Since 2015 and in that time I have learnt an awful lot from this site
Have a look on your certificate of insurance.
Mine has a statement in different languages to state that the certificate replaces the need for agreen card in Europe.
Having said that I had an email to the effect that they will now issue hard copy green cards !

Can the Green Card be sent by Email. We are with the C&CC and rang them about a week ago. They said they were not doing anything until after the 29th

When I pointed out that we would be in Europe by then the lady replied “your not going to be in the deepest Amazon, are you”

No. I believe it has to be an original document actually printed on green paper. They must post them out.

Spoke to Comfort a couple of weeks ago,said they do not issue them until 21days before you leave. And ,there would be a£20 administration fee A few days later received an email from them updating their position which implies that there would not be a charge. Will find out later this month when will be in 21day window

mine isn't a green card, its a letter from the insurance company (Adrian flux) that confirms insurance cover is extended to France and Spain (as I asked) between specific dates up to Easter this year

I also collected my International Driving Permit from the post office for £5.50 just for France as we have now decided not to go into Spain

What is a Green Card?
It's not actually a card at all.

The Green Card is an international certificate of insurance printed on green paper.

It provides visiting motorists the minimum compulsory insurance cover required by the law of the country being visited.

It not only allows the movement of vehicles across international borders with proof of existing insurance but also ensure that victims of accidents involving foreign registered vehicles are not disadvantaged.

Contacted Advance as we go for 3 months on 31st of March. Initial advice was "wait and see".

Called back a few days later to tell me I needed one and the insurance company was charging£45.00 for them.

Another one exploiting Brexit uncertainty and there's no choice
