Whether you need a Green Card will depend on which country you plan to drive in and if you will be taking a trailer or caravan.
You don’t need a green card for your main vehicle if you are driving in the EU – this includes Ireland, Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, Serbia, and Switzerland. If you are towing a trailer or caravan, you will still be required to carry a Green Card as proof of insurance.
If you are travelling to a country outside of the EU you will likely be required to carry a Green Card. For example you may need to carry a green card to drive in Albania, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Moldova, Russia, Turkey and Ukraine.

What to do if you need a Green Card
If you are visiting a country that requires a Green Card please contact our customer services team or email us the following details:
- the start and end date of your journey
- the countries you are going to visit

You must have a printed copy of the document with you when driving. Electronic versions (e.g., screenshots as well as PDF copies on smart phones) will not be accepted by any authorities who require the Green Card to be produced for inspection.
