Remember! To travel abroad by car, the driver must take out a Green Card insurance policy. This car insurance is mandatory in 50 countries, including the EU. If the driver does not have an insurance policy, he or she will have to compensate for all damages (to the car, driver and passengers) at his or her own expense. At the same time, he will additionally be fined for not having insurance for the vehicle, the amount of which depends on the period of insurance expiration. In some cases, the police may seize the vehicle and deport the driver with a subsequent entry ban.
You can apply for a Green Card quickly and easily here. There is a special offer on the website: when you take out a car insurance policy for traveling abroad for a period of 1 month or more, you will receive fuel as a gift, or for a period of 6 months or more - + 15 days of the policy as a gift.
