Brexit talks have finished and a deal has finally been struck between the UK and the EU, with just days to go until the end of the transition period. A number of changes will come into force from January 1, when the UK leaves the bloc’s rules for good.
A deal was struck on Christmas Eve, with a no-deal Brexit narrowly avoided with a matter of days to go.
Ties will officially be cut with the EU on December 31 at 11pm GMT and a slew of new rules will come into place, not just when it comes to driving and holidays abroad.
Holidays abroad will be affected by the new rules, with UK travellers only allowed to spend 90 days in any 180 day period on the continent without getting a visa.
Many Brits enjoy driving holidays on the continent, so will be wondering what the new rules mean for them.
You must carry this with your licence whenever you are using your car – it cannot replace your licence.
You will also have to apply for a ‘green card’ to prove you have the right car insurance.
This acts as proof of a UK based insurance agreement and ensures you will receive cover when travelling abroad if this is a feature of your agreement.
However, drivers need to apply for green cards themselves by contacting their provider – and this possibly takes up to six weeks.
