EHIC cards in Spain

ParisBack again.  Did you see the Sunday Papers?  Well apparently there is some problem with EHIC cards in Spain.  We phoned our Son immediately because I know he relies on his EHIC card to cover him when he goes to his in-laws in Valladolid.  I told him to call Claudia at Avanti (0800 888 6195) to get some proper travel insurance so now he is fully covered with his wife and their daughter (our Granddaughter Lucia).  That’s a relief.

Anyway, while we were reading the Mail on Sunday we saw a lovely deal on a weekend break to Paris.  It’s my birthday soon and we hadn’t been to Paris for years.  I hinted to Ted by leaving the paper open on the relevant page next to his breakfast tray.  Low and behold he booked it as a surprise.  He has asked his Brother and Sister in Law to come along too.  Thanks Angela at Avanti for arranging insurance for them.  They don’t travel that much so a Single trip Policy was their best option and it only cost £36.  Better safe than sorry we always say.   I think we can manage with hand luggage only as we will only be away for three days.  Oooh la la! I must go to my favourite perfume shop by the Champs Elysees to stock up.

Au revoir!
