Hmmm renouncing uk citizenship? I dont get that. I spent half of my life in oz and am gonna marry an aussie but id NEVER EVER EVER give up my uk citizenship. Each to their own I guess. They would never know ure not resident in the UK for the e111 i'd just put down a relies address. That doesnt cover you for the actual trip though and if things go wrong on the way. So as others I'd take it out purely for this element. After all it is a holiday in the way that a holiday to any other country would be...
It's too early a.m. - I read that as "PORN website"!

You should always take out travel insurance with medical cover, if only to cover you while you're flying. If you get sick in transit, or on the plane and the plane detours to the nearest airport in a country that doesn't have reciprocal health rights, or if someone else brings a nasty bug onto the plane, you all get quarantined together in transit and you end up catching it, that could be your life savings gone.
