Can I drive my car in Europe and abroad?

  • Yes, if you have a Comprehensive Aviva Online and Aviva Premium motor insurance policy then you have Comprehensive insurance cover
  • You can travel for up to 180 days in a given year - but no single trip can be longer than 90 days.
  • You don't have to let us know, or amend your policy in any way - but please take your certificate of insurance with you, enjoy your trip and drive carefully!
  • You do not need a cover note from us. Please log in to MyAviva, choose your Aviva Motor policy and download a copy of your Certificate of Insurance from the Documents section.

For full details about this, please refer to page 21 of your Insurance Policy document.

Please note that as the UK is no longer part of the European Union you will need a Green Card for travel in Europe.

If you need a Green Card you can request one:

  1. Log in to MyAviva.
  2. Select your Aviva Motor policy, then choose Details
  3. Select 'Request Green Card' from your My homepage
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions

Once you've followed the steps above and successfully requested a Green Card it will be dispatched within two working days by first class post.
