    I have always carried an European Accident Statement in my insurance pack when travelling in Europe. This is a blue covered form and in the event of an accident, all details can be recorded on the inside for vehicle A and vehicle B. Due to the fact that I had all my details entered on my side of the Accident Statement (address, vehicle , policy number etc) it is now invalid as I have changed my van and policy. I rang Safeguard and Swinton with regards this today and they do not have this document anymore and as I feel it is an excellent form, wondered if anyone out there knew where I could lay my hands on a few. Hopefully I will never need it but like a good Boy Scout one has to "Be prepared"!:Eeek:

    Yes they were good, but I've not seen one for years.

    Possibility the EU revised it and now it weights 3 tonnes and comes complete with two lawyers.

    All trucks working Europe have them.If you know of a local European truck driver,ask him for one and copy a few off.Failing that any European haulage firms near you will find you one if asked nicely.

    I'm with Safeguard and they sent me this form when they issued my renewal documents last October.

    If you don't get any joy for finding a source drop me a pm and i will send you one next week when i get back to work, our insurance company sent us a load enclosed with accident packs, fortunatley we have not needed to use all the packs and i can take one apart for the form.

    Thanks for that. It seems that this form is unheard of in Insurance circles. Its such asimple idea I don't know why they don't all use them. In the army if a driver has an accident he fills in an FMT3 which is a very similayr form. No hassle no fuss and as both sign the document it cuts out errors or "selectivre memory loss" in the event of a claim. Off into town next wekk to see if any complanies still have them!:thumb:

    as promised i triedto contact the printers of european accident statement forms. i had no success. i have contacted Camptons who i insure with and they say they will send out forms with greencards if requested. they are sending me a new one. i can only say ask your insurer or change to camptons .i know lots of fellow 5ers use them. they may be good for other vehicles as well give them a go. cheers alan.
