fu*k travel insurance. who needs it anyway? You will need an E111 form however as that will cover you for medical stuff in the E.U. U can pick one up for free in the post office.

(if i really want travel insurace i think tesco do it fairly cheap.)

Well if you don't have travel insurance and you become ill abroad you will have to pay several £1000's for treatment. It also covers offer stuff like accidents or theft.

No, that just means you're entiled to treatment for free while you're there. When you arive back in the UK you will get your medical bill from the hospital.

WTF?! £1000? Where the hell are you going- Afghanistan?

Generally I find that the supermarkets are pretty cheap for travel insurance. I've got an annual multitrip policy with Marks and Spencer (I think they sell either Axa or Norwich Union policies) for around £100ish which is pretty good.

gotta agree with people, £1k is a shite load for travel insurance (unless you're planning to go to afghanistan with a stopover in downtown baghdad and follow this with a trip to liberia....). Personally I just get insurance and don't bother with an E111 form.

Try sta travel if you're a student.

Not really true; you'll get totally free emergency cover. You'll have to pay for ongoing support or repatriation however. Travel insurance is only really useful for when the airline loses your baggage, or if you get mugged or robbed.
