If you plan on driving your own vehicle through Europe or driving in a particular European country, you may want to consider dedicated Green Card cover. This motor insurance certificate is proof that a motorist has adequate cover for the country they are travelling in. Sterling’s prices start from £350.
Depending on the policy, standard car insurance can include European cover for a short period of time. For example, with Sterling, our motoring policies include European cover for up to 30 days.
A Green Card is documented proof a British motorist has adequate insurance cover for the country they are driving in. It is currently optional for driving through the EU, EEA, Andorra, Serbia and Switzerland – but is likely to become compulsory if the UK leaves the EU with a No Deal Brexit.
If you are driving in Europe, you may want to consider dedicated Green Card cover for your own peace of mind. It is definitely required if you will be on the road for longer than your standard car insurance will cover you for.
Sterling has access to various insurance providers to find you the best deal. Your vehicle must be UK-registered and we can arrange travel documents before your departure.
Sterling compares prices from a panel of insurance companies so you get the very best deal. Short term cover of one, two or three months as well as longer term annual policies are available. Cover is for drivers aged 21 years or over and cover for newly qualified drivers is possible.
You can motor around Europe, explore a route to Morocco, or adventure over to Russia. There’s no end of possibilities for your next adventure, so take a look at other countries where our Green Card Insurance can cover you.
Our legal cover is a standard feature in our car insurance policies. So if you are ever involved in an accident that isn’t your fault, it can help you recover any out of pocket legal expenses afterwards.
Sterling can arrange a European Green Card to drive in any UK-registered vehicle, whether it’s a car, van, motor home or campervan. Phone one of our experts who will find a quote that works for you and your needs.
If you happen to break down in Europe during your travels, our European breakdown cover can help you get back on the road. Opt for our European Plus Breakdown cover and get cover in many eastern bloc countries too, including Russia (west of the Urals). We also offer keycare, and windscreen as optional extras with our policies.
