You need to carry an insurance green card when driving in the EU, EEA and all other countries that recognise green cards.
These can take between a week and a month to process, and your insurer will usually provide it free. Check with your provider how long it will take and if there’s a cost.
Green cards typically last for up to 90 days. If you’re driving on a separate trip in a country that recognises green cards, you’ll need to get another one from your insurer.
If you’re driving a vehicle that’s registered and insured in your host country, such as a local rental car, you won’t need a green card.
You might also need to put a GB sticker on your vehicle, even if it already has a Euro plate. An EU plate is a number plate displaying both the EU flag and a GB sign).
You won’t need a GB sticker to drive outside the UK if you swap a Euro plate with a number plate that only has a GB sign and not the EU flag.
