According to the association, the European card covers costs related directly to healthcare, but fails to cover additional expenses such as transport, travel expenses for relatives, or baggage loss. It also fails to provide 24-hour phone assistance to clients.

FBAMSZ pointed out that it is highly recommended to have “tailor-made” additional insurance on the basis of both the given destination and planned program.
