We urge all customers to purchase comprehensive travel insurance. Insurance is not available through Nordic Visitor. Scandinavian citizens must show their passport in the event of a medical emergency while citizens of EEA countries must have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or else the patient will be charged in full.
