Do I need a green card to drive in Europe?
A guide to driving in the EU zone if there’s a No Deal Brexit
It is no longer a legal requirement in many countries to have a green card, but it will give you peace of mind and make things much easier if you need to make a claim or exchange details with another driver or the police.
Make sure that your green card has at least 15 days left on it before you travel to Europe. Even if you’re going on a day trip, you’ll need at least 15 days’ cover.
Those travelling to the Republic of Ireland will not need to carry a green card with them, but you’ll need to bring other required documents, such as a V5C logbook. Like any car journey, it’s also important to ensure that you’ve got a valid driving licence and you’re insured to drive in the EU.
