I am planning on driving my car abroad

Your comprehensive Car Insurance policy from John Lewis Finance gives you cover in Europe for up to 90 days. Please read your policy document for full details of your cover.

The Association of British Insurers (ABI) and Motor Insurance Bureau (MIB) advise that drivers should be prepared to have a Green Card with them when driving in the EU after midnight on 31st December 2020.

If you’re planning a trip that will finish before 31st December 2020 then nothing will change. Your current car insurance policy will cover you to drive within the EU. If you’re planning to drive in the EU after 31st December 2020, you’ll need to let us know at least a month before you leave, so we can issue you a Green Card.

We won’t charge you any fee for issuing a Green Card to you.

You can view more detailed guidance and some FAQs for motorists from the ABI here. For more information, please call us on 03300 240 612 or email us at
