With the holiday period in full swing, Lib Dem Euro MP Phil Bennion is urging holidaymakers not to forget their European Health Insurance Cards (EHIC) when going away to Europe this summer.
The EHIC card is completely free and valid for five years and entitles the holder to the same treatment as a citizen of a participating country.
Lib Dem MEP and European Transport Spokesperson Phil Bennion has welcomed proposals from the European Commission to reform the EU's rules on package holidays and bring them into line with the modern era.
The new rules include stricter controls on ticket and accommodation price surcharges, reduced red tape for travel agents and improved cancellation rights for customers who book package holidays online.
New EU limits to cut mobile phone roaming fees have come into force this week, marking another victory in a Lib Dem campaign to stop 'bill shocks' for travellers.
The new rules cut the cost of data roaming by over a third and further reduce the cost of making calls and text messages when visiting another EU country.
