Switzerland is somewhere to visit at any time of year, even if it is seen primarily as a winter holiday destination. If you plan on driving there, Sterling’s Green Card motor insurance can cover your exciting road trip through Europe in your car, van or camper. Our prices start from £375.
Depending on the policy, standard car insurance can include European cover for a short period of time. At Sterling, for example, our motoring policies include European cover for up to 30 days.
A Green Card is documented proof a British motorist has adequate insurance cover for the country they are driving in. It is currently optional for the EU, European Economic Area (EEA), Andorra, Serbia and Switzerland – but is likely to become compulsory if the UK leaves the EU with a No-Deal Brexit.
As it is optional to have a Green Card in Switzerland, you may want to consider dedicated cover for your own peace of mind. It is definitely required if you will be in Europe for longer than your standard car insurance will cover you for.
Sterling compares prices from a panel of insurance companies so you get the very best deal. Short term Green Card cover of one, two and three months as well as longer term annual policies are available. Cover is for drivers aged 21 years or over and cover for newly qualified drivers is possible
You can motor around Europe, and even explore further afield. There’s no end of possibilities for your next adventure, so take a look at other countries where our Green Card Insurance can cover you. Make it the trip of a lifetime.
Our legal cover is a standard feature in our car insurance policies. So if you are ever involved in an accident that isn’t your fault, it can help you recover any out of pocket legal expenses afterwards.
Sterling can arrange a European Green Card to drive any UK-registered vehicle, whether you’re driving a car, van, motorhome, or campervan in Switzerland. Phone one of our experts who will find a quote that works for you and your needs.
If you happen to break down in Europe during your travels, our European breakdown cover can help you get back on the road. We also offer keycare, and windscreen as optional extras with our policies.

Green Card insurance is an internationally recognised certificate of insurance that confirms the visiting motorists have the minimum compulsory cover required by the law of the country visited.
If you’re planning a driving trip to Europe, you will want to feel confident that you have the right insurance cover in the event of an accident. Sterling can offer Green Card insurance to drivers aged 21 years or over, and also newly qualified drivers.
Yes, it will. When you buy Green Card insurance, it will remain valid throughout the duration of the policy.
