3. Driving abroad

Driving in the European Union (EU)

All UK vehicle insurance provides the minimum third party cover to drive in other EU countries.

Check with your insurer if your policy has extra cover for things like theft or damage to your car abroad.

Driving in other countries

Outside the EU, a ‘green card’ proves that your insurance covers the minimum cover in the country you’re driving in. Ask your insurance company if they can issue you with one.
