Using EHIC in Belgium: What is Covered

Using EHIC in Belgium: What is Covered

Each country has a different system in terms of health care, but in the EU, as long as you have a Safe European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), you are entitled to reciprocal medical treatment. While this is reassuring for regular travelers, it should be reiterated that reciprocal deals do not mean that you will receive the same treatment as you do with the NHS in the UK. Pay to do your research before you travel and always have one yearly travel or annual travel insurance.
Belgium is an EU country and a popular destination for weekend breaks. It is also in a place that people often drive through on their way to other destinations. With valid EHIC, health care can be accessed at low speed or even free depending on how urgent the treatment is. However there are certain things you should know if you need health care in Belgium.

Using EHIC in Belgium: What is Covered

What is EHIC Cover?

The majority of health professionals in Belgium work on a private and public basis, so when you access care, it is vital that you make sure you are seen by a state-funded general practitioner. Only one trip or an annual travel insurance policy that covers private health care. This is very important in case you ask your hotel or vacation representative to call the doctor for you so you make sure they call the general person. Costs incurred when using a personal doctor can not be replaced by EHIC.

If you need health care in Belgium, you may be asked to pay a fee directly to the doctor. You can then reclaim 75% of the cost while you are still in Belgium. You will need receipts to claim the money back as well as the official form, which can be obtained at the doctor or dentist you see. Of course, if you have annual travel insurance or even a single travel policy, you should be able to refund the entire cost.

What about hospitalization? Using EHIC in Belgium: What is Covered

Again, going to a hospital is not free in Belgium. There is a fixed daily charge of about fifteen euros with the cost of drugs on top of that. If you show your EHIC when you confess that you only need to pay the patient fee and avoid paying a down payment that can be refunded.

And Recipe … Using EHIC in Belgium: What is Covered

The recipes must be paid when purchased at the pharmacy but with EHIC you can reclaim 75% when you were in Belgium. With one trip or an annual travel insurance policy, you may be able to reclaim your full costs. Calling 090010500 takes you to the 24-hour pharmacy information line, telling you the location closest to the open one.

While EHIC is a useful part of the documentation, if you want peace of mind with respect to health care while traveling to Belgium, or indeed any other country, invest in insurance. Annual travel insurance is the best option if you plan on doing more than one trip a year.

Beyond Skiing: The Natural and Cultural Wonders of Chamonix

 

Beyond Skiing: The Natural and Cultural Wonders of Chamonix

Attention, ski enthusiasts! Chamonix is renowned for its fantastic skiing – and for good reason! However, this means that its other wonderful attractions are frequently overlooked. You’ve just stepped off your shuttle from Geneva to Chamonix… now how about something a little different? For something distinctly non-touristy yet incredibly worthwhile, why not wander off the beaten skiing track and try some of these alternative activities?
Natural Highlights

 

Visit the Mer de Glace

At 200m deep, this is France’s largest glacier. It flows 7km down Mont Blanc’s northern side, moving at a rate of up to 1cm an hour or 90m per year. The ‘Sea of Ice’ is stunning to behold, and after the 430 steps that lead into the grotto, you’ll see some of the best crystal specimens in the Mont Blanc massif. It is reachable by the Train du Montenvers, a picturesque cog railway that will bring you to an altitude of 1913m, from where you can access the Grotte de Glace by cable car. The entry price also gains you access to the Glacorium, which examines the birth, life and future of glaciers – so hold on to your ticket!

Take the Cable Car to the Aiguille du Midi

Rising to 3842m at its peak, the Aiguille du Midi is perhaps Chamonix’s most noteworthy geographical feature. If the altitude doesn’t put you off, you’ll be rewarded with 360-degree panoramic views of the French, Italian and Swiss Alps, which will literally take your breath away.

You can take the cable car Téléphérique de l’Aiguille du Midi all year round, and the journey itself is quite spectacular. Either hop out halfway at Plan de l’Aiguille to begin hiking or paragliding, or continue to the top for views in every direction, thanks to the glass floor of the ‘Step into the Void’ attraction.

Be aware that even in summer, it will be only be about -10°C at the summit, while temperatures can plummet as low as -25°C in winter.

Cultural Highlights

Musée des Cristaux

This museum is home to a dazzling display of crystals from the Mont Blanc massif, and there are also rocks and minerals on display here. The Espace Alpinisme section focuses on the art and science of mountaineering. It has interesting interactive displays and mesmerising videos and photos of ascents that must be seen to be believed.

Musée Alpin

This collection focuses on the region’s rich history of Alpine adventure, including highlights such as the first ascent of Mont Blanc by a woman, and the cliff-hanging exploits of Jacques Balmat on his quest for crystals.

How to Get There

There are plenty of budget airlines that fly from the UK to Geneva. To get from Geneva to Chamonix, why not book a quick and easy airport transfer? Shuttle Direct offers both private and group shuttles from Geneva to Chamonix, guaranteeing a convenient and pleasant start to your trip.

It’s A Women’s World: The ‘Ladies’ Château’ of the Loire Valley

It’s A Women’s World: The ‘Ladies’ Château’ of the Loire Valley

A French barge cruise on one of European Waterways luxurious, fully-crewed barge hotels is an experience to remember. We firmly believe that there is no better way to explore the Continent than from the water.
The Nymphea hosts our French barge cruise in the Loire Valley, passing under the remarkable five-arch bridge of the Château de Chenonceau. Built in a pale grey stone, the bridge’s symmetrical curves are juxtaposed against the castle’s pointed turrets and enchant our guests time and time again

 

It’s not only architecture and engineering buffs who fall in love on the banks of the River Cher. The unique history of the Château – spanning from the early sixteenth century to the modern day – is well worth discovering.

Hidden Histories

Cruising beneath the repeated arches of the gallery aboard our French barge cruise, our guests often wonder who created them.

Today we are looking at some of the famous inhabitants of the ‘Ladies’ Château’ – the women who shaped both this beautiful building and France.

The Mistress: Diane de Poitiers

Intellectual, royal-favourite Diane de Poitiers lived in sixteenth-century France; no decorative wallflower, Diane was intelligent and politically savvy. She became so well-liked by King Henry II that she often wrote and signed official correspondence on his behalf using the portmanteau ‘HenriDiane’.

Diane was also the King’s mistress for over two decades – perhaps the most powerful woman in the country. As Henry’s mistress she was given the Château de Chenonceau. Diane not only lovingly developed the gardens, she commissioned the stunning arched bridge spanning the river – one of the most iconic architectural features of the Loire Valley.

The Wife: Catherine de’Medici

Catherine de’Medici was the wife of Henry II and, understandably, was jealous Diane’s influential position in Henry’s court. After Henry’s death Catherine forced Diane de Poitiers, the legal owner of the property, to leave and triumphantly took possession herself. Determined to make the Château her own, Catherine installed a grand gallery running across Diane’s bridge – the strong-willed widow had successfully displaced the trusted mistress.

Under Catherine’s management, the castle became the site for many extravagant parties and, rumour has it, the first ever firework display in France lit up the sky over one of her night time revels.

The Saloniste: Louise Dupin

During the French Enlightenment, eighteenth-century French women were at the centre of literary, artistic and cultural advancements. Louise Dupin, who lived in the Château de Chenonceau with her husband, formed a literary salon there which drew in leaders of the Enlightenment movement such as Voltaire, Condillac, Buffon and Bernard le Bovier de Fontenelle.

An intelligent woman herself, Louise saved the building during the widespread destruction of property prompted by the Revolution. Louise pointed out that the arched bridge provided a rare crossing place on the river essential for the movement of people and trade. As a result of her quick thinking and bravery we can enjoy the splendour of the Château de Chenonceau in the twenty-first century.

Welcome to Fall

Welcome to Fall

I have just spent a week in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. The foliage was just starting to turn into a wonderful koliascope of colors. Unseasonably warm then while there, we are now getting back to the usual temperatures of October. The gardens are wilting down, the skins on the tomatoes are thicker, canning and freezing are in full operation. Corn stalks are turning brown in the fields, and as the leaves die back, acres of bright orange pumpkins are evident against the backdrop of browning leaves. Sumacs along the edge of the swamps are bright red and are probably the earliest of the changing season.
The tree leaves, although still changing color here, are starting to drop. They go in stages. Most noticeable are the maples as they seem to go overnight. The oaks, that are most abundant in this area, go more slowly. Many do not lose all of their leaves over the fall but wait for spring and new growth. All I really know is that by Thanksgiving I will be knee deep in leaves and thanking God for leaf blowers.

 

Right now the houses on the street are slowly starting to sport scarecrows, orange lights, pumpkins, and corn stalks. Soon the neighborhood children will be buying and making costumes for trick-or-treating. I’m stocking up on candy bars as there will be about one hundred little ones knocking at my door. Some not so little ones, too. I chuckle at the less than one-year-olds that come in their parents’ arms, knowing full well that these babe-in-arms will get none of the bounties.

It is a wonderful time of year. With a chill in the air, it is a great time for walking and hiking. Despite a year with a heavy infestation of gypsy moths, the oak trees have put out an abundance of acorns. That means that with this bounty the squirrels will have been just as busy reproducing large litters. That may mean a problem for next year. If the season does not provide for the newcomers, then the population of squirrels will dwindle again. They come and go from year to year.

It’s the time of year that I start looking towards my own Halloween decorating. I don’t do a lot, but do enjoy carving pumpkins. Choosing from a collection of patterns that were collected over the years, I pick them based on available time and the effort required to do the work. There is a ghost that hangs from a tree to welcome the kids with a cackle. Using white paper bags and black silhouettes, luminaria lines the walk up to the front door. The advent of flickering battery operated lights take away the danger of flames in the pumpkins and luminaria. Other smaller lights and decorations are brought out of storage. The costume for the dog involves a bandana and motorcycle hat. My own costume comes from a collection in that same storage area and varies from year to year. With a motorcycle dog, then a motorcycle Mama may end up being the choice.

Not a big fan of roasted pumpkin seeds, when the guts are pulled from the pumpkins, I put the collection in a large shallow roasting pan. This pan is placed on a storage box on the deck just outside of the living room window. From my recliner, I am privy to a private show of the squirrels coming up to feed on them. It keeps them out of the bird feeders. The biggest male always stakes his claim on the pan of seeds, chasing away all others. Somehow that just doesn’t seem fair.

One of the Best Ways to Create an Exceptional Cash Infusion for Your Business

“Business is slow!”

“The economy is horrible.”

“The political structure creates fear of spending.”

Which of the “stories” you say to yourself?

Have you noticed that some people do their best while others keep telling themselves how bad the business is? It’s based on story. Stories make us go forward or stop us in our path.

For those who convince themselves that their business is sluggish, they probably will not do anything to generate income. Those who find opportunities, regardless of outward appearances, under any circumstances, are likely to take massive action to generate cash.

Fastest Track to Cash

One of the fastest ways to earn money is to pick up the phone as part of your follow-up strategy.

Follow-up by phone seems to be a very lost art. Recently, I passed a shelf in my office that is a “collector” shelf. You know that. You get something by mail and plan to get there … someday. One of the Best Ways to Create an Exceptional Cash Infusion for Your Business

Recently, I found a package that someone sent some time ago. When I receive it, I experience many things and never feel the urgency to open it.

The package contains examples of oils, creams, and other items that may cost enough to be sent to me.

The woman who sent her was never followed up. Not once.

Well, maybe he followed up with an email, but if he did, I never saw him.

Waste of money. In his mind, he might have thought he was being productive by sending me his package. He would have been much more productive if he followed up with picking up the phone to make sure I got their package. Chances are, I will try to sample some time ago. Who knows, I might have turned into a customer.

Email is not the best choice

Yesterday, I got an email from someone who asked me what to do if someone has not responded to his email for more than two months.

I asked, “Did you pick up the phone and call them? You never know … they might not get your email.”

He did not think to pick up the phone. He guessed the man was blowing him.

You can not just rely on email as a communication tool. There are too many things that can happen as your email is flagged as spam.

There is no magic bullet

Why are people so hesitant to pick up the phone? It’s like a ton of phones and they’ll hurt themselves.

The phone is your friend The phone is making money. Mobile phones are a great tool to use in your daily business practices.

You may be surprised at how many businesses are lost because you rely on a very unreliable source of communication.

Recently, I hosted an event in Portland, Oregon. 40 businessmen attended Passion for Thriving.

I took one day after the re-assembly, arranged my call list and started calling. Over the next few days, I contacted at least 90% of those present.

Not just registering private clients as a result, I sell information products to some participants and show, for example, that picking up the phone is a very good thing.

If you feel the business is slow, get out of your own way and pick up the phone.

Set the destination minimum number of calls you will make each day. The point is this; Your business success is not based on some secret or magical formula. It’s based on consistently doing what works.

Phone calls work Simple like that.
