What to do in a Medical Emergency

    24/7 Emergency Assistance

    You can contact Emergency Assistance Facilities (EAF) in an emergency by calling +44 (0) 203 824 0707. You can also email them at

    When you call our medical assistance service in an emergency you need to have some basic information for them to hand:

    • Your telephone number, so you can be contacted in case you are cut off.
    • The name and age of the patient and as much information about the medical situation as possible.
    • The name of the hospital, the ward, the treating doctor and the telephone numbers if you have them.
    • Tell them that you have a Postcard policy, policy number, the date you bought it and your booked travel dates.
    • The patient’s UK GP details, name, address and phone number (in case more information on current medical conditions and treatment is needed).

    When you contact EAF you’ll speak to a member of the operations team, they will ask the basics of your case, and allocate you a case number. If necessary, they’ll confirm that you’re insured and provide the hospital or clinic with appropriate billing instructions.

    More information can be found in your policy wording.
