Austria Tour Holidays
The land of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Johann Strauss and Gustav Klimt, Austria entrances visitors with its extraordinary cultural heritage, its elegant cities and its magnificent Alpine landscapes. Cruise along the ‘Blue Danube’, immortalized in Strauss’s famous waltz and discover the nation’s stately capital, Vienna, with its majestic Hapsburg palaces and monuments and its treasure-filled museums and galleries. The unspoilt, picture-postcard scenery of the Tyrol and the ‘Sound of Music’ country is a delight to explore, while the baroque splendour of Salzburg is an unmissable highlight of this beautiful country.View all holidays to Austria

EHIC/GHIC - Following the UK’s exit from the EU, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) is being replaced by the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC). UK-issued EHICs are still valid and offer the same cover as GHICs in the EU. Once your EHIC has expired, you’ll be able to replace it with a GHIC and you can apply online. You should beware of unofficial websites that may charge if you apply through them. An EHIC or GHIC is free of charge.
Either card lets you get medically necessary state healthcare in Europe at a reduced cost or sometimes free of charge, however it isn’t a replacement for travel insurance, you should have both before you travel.
