Thanks to Jims post the driving licence issue is now a lot clearer, but what about insurance ?
If things go the way expected, I would think you will need a green card to cover you
Up until now most insurance companies have issued them FOC, but whats the betting that will change !

The general (Brexiteer) belief is that currently the cost of providing everyone with cover will not need to be met.
Therefore the overall cost of insurance is sure to fall. :rolleyes:

Only those requiring international travel will have to pay for their own cover, which is much more fair. (y)

To clarify, I am talking vehicle insurance.. and the standard green card certificate you have needed to go outside the EU ( such as Bosnia and Herzegovinia )

The wording at the end of your insurance certificate is in place of a green card. I doubt anywhere will really bother with it all.

If any EU country starts getting stroppy about green cards I'll just take my holiday money somewhere else.

Hence the green card requirement, as it is for all countries outside the EU.
The green card is an add on which covers basic third party requirements under international law

I have been in touch with our MH insurer as we will be away into April they advised that I needed a green card and wanted to know where was I going and when would I be coming back! I had to state all the countries (I should have said all EU countries but didn't!)

I felt like I was going back in time! He wasn't happy when I told him I hadn't a clue when I was coming back somethime in April so we agreed end of April. No doubt we will be getting told we can only bring back 4 bottles of wine next. Jeez (end of mini rant!)

I checked just begore I left

My insurance company safeguard said I have European cover not European union cover so nothing will change . They asked if I planned to visit morroco or turkey ...I said I didn't know so they have me a free green card just in case which is valid until my insurance renewal in late August.
I told them I didn't plan to be home in August so I expected to renew whilst still abroad same as last year and again they don't expect any reason why it woukd change.

That'll do me.

I don't have the idp thingies either as it's a load of bollox and I left before it came in to force.

As papajohn said ...why worry be happy
Sod all I can do anyway but fed up of the whole shambles

Well that`s our 14th year & still loving it.

The general belief of the remainer is that the world is going to end on the 29th March so I wouldn't worry about a green card. :whistle:

It seems to depend on the insurance compant. We had to cancel our trip but had we gone Comfort were going to issue us with a Green card free of charge in case a no deal Brexit happened whilst we were away just to be on the safe side. This was far safer for my sanity than worrying about who had or hadn't read the latest rules at the roadside in the event of an accident!

Recently we hired a car from Malaga airport and the company wanted to charge us about £251 insurance for 10 days hire.
Get the insurance before you go if you can.

I spoke to my insurer Caravanguard today, they have advised me to take a green card as I am leaving mid March for 2 months, they charged me £15.00 administration fee for the card. probally won't need it but better safe than sorry.

The only thing that is certain is that March 29 will be followed by March 30, probably.

We phoned Safeguard. They issued us with a green card to last for the life of the policy. It arrived in the post the following day (y).
