The simple answer to this question is yes!
Even if the UK doesn’t leave the EU (unlikely now) then you should still carry travel insurance along with the EHIC card. The EHIC is not enough on it’s own and would not cover any treatment that’s need in a private hospital.
Some Spanish public hospitals even turned away Britons a which under EU law they are not suppose to do.
What about the EHIC card? Will it still be available after March 2019?
The truth is that no one knows, not even the UK government or the European union. If they do know then they are not letting on.
Whatever happens with Brexit one thing will remain. Travel insurance will still be necessary for any trips into Europe so don’t leave home without it!
