We always advise our customers to take out adequate travel insurance which includes winter sports coverage.
European Health Insurance cards, that are not expired, are still valid within the EU. However, we strongly advise you to take out travel insurance with sufficient healthcare cover.
It is still possible to drive in Europe however you need to make sure you obtain and carry a Green Card for your UK car insurance to be valid in the EU.
