Driving in Europe and Brexit – all you need to know
Whatever the outcome over the next few months, we’ve got some advice on the changes ahead so that you can still drive abroad with confidence.
The RAC will continue to breakdown cover through our partners operating in Europe. We’re the only breakdown provider that cover all costs to get your vehicle home*.
To drive in Europe in the event of a no-deal Brexit you’ll need additional documents: - An international Drivers Permit which you’ll be able to purchase from the Post Office – there are three different IDPs depending on which country you plan to drive in, so it is important you check which one is required. (further reading: International Driving Permit) - You’ll also require a Green Card from your insurer. These are free, however you may encounter a small admin fee for this. It’s recommended you request it up to 4 weeks before your trip starts.
Travel insurance is recommended in the event that the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) system isn’t replaced.
If you’re travelling with pets there are changes that will impact you too.

*With RAC Comprehensive Plus European Breakdown Cover all costs to get your vehicle home are covered providing the vehicle repairs do not exceed the market value of your vehicle and that repairs cannot be completed by your planned departure date.
