Posting link below for info, not just for Euromeet attendees but also anyone planning a hoon over the Channel this year.

Whilst the expectation is that your current foreign use terms may still apply this has to be ratified by the EU to be binding. I suspect a bit of BBC scare mongering here but worthy of consideration, particularly as there may be a lot of people affected.
Underwriters where I work fully expect ratification before 29th March but you can never be certain.

Might be worth checking with your insurance company as to what contingency plans they are making.

I certainly wont be letting Brexit spoil my enjoyment of some of those great European roads......

Looks like an advertorial to me.

They've not mentioned Certificates of Conformity, which is an area of unclarity - My S2000 has a Belgian one, so it is still certificated for road use over there. Dunno about other cars...

Both of my current policy documents have the following working as a footnote;
The wording below is in place of an international Motor Insurance Card (Green Card) and only provides cover to the minimum extent required by the law of these countries.
This insurance applies in respect of accidents or losses occurring in all member countries of the European Union, Andorra, Iceland, Norway, Serbia and Switzerland.


Looks like I'll try and get a green card & international driving permit asap then.

Pre EU all you needed was a green card, no problem. Post EU I guess much the same, unless they don't want/need tourism anymore.
