Practical Information

Medical emergencies on holiday

You are entitled to free emergency treatment in hospital or emergency rooms in cases of sudden illness, accident or worsening of chronic illness, during your holiday in Denmark.


In serious cases, you would be transported back to your own country, at your own expense, as soon as you were well enough to be moved.


It is important to know that you would not be entitled to free treatment, if it was deemed that you had travelled to Denmark exclusively to receive medical care.
