**** Your attention is needed before you travel ****
If you are planning on travelling to the EU this year, there have been significant changes to the documents and requirements for travelling abroad, now that the transition period for the UK leaving the EU has ended.
Below is a list of some requirements for you to consider before travelling:
Obtaining a Green Insurance Card. This is a document you can request from your insurer to make sure you have valid vehicle insurance cover in place when driving abroad
Currently paper licenses are no longer valid in the EU, only photocard licenses are accepted. If you have a paper license you can apply for an International Driving Permit (IDP) at a post office.
Number plates with the EU symbol no longer exempt you from displaying a GB sticker. Therefore, you need to ensure your car either has the up-to-date GB style number plate or a GB sticker attached to the rear.
It would be beneficial taking out an independent travel insurance policy in addition to the EHIC card.
