Q663: I am taking my car abroad. Do I need extra insurance?

You need to inform your insurance company that you will be driving abroad. There may be an extra premium involved and they will possibly issue you with a Green card. A Green card is a document that proves that the minimum legal requirement for insurance cover for countries which accept the document has been met. Even if your insurance company don't issue you with a Green card, it might be worth requesting one as it is a document that is well recognised by police all over Europe.

See the link in related information for more advice about Green cards from the Motor Insurers' Bureau.

Insurance certificates issued in Community Member States (EU) provide third party cover throughout all other member states.
