Brexit: Your Cover

Driving in Europe after Brexit

Our guide for what to do in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

How will Brexit affect my European road trip?

You have enough to think about when driving abroad without worrying about Brexit too.

If there's a no-deal Brexit, after 31 October 2019 you’ll still be able to drive in countries in the EU, but you’ll need a Green Card to do so.

A Green Card is an international certificate of insurance which gives drivers the minimum level of insurance needed in the country they are visiting.

Not sure if Brexit will affect your road trip to Europe? Here’s a guide to your cover in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

Travelling and returning before 31 October 2019

You don’t currently need a Green Card if you’re travelling and returning before 31 October 2019 and driving in:

  • Countries in the European Union (EU)
  • Countries in the European Economic Area (EEA)
  • Switzerland
  • Andorra
  • Serbia

Travelling before 31 October 2019 but returning after

If you’re driving in the above countries before 31 October 2019 but returning after this date, you’ll need a Green Card to cover you in case there’s a no-deal Brexit. Apply for one via our online form.

We'll then provide 90 days of European cover as shown on your Certificate of Motor Insurance.

Please contact us if:

  • You need to drive abroad for longer than 90 days
  • You’re already driving your vehicle in one of the countries listed above, won’t be returning before 31 October and don’t have a Green Card

Travelling on or after 31 October 2019

If you’re driving in the above countries on or after 31 October 2019, you’ll need a Green Card. Apply for one via our online form.

We’ll provide 90 days of European cover as shown on your Certificate of Motor Insurance.

If you need to drive abroad for longer than 90 days you should contact us.

Please apply for your Green Card at least 14 days before leaving the country.

Your Questions Answered

The situation could change, so we’ll keep our customers updated. If you have any questions please contact us or have a look at our Frequently Asked Questions.

Should I request a Green Card in case there's a no-deal Brexit?

We can give you a Green Card if there's a no-deal Brexit and you'll be driving your vehicle after 31 October 2019 in the following:

  • Countries in the European Union (EU)
  • Countries in the European Economic Area (EEA)
  • Switzerland
  • Andorra
  • Serbia

How much does a Green Card cost?

Green Cards are free for Gladiator Van Insurance customers.

Can all van insurance policy holders request a Green Card?

All Gladiator Van Insurance customers with a full driving licence can apply for a Green Card from us.

Does the Green Card cover all drivers on the motor insurance policy?

All Gladiator Van Insurance customers with a full driving licence can apply for a Green Card from us.

Does the Green Card cover all drivers on the motor insurance policy?

All named drivers on the policy with a full driving licence will be covered in Europe.

What happens if I drive in the European countries listed above without a Green Card after a no-deal Brexit? Will this invalidate my insurance?

Green Cards are required by the local authorities in each country to prove you have valid insurance or you may not be covered in the event of an accident. You could be stopped from entering at the border or your vehicle could be seized.

How long will it take for me to receive my Green Card?

Please request your Green Card at least 14 days before you travel.

Once we've received your request, we'll send the Green Card to your postal address in 3-5 business days.

What if I'm towing something, like a trailer or caravan?

You'll need to contact us so we can tell you if you need a separate Green Card.
