Which EU countries can I drive in?

With a temporary car, van, or motorbike insurance policy, you are covered to drive in all EU member states, as well as the following countries:

Gibraltar
Iceland
Liechtenstein
Monaco
Norway
San Marino
Switzerland
Andorra

Make sure you know which countries you’ll be driving in before you get your insurance, then you can check what the minimum level of cover is and whether the policy will cover you.

Can I travel to the EU for work?

This depends on the class of use you have selected.

If you’re driving a car, you’ll be covered for Social, Domestic & Pleasure use including commuting to and from a place of work. If you’re driving a van, you can select ‘carriage of your own goods in connection with your business. It’s worth checking the Policy Wording or Insurance Product Information Document (IPID) once your quote has been generated. You’ll find this at the bottom of the Insurers Declaration before you proceed to payment.

Can I leave the car in Europe?

Leaving the vehicle in Europe when the Policy expires would be classified as Exporting. As we do not provide the ability to Export vehicles, the insured vehicle must return to the UK before the temporary policy expires.

Do I need a green card?

No, as of the 3rd of August, drivers from the UK will no longer be required to obtain a Green Card before driving in the EU. All the required insurance documentation will be emailed to you directly after you buy so you can download and print it out yourself and take it with you on your travels.
