Determine the date your EHIC expires. Understand that you are able to renew your card six months before the date of its expiration. Look at the date on the front of your actual card, and make sure it is six months or less before your card is due to be renewed.
Gather the required information you will need to complete your renewal form in advance. Make sure you have all the data you will need such as the complete names, dates of birth, and Personal ID Numbers (PINs) of each individual for whom you are renewing a card. PINs are located next to the date of birth on the original card.
Decide how you want to renew your card -- via telephone, by going to a post office location, or on the Internet (see References). If you desire to renew via phone call 0845 606 2030.
