Taking your car abroad

Your insurance cover allows you to take your car abroad within the European Union and to Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Liechtenstein free of charge for up to 90 days in any 12 month period.

VE103 certificate

All Motability customers need to take a VE103 (Vehicle on Hire) form when travelling to foreign countries in a Motability car. It proves you are allowed to take the car abroad and will cover you for 12 months. You can get this from RAC Motability Assist.

Telephone the RAC Motability Assist foreign travel line on 0800 73 133 10 at least three weeks before you intend to travel.

European breakdown cover

It is a good idea to get breakdown cover for foreign travel, otherwise you will be responsible for any recovery charges. You will be offered RAC European Breakdown Cover when you request your VE103.
