Any thoughts as things stand at present .travelling Europe April/may time
Insurance companies are issuing cards - just in case.
Contacted mine via broker no help at all .don't seem to have made a decision on it .maki g it hard to plan the trip .don't want to risk not having one
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 !
Wait till Friday
I've just managed to get some sense from insurance and they are starting to issue from tomorrow.
If Jeremy gets in I'll be full timing
Comfort don't seem to have any mention of it? Do think it will be needed though.
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”
Just applied for mine as its free, also got IDPs just in case. BUSBY.
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
I'm travelling out on the 29th .... spoke to Comfort yesterday and they have sent mine in the post first class no charge.
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.
God forbid. a character like that in charge of our security and as for Diane Abbott what a joke ! I notice she’s not put up much for interviews I wonder why ?
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
Funny how they hid her at the last general election and blamed it on her diabetes!!!!!!!
Yeah give me Jacob Reet Smug anyday................he really knows how to look after us all post Brexit
At least he can count!
