What is the Green Card system?
The Green Card is designed to help cars move more easily across Europe. It acts as an internationally recognised car insurance document.
You don’t have to have a Green Card to drive in Europe, but in some countries you may be asked to produce it by the local authorities.
Having a Green Card also guarantees that the victim of an accident caused by a foreign vehicle will be compensated in the country of the accident, if the driver of the foreign vehicle was found to be at fault.
Green Cards are provided free by car insurance providers.
