Brexit & Green Cards

From January 2021 the UK is no longer part of the Free Circulation Area and whilst the UK Government and the EU are likely to reach an agreement on this, no decision is expected before March. As a result you will now need to apply for a Green Card prior to any journey. Insurers are asking that any green card requests are made about a month before you are likely to travel. If you are towing a trailer or caravan it may be that you need a separate green card for each. Whilst the Green Card was originally printed on Green Paper this is no longer a requirement but you must carry hard copies of the document.
