It is important to remember that the EHIC does not fully cover the cost of your medical treatment and will not entitle you to free or low cost private treatment. It will also not cover the cost of urgent repatriation to DK, so it is always wise to have a good Travel insurance policy in place.
It is important to be covered by insurance when you take a trip, because sudden injury or illness can otherwise be both expensive and inconvenient. If you have to travel in the area covered by the blue European Health Insurance Card, then you are covered on an equal footing with the citizens of the country in which you are travelling. The Danish yellow social security card cannot be used as travel health insurance outside of Denmark, the Faeroe Islands and Greenland.
Covers the entire household

Receive coverage up to DKK 10,373
If you rent a car abroad, we cover the deductible up to DKK 10,373.
Travelling with a friend
If you travel abroad with a friend, he/she will also be covered by your Travel insurance
Our Travel insurance covers exactly where the EU Blue Card does not suffice. The European Health Insurance card (EHIC) does not cover:
- If you need to be repatriated to Denmark due to illness, or if you are injured
- If your holiday is ruined because of illness/injury
- If your baggage is delayed
- When you are travelling outside Europe
You can choose whether the Travel insurance should cover only in Europe or worldwide. The insurance also covers for a period of one year, so it’s not necessary to take out insurance for just one trip. It covers all of the trips you take in a given year.
