BREXIT: Being prepared
The UK is scheduled to leave the EU on Friday 12th April, although a last-minute delay hasn’t been ruled out and things may change if the UK Government manages to strike an exit deal.
What should I be prepared for in case we leave on Friday 12th April without an exit deal?
Most importantly your insurance will continue as normal, there are no indications that BREXIT will impact your cover whilst driving in the UK. If you are travelling on or after Friday 12th April within an EU country, for either work or pleasure, then you need to be aware of the following:
- You’ll need a Green Card
- You’ll need an International Driving Permit (IDP)
These will be provided by your insurer, timeframes for issuing such a document may vary so please contact our customer service team as early as possible to avoid there being any delay in your green card being issued. The insurer may make a small charge for issuing your green card. You’ll also need to allow reasonable time for postage as it’s likely that they won’t be able to email the green card to you.
We will need to know:
- Your dates of travel
- The country or countries you’re travelling to or through
- Whether you’ll be towing
International Driving Permits
Available from the Post Office at a cost of £5.50. When making your application you will need:
- Your driving licence
- To be a UK resident
- To be 18 or over
We will try to keep you informed as and when more information becomes available.
