I am planning on driving my car abroad

Your comprehensive private car insurance policy gives you cover to drive abroad for up to 90 days within the EU. Please read your policy document for full details of your cover.

The Association of British Insurers (ABI) and Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB) advise that drivers should be prepared to have a Green Card with them when driving in the EU after midnight on the 31st October 2019.  Provided you carry a physical copy of your Green Card with you, you will be allowed to drive in EU countries.

If you are planning to drive within the EU and your trip will be finished before the 31st October 2019, then nothing will change and you don’t have to do anything.

If you plan to drive within the EU after the 31st October 2019, please contact us on 03300 240 123 at least a month before you travel so we can issue you with a Green Card.

We will not charge a fee to issue you with a Green Card.

You can find detailed guidance and FAQs from the ABI here.  For further information, please call us on 03300 240 123 or email us at
