This morning I renewed my fulltiming policy with Comfort, hardly gone up since last year. I count myself lucky to have paid 'only' £860 for the year, I know many pay a lot more.
Hi Paul, I've got off the dubious pleasure next month..Yes, European breakdown and posessions insurance included. I asked about getting a green card for our European trip next month but they only issue them 21 days before you travel apparently. Our premium went up less than £15 over last year.
Why not just go and get them anyway ? Only £5.50 each and valid for 12 months, so even if we end up not needing them it isn't a great financial burden, but if we do then you will be one step aheadAlso got to see if we need international driving permits, all very confusing.

Same in Germany, it is the vehicle that is insured and not the driver. I suppose that whilst ever a Green Card was not needed it was more economical for U.K. Insurers not to bother issuing them, but if it becomes necessary then they should just issue with the Insurance Policy. I note however that, whilst Comfort say they will not charge, other Insurers are....... !!!It's a shame that UK insurers don't do the same as Portuguese (and Spanish??) and just include green card with all car insurance----- our Portuguese car has a green card as standard ---we also like the fact that the CAR is insured whoever is driving it-------- but most of all we love the cost!!!!
We are still using our UK licences so will get IDP before we return!!
Can you explain your rationale for those little gems Alan Perhaps you are really a reporter that is responsible for some of the scaremongering media articles that keep getting published If they will insure vehicles for driving in Africa then cannot see any reason why they wouldn't insure them for driving in Europe ? Likewise, why would EU Countries not continue to Insure for coming to UK, it isn't them that are splitting the relationship with the UK, it is the other way around and UK are not imposing restrictions on drivers from EU like EU are with us, we are still the idiots in this fiasco !!dare say many insurance companies just wont insure drivers going abroad.
be back to border insurance. might even be that eu companies stop insuring eu drivers coming to uk.
