Selected cards may also provide premium coverage relating to travel equipment or ski and golf equipment.

Why it pays to have international travel insurance
When travelling around Europe, an EU insurance card is usually not enough, as it only covers essential medical care that varies from country to country. Things that are covered in the Czech Republic or Germany may not be covered in Spain or Italy. And you have to pay for anything that exceeds the scope of the covered medical care.
