Please remember that there is no NHS in Guernsey, however with effect from 1 January 2023 there is now a reciprocal healthcare agreement with the UK which will enable UK visitors to access emergency healthcare upon presentation of ID, see gov.gg/rha for further information. In addition, since Guernsey is not part of the EU, the E111 or EHIC cards which entitle carriers to reduced cost or free medical care are not valid here. Hence it is important that you take out medical insurance for the period of your intended stay.
Please ensure all persons included on the booking are aware of these terms and conditions, thank you.
