Frequently asked questions

Yes, we offer Temporary European car insurance. Our insurance includes third-party cover for a trip to countries within the EU, the EEA and Switzerland automatically – as long as the car is in the UK when the insurance starts and finishes.

We can’t provide insurance to you in a country outside of the EU, EEA and Switzerland.

Our Temporary European car insurance includes cover for countries within the EU, the EEA and Switzerland.

EU countries are:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Republic of Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and the UK.

European Economic Area (EEA):

The EEA includes EU countries and also Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

If you’re only borrowing a car and going abroad for a few days, why should you pay for an annual insurance policy? If you’re planning on borrowing or sharing a car, any existing annual insurance policy would only cover you if you added that vehicle to it and even if you were able to, that could push up your premiums by a lot. Temporary European car insurance gives you the flexibility to take out cover on your mate’s or family members car from 1 hour up to 30 days, which means you could split the long drive ahead. The opportunities are literally endless.

You must be aged between 18-75 and you must hold a full and valid license issued by either the UK, EU, EEA, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa or Switzerland. For temporary European cover, your trip must start and end in the UK and you will only be covered for driving in countries within the EU, the EEA and Switzerland.

A Green Card is issued by the driver’s insurer and acts as evidence that the minimum legal cover required is in force for the country visited whilst driving outside the UK. The Green Card is a physical document which is printed on green paper and cannot be issued in an electronic format.

If you are travelling to the EU and will return prior to 31st December 2020, you do not need a Green Card and do not need to contact us for a Green Card.

If you are planning to be driving your vehicle in the EU on or after 1st January 2021 you may need a green card, please email support@jauntinsurance.co.uk at least 14 days before you plan to travel so we can understand your needs and issue you with a Green Card if you require one.

Please note, a £10.00 administration fee will be charged and payable to Jaunt to cover the costs associated with the issuing and posting the Green Card documents.
