General Insurance Article - Brexit and travelling during the transition period

Friday 31 January 2020, the UK officially leaves the European Union and ceases to be a member state. Under the Withdrawal Agreement, the UK enters a transition period until 31 December, during which time we will continue to follow EU rules, even though no longer a member.

 Advice for motorists driving to the EU
 If, during the transition period, you are planning to take your vehicle to the EU, you will not be required to obtain a Green Card (internationally recognised proof of motor insurance). In the event of no agreement on our relationship with the EU from the end of the transition period, it may be necessary to contact your insurer to obtain a Green Card if you plan on travelling to the EU on or after 31 December 2020
 Advice for travellers to the EU
 During the transition period, the European Health Insurance Card will continue to be valid, and you should make sure that you obtain one as it gives you access to state-provided healthcare available to a resident.
 However, the EHIC it is not a substitute for travel insurance as it will not cover all medical costs, or the cost of emergency repatriation back to the UK. So make sure that you have travel insurance before you leave
