|25. What will happen if my child is ill while they are away?|
Your child will be taken by a member of our local team to either the hospital, a medical centre, the dentist or the opticians, as appropriate.
YOUR CHILD MUST TRAVEL WITH THE APPROPRIATE MEDICAL INSURANCE FOR THE COUNTRY VISITED.
It is necessary for members of the European Union to have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) to receive free treatment in England. EVEN IF YOUR CHILD TRAVELS WITH THE EHIC, HE/SHE MUST BE COVERED BY A TRAVEL INSURANCE THAT WILL INCLUDE RAPATRIATION TO THE COUNTRY OF ORIGIN AND OTHER SERIOUS MEDICAL COSTS THAT MAY NOT BE COVERED BY THE EHIC.
In some cases, medical fees may apply and an advance may be required, in which case you will be informed.
