NI Drivers May Need 'Green Card' To Travel Across The Border

Those who are hoping to take a trailer to countries that require separate insurance for them will need a separate green card for their trailer too.

A deal has been struck between United Kingdom and European insurance authorities in May to waive the need for Green Cards in the event of a no-deal Brexit. Moreover, anyone crossing the Irish border by road will also be liable to these laws.

Speaking in the Dáil (Irish parliament) on Thursday, the Irish foreign minister said that the green card system would also apply to Irish drivers travelling in Northern Ireland and the rest of the UK.

You should request your Green Card from your insurance provider at least one month before you are due to travel.

Motorists may also be required to carry an global driving permit to drive within each jurisdiction in the event of a no-deal Brexit, with the United Kingdom government already planning to offer these documents at post offices from next month.

If there is a "no deal" scenario, will my insurance policy still be valid if I drive my auto in the South of Ireland?

United Kingdom motorists have been warned to take action or risk breaking the law on vehicle insurance in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

It provides a guarantee of insurance for a minimum of 15 days and can remain valid until the expiry date of the motor insurance policy, providing cover for multiple trips.

The ABI warned that companies may apply a "small administrative charge" to issue green cards.

Systematic border checks of the document as proof of third-party motor insurance have been abolished in the area.

"If travellers are wanting to drive overseas after this date, even if we do manage to agree on a deal, it is nearly a certainty that Britons will have to purchase International Driving Permits (IDP) for the countries they hope to explore in".

In new guidance, the Association of British Insurers (ABI) said drivers should contact their insurer to arrange what is known as a green card.

This would have unsurprisingly have lasting impact on Brits and the way we travel, shop and live our lives.

"Despite "no deal" uncertainty about the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC), I want to reassure people that their travel insurance will continue to operate in the normal way when it comes to medical expenses, as emergency medical treatment is a standard feature", stated ABI director general Huw Evans.

'You should contact your insurer before you travel in order to get one.

Mr Evans warned a no-deal situation would be "bad for the economy and bad for our customers" and urged the government and the EU27 to "agree an orderly way forward".
