Driving abroad

Driving in the European Union (EU)

The rules for passports, driving, EHIC cards, pet travel and more may change from 1 January 2021. Act now so you can travel as planned.

All UK vehicle insurance provides the minimum third party cover to drive in 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

In non-EU countries, 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.
