Brexit Update December 2020

Dec 10, 2020

As of 1st January 2021, there will be a requirement that you hold a physical ‘Green Card’ should you wish to drive your vehicle in the EU.

Following the agreement that Green Cards can be printed in black and white, Sabre can produce these in a PDF format to be sent electronically to drivers who wish to drive abroad. However, it is important to stress that the document must be printed and electronic versions (e.g. PDF copies on smart phones) will not be accepted by any authorities who require the green card to be produced for inspection.

Republic of Ireland – For those policyholders that live in Northern Ireland and will cross the border into the Republic of Ireland, Sabre will provide an annual Green Card which can be used only for travel across the Irish border. For travel elsewhere within the EU a separate Green Card will need to be requested.

If you require a green card to be produced, please contact Underwriting Department on 0330 0244699 or email
