Tips on Health Cover When Heading to Portugal

Travel & Tourism
The Faro airport to Albufeira transfer is just the first stage in what hopefully will prove to be a fantastic and trouble-free holiday. Yet unfortunately, health issues don’t only arise at home – so make sure you’re covered for health care in Portugal if necessary.

The basic principles

If you are a citizen of a European Union country and are visiting Albufeira, you will be entitled to what is called reciprocal health care. What that basically equates to is that you will be allowed access to local health services on the same basis as local people, meaning that in many cases you will be able to have emergency or serious medical treatment without needing to pay huge sums for it.

However, if you do turn up at a hospital in Portugal needing treatment, things may run a lot more smoothly if you have evidence of your entitlement in the form of a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). These are available in the United Kingdom free of charge through the NHS website, and it is worth noting that you do not need to pay any intermediate agencies or organisations any fees in order to secure it for you.

A few minor complications

Remember that the EHIC gives you the same medical services as local Portuguese residents would be entitled to. That is not the same thing as saying that you will receive the same service and the same approach as you would through the NHS in the UK.

Under the Portuguese system, certain medical services may be payable or part payable, which would be delivered free of charge in the United Kingdom. As the position here can change over time, you may need to check the exact specifics prior to your departure. Remember though, you are not being victimised, as local people would have to pay for the same services where appropriate.

More serious complications

Probably the very last thing on your mind, as you step off the Faro airport to Albufeira transfer, is the likelihood of being taken seriously ill or being injured in an accident. That’s probably exactly as it should be, as you are after all on holiday in this marvellous resort!

Yet sadly things can and do go wrong in these areas and it’s worth keeping in mind that the EHIC entitlement will not cover the costs of things such as emergency accommodation for your family, if they need to stay on locally to care for you. It also won’t cover your medical repatriation to the United Kingdom through something such as an air ambulance, should that be necessary.

Depending upon the circumstances, the costs involved in some of the above types of medical situations might easily run into tens of thousands of pounds. Therefore, it might be a sensible idea, even if you have an EHIC, to consider various options for travel or holiday insurance at the same time as you are organising your transfer online from Faro Airport to Albufeira.

So, eager as you may be to get off the shuttle from Faro Airport to Albufeira and get busy with the business of enjoying yourself, before you set off, find just a few minutes to think about the admittedly rather less exciting subject of health cover and insurance.
