Im trying to renew our E111 cards which is nowcalled EHIC and there is more than one website offering the service. on two that Ihave been on they are charging different prices for processing the cards. I need them by the end of the month; DS1 is going away with the school.

What website should I use.


I renewed ours by phone for no charge? What are you paying for?


You should apply for a new one before the expiry date - you can apply up to six months before your old card expires. The easiest way to apply is online or by phone on

Thanks everybody.

They are already out of date, so Iwill do it online now with the link mollymole has put up.

I thorght it was a bit strange, but wondered if they had introduced a processing fee.

Just renewed though that link.
There was still a processing fee of £8.95.

Too late for you now, but the link from this page should provide free EHIC cards:

I linked you to the government site. Dot gov dot uk.
Theres no charge.

I applied for new ones less than 2 weeks ago and they arrived within approximately one week. No charge

This is the official site that direct gov and NHS link to I got mine from there, free of charge as they should be. Warning though, the telephone system is one of the most annoying things I've ever encountered! I do hope you haven't been scammed and manage to get them in time.

Anyone who pays for these EHIC cards is giving money to people who want to charge you for a free service. Only use the official website as Anna mentions in order not to get ripped off.
