If you are renting a car in the UK and planning to take your hire car to the EU or EEA, you will need to carry a ‘Green Card’. To get one of these, you will need to organise Continental Cover. To arrange cover, please call our reservations hotline at least five days ahead of collection.
These vehicle documents will be provided by the rental location on collection of your hire vehicle, when continental cover is arranged in advance.
