Make sure you’re ready for any of the possible outcomes with our Brexit result matrix below:
What is a Green Card and why would I ever need one?
Great question! The Green Card is evidence that you have the minimum level of cover required to travel through the EEA (European Economic Area). Please refer to your policy wording to see what cover applies to you when you’re driving in the EEA. Green Cards will be required for all UK motorists to drive in the EEA, Andorra, Serbia and Switzerland as proof of insurance if we arrive at a ‘no-deal’ Brexit. If you require a Green Card, please contact your broker who may charge a nominal administration fee. Travelling without a Green Card may be breaking the law and could cause severe delays at borders.
The same requirements will apply to motorists from the countries listed above travelling to the UK.
Do I need to request a Green Card right now?
You’ll need a Green Card in advance if any of the following instances apply to you:
In these instances, please contact your insurance broker or the customer services number written on your policy. Your broker will ensure a Green Card is issued as a precautionary measure.
My policy is due to renew before the 29 March 2019 – will you automatically send me a Green Card?
As the outcome of Brexit is not yet confirmed we won’t be automatically sending out Green Cards. However upon request, your broker can issue a Green Card.
Will digital copies of Green Cards be accepted?
