Here's everything you need to know...
Now Britain has left the EU, you might have some questions about how any changes could affect your insurance.
If you’re planning on travelling abroad, there may be some changes you need to be aware of. Please see the relevant sections below depending on your method of travel.
CARAVAN AND TRAILER INSURANCE
What about your caravan and trailer insurance policy?
If you plan on towing abroad (including to the Republic of Ireland), you may still need a Green Card for your caravan or trailer (but not your car). If this is the case, you should contact your car insurer.
If your car insurance is with LV=, please follow the instructions under the motor insurance section above.
Your breakdown cover won't change...
Your breakdown cover won’t change.
If you have our European Assist cover, you’re protected against breakdown when driving in Europe.
Take your car insurance policy documents and your vehicle log book (V5C) with you if you travel to the EU. Having your Certificate of Insurance and other documents, including any lease documents if you lease your car may help if you experience any problems while driving abroad.
Finally, let's talk about your pet insurance policy
Pet passports will now no longer be valid for trips either to Northern Ireland or the EU. Instead, you'll need an animal health certificate
New rules to take your pet abroad
The new rules for dogs, cats and ferrets are –
- They must be microchipped
- They must be vaccinated against rabies, although your pet must be at least 12 weeks before they can be vaccinated
- A period of 21 days must pass after the primary vaccination before you can travel
- A dog must be treated for tapeworm between 24 and 120 hours before arriving if you are travelling to a tapeworm free country
- Visit you vet within 10 days of your EU trip for an animal health certificate
