Citizens of the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland are entitled to free emergency medical treatment, providing they have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Non-EU nationals are strongly advised to have travel medical insurance before visiting Greece.

Respective consulates and Athens-based embassies can help visitors find hospitals and doctors in Greece, should the need arise. Note that most Greek doctors speak English. If you plan to do any extreme sports (scuba diving, rock climbing, rafting, etc.) whilst on holiday, you should also look into extra insurance cover. Medical treatment in Greece is relatively expensive in private clinics. Most hotels have a doctor on call.
