Documents for driving abroad
  • Take your Certificate of Motor Insurance if you travel in the EU. This provides details of your insurance cover that you'll need to provide if you have an accident.

The multi-lingual leaflet explains how your Certificate of Motor Insurance applies in the countries listed above. You'll find this helpful while driving abroad.

You can use your Certificate of Motor Insurance and our leaflet instead of a Green Card.

The Green Card (or International Motor Insurance Card) is an internationally recognised document that shows that you have the minimum insurance cover needed by law in the country you are visiting. You don't need a Green Card for driving in the countries listed above.


Travelling further afield

You'll need to tell us if you're taking your car to a country that isn't listed above. You may need to prove that you have car insurance, not just at the border, but for example after an accident. You can get a Green Card if your insurer will cover you for that country, but you may have to pay a fee for this.

Please call us on 0344 412 4684.


Longer trips and business travel abroad

Are you planning to take your car to Europe for more than 90 days? You should let us know in advance, so that we can tell you how much it will cost to get extra insurance cover. You should also let us know if you're planning to use your car for business travel abroad.

Please call us on 0344 412 4684.


Breakdown cover

For peace of mind, AA European Breakdown Cover has a 24-hour English-speaking phone helpline for when you're driving abroad.
