Taking your vehicle abroad
Get away from it all in your Motability vehicle.
Your insurance cover allows you to take your vehicle abroad free of charge for up to 90 days in any 12 month period. You no longer need a Green Card for driving in the EU.
We cover travel to within the European Union and to Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland. We do not cover travel to any other countries.
What you will need
Things to note
Trailers and caravans
If you are towing a trailer or caravan you will need a separate Green Card for them.
Please note that caravans and trailers only have third party cover whilst attached to your vehicle. We strongly suggest you get separate insurance to cover them.
There are also new rules on number plates and displaying UK stickers. You can find more information here.
Travelling between Northern and Southern Ireland
Customers living in Northern Ireland are insured to travel freely between Northern and Southern Ireland at all times. We will issue a Green Card for your full lease within three months of collecting your vehicle.
If you're travelling for more than 90 days, you must contact us at least three weeks in advance of your journey. We will consider your request and there may be a charge. If your request is permitted, we will send you written consent including a Green Card (if required).
