Many of our customers will potentially need a Green Card from the day the UK exits the EU and this can only be managed by issuing temporary Green Cards. Our online form provides the option for a green card to be issued for the remaining period of insurance rather than per trip.
Allianz Motor Fleet and Motor Trade policies run from noon (12.00hrs) until noon (12.00hrs) so, for example, a policy incepting on 01/01/2019 will expire at noon (12.00hrs) on 01/01/2020 rather than 23.59hrs on 31/12/19. A broker wishing for a Green Card to run to expiry in this instance should enter the renewal date as 01/01/2020.
The MIB and their European counterparts are considering alternatives to paper Green Cards. Until there is greater clarity on the long- term solution, we feel the best solution is issuing Green Cards when the insured knows they’ll be travelling abroad.
