An update on the revised Brexit date and what this means for Green Cards

With summer just around the corner, there is still ongoing uncertainty around the implications that Brexit will have on travel around the EU, EAA and Eire. In our last Brexit update, we let you know that a no-deal Brexit on the 29th of March would have resulted in you being legally required to provide proof of motor insurance in the form of a Green Card.

Following the EU and the UK's agreement to extend the Brexit date to 31st October 2019, we can now confirm that - should this date remain unchanged - insurers will no longer be required to issue Green Cards to clients for trips ending before 31st October 2019.

Should a further arrangement be made that would see both parties agreeing to the UK exiting the EU at an earlier date, Green Cards may again be required for EU travel beyond the date of this agreement if it does not allow for continuation of the current arrangements.

In this complex and unprecedented period of uncertainty, you can rely on Erskine Murray to remain proactive and supportive. As part of our ongoing commitment to our clients, we are here to answer any questions or concerns you may have around your insurer's specific requirements regarding Green Cards. Please either contact your Account Handler directly or call our office on 0116 265 4300 for further advice and guidance.

As always, we will continue to keep you updated and informed regarding Brexit and what this means for you and your insurance requirements.
