  • Did you know that the EHIC (the fancy plastic replacement for the old E-111) expires after a short period of time? No? Perhaps you ought to check the date on that card in your wallet (or the bottom of the drawer with the passports – wherever you keep it). You might, as I did, get an unpleasant surprise. In any case, you can renew your own card, that of your partner/spouse and those of any dependent children using one easy form at this website.

  1. And did you know the same happens with your plastic driving licence? They run out after 10 years. Still, they kindly only charge you £17.00 to issue another ten year one.

  2. Gordon Jackson – what a pain! The paper one was good until you retire, so why can’t a plastic one last that long? And the EHIC is free, so why charge for the licence? Yeah, a fee to replace it if you’ve been silly and lost it would be fair, but not just to keep a bunch of computer operators in a job.
