Motorhome insurance FAQs

How might Brexit affect my European travel plans?

If you’re planning a holiday to Europe in your motorhome or campervan then you need to carry a Green Card.

Update: On June 30th, 2021 the European Commission agreed that UK drivers will no longer need to carry a Green Card when taking their vehicles into most EU countries. The rules haven’t come into force just yet. Until the changes have been implemented and a date is confirmed, we will continue to send Green Cards to motorhome insurance policyholders who have fully comprehensive European cover.

The Green Card needs to be printed out on white (or green) plain A4 paper in black ink and you must carry it with you when driving in Europe.

You will also need to take your driving licence, log book, motorhome insurance documents and you will need a GB sticker for your motorhome. You might need an International Driving Permit for some EU countries.

If you’re towing a trailer you’ll also need a separate Green Card for this.

There’s more information about Green Cards and other EU travel rules here.
