For those who have relied on EHIC cover (or bought EHIC topup insurance) to make foreign holidays affordable, travel in 2021 may become considerably more expensive: it’s worth checking on costs before going too far with planning. And it’s certainly worth shopping around – the Financial Conduct Authority are concerned that many consumers lose out by failing to compare quotes from different insurers.
