What happens when I travel to the European Union now?

When driving your vehicle abroad now (during the Transition Period) your General Accident policy will provide you with comprehensive cover in the European Union for a total of 180 days during your policy year. No single trip can last longer than 90 days. If you exceed these limits your motor insurance provides the minimum cover required by law for each country when driving in the EU, EEA, Andorra, Serbia and Switzerland (listed below). You’re able to drive from the UK into these countries with no need to show any additional documentation to evidence that you have the required insurance. 

Countries where a Green Card isn’t required during the Transition Period:

EU Countries: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain & Sweden

EEA Countries not in the EU: Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway

Other Countries not requiring a Green Card during the Transition Period: Andorra, Serbia and Switzerland
