Insurance Green Card
« on: May 18, 2016, 12:06:12 PM »
Hi All,

Do UK insurance companies issue green cards for use in Europe? If not has anyone had any problems from local police or border crossings etc as a result of only having the normal certificate of insurance and supporting documents?

Sorry, not clear on UK rules. For Swedish registered card green card is only needed for few countries and recommended for a few more. But not even recommended (and definitely not needed) for most of the major countries like Spain, Germany, France, Portugal etc.

Probably easiest to just give your insurance company a call though or even check their website, mine has all the info with lists of countries etc available.
