Important information about driving abroad
Taking your vehicle abroad
Good news! All our policies cover use in the EU (and several other European countries) as standard. All drivers on the policy will have the same level of cover as in the UK for any trip, for up to 90 days per trip. See your policy documents for full terms and conditions.
As the UK is part of the Green Card Free Circulation Area (GCFCA), you don’t need to carry a green card when travelling in Europe but you will need to provide proof of insurance if requested.
