artists get your money.
