Today we talk about essential news for those who want to travel to the EU in their car.
The post-Brexit requirement for drivers from the UK to obtain a 'green card' from their insurance company before visiting Europe is set to be dropped after the European Commission agreed to waive the requirement.
When it will start?
The new rule will affect 20 days after the ruling is published in the EU’s official journal.
British visitors taking their cars when going on holidays or family visits to France, Germany, Spain etc., will no longer be required to obtain extra paperwork from their car insurance companies ahead of their journey.
WIll you remember?
Readers of a certain age will remember the ‘green cards’ – issued by the insurance company before a trip abroad. The internationally recognised card shows local law enforcement that the car is fully insured.
Due to Brexit
This requirement returned after the end of the Brexit transition period. However, in practice, not all insurance companies issued the cards, and some told customers that they were unnecessary.
Most EU countries continue to allow British tourists and visitors to drive on UK licences (although British residents in some countries have to swap their licence for a local one). An International Driver’s Permit is not necessary.
