European motor vehicle breakdown insurance is not the same as or a replacement for your normal car insurance. Be sure you contact your insurer and inform them if you intend to travel to Europe with your car. They will no longer issue a "green card", but they will note the countries in which you intend to travel and often will send you a form in various languages, which will help should you be unfortunate enough to be involved in an accident. Your insurance company can also confirm that you have the correct level of cover for European travel. Read more >>
