If you wish to drive your vehicle in the EU you will now have to carry what is termed a green card – a document that guarantees you have the minimum motor insurance cover legally required for driving in the countries you are visiting and driving through.
This is a physical document that will detail the driver(s) covered to drive, the vehicle(s) covered and the countries to which your motor vehicle cover is extended whilst within the EU. You must take this document along with your Certificate(s) of Motor Insurance when travelling with your vehicle(s) outside of the UK. Please rest assured that there is no change to the level of cover your policy affords you whilst driving in the EU.
To arrange cover for driving your vehicle(s) outside of the UK you must contact us with the full details of your trip well in advance. Green cards are physical documents which need to be posted to you, so it's imperative that you allow enough time for this to be arranged. The UK government recommends informing your insurer 6 weeks before your planned trip if possible.
