Do I need a Green Card?

As you may already know the exit date for Brexit has been extended, this means that things have changed with Green Cards, the below information should have everything that you need to know. If you have any questions or queries please call us on 0800 0304 206.

If you are travelling to the EU and will return prior to the exit date which has now been delayed to 31st October 2019, you do not need a Green Card and do not need to contact us for a Green Card you just need to take your certificate of Motor Insurance which has the European wording on the reverse.

If you are planning to be driving your vehicle in the EU on or after the new exit date above, please contact us 21 days before you plan to travel so we can issue you with a Green Card if you require one.

In the event there is no deal on the 31st October 2019, a Green Card will be required for all vehicles which travel in the EU after the exit date to prove that you have the required insurance, regardless of the level of motor cover provided on your policy. This is true even if you have a foreign use extension on your motor policy.

In the event that we leave before the 31st October 2019 it will mean that we have come to an agreement and therefore leaving with a Deal which will mean that Green Cards will not be required at all for travel within the EU.

Apparently NFU has a green card printed on the rear of their insurance certificate
How thoroughly modern is that

As do all spanish policies. Unfortunately it means nothing apparently. Just that it is available. you apply to the agent/company/broker for an A4 greencard which is then supplied stamped ,signed & dated by the agent usually for the complete year. Once I found out I just get a yearly one now at renewal.

Well I have belt and braces. I am currently in Spain and have a real green card from comfort, also both international driving permits Not likely to need any of them. Thought the October date was only if no agreement before then, or has everyone given up hope of an agreement

I can’t imagine how local councils could arrange European elections in a month

No it’s white
But official and legit according to NFU
I think we all have insurance cettificates like .
Legal from the point of view that you insurance covers you and legal if you are from an EU country but if you are from a country ouside the EU it must be Green. Also copies and ectronic versions not acceptable must be original.
Hence the rush to issuse green cards if we had left the EU on 29th March.
We still don't known if we willl keed then after October.

NFU sent me the proper piece of green paper, stamped dated and signed, when I asked. Somebody needs a kick. :gum:
