How do I apply for a Green card?
You need to get your Green Card from your insurance provider, who will send it to you through the post. You should apply for your Green Card at least two weeks before you travel, even if the no-deal Brexit hasn’t yet taken place. Allow more time if possible as demand is likely to be high.
Some insurance providers are offering to send Green Cards via email. If you opt for this method, you will need to print it double-sided in colour – it must have a green background by law. You’ll also need to trim any white edges so the green shows edge to edge.
You might be charged an administration fee by your insurance provider to get your Green Card.
Please note that, even if you bought your car insurance through Compare the Market, you need to apply directly to your insurance provider for your Green Card. Compare the Market can’t provide you with a Green Card.
