If you are simply traveling in those countries for a few days?

I've had numerous holidays in Greece and Turkey and never had to show proof of insurance. Is this something new in the past 12 months, maybe due to financial crisis?

I have read on some sites that it is and some that say it isn't.

I have been to Macedonia about 6 times and have never been asked to show proof of insurance. Of course, I had insurance for every trip. However, my last trip to Macedonia was last summer, so perhaps things have changed?

Well, I sometimes delete my posts because I've had some harassment on here in the past. This one shouldn't have been, I just got so busy I didn't think about it. I restored them as best I could.

Appreciate the comment! Glad someone seems to like them.

If you are a citizen of an EU member sate, get an EHIC for travel to Bulgaria. It will cover basic medical treatment. For Macedonia you need private cover. It would not hurt to get some for BG too.

Thanks for the reply.

Yes, it's valuable!

Edit: I mean your experience!
