If you are travelling in the UK before they leave the EU, there is change to the cover your policy provides.

If when the UK leaves the EU, they do so on a ‘No-Deal Brexit’, the UK will accept a valid motor insurance certificate or disc as proof of insurance for Irish-registered vehicles.

In relation to Irish registered motorcycle or agricultural tractor vehicles, some of these vehicles display insurance discs and some do not. If you are travelling to the UK including Northern Ireland, no additional documentation is required if the vehicle has a valid Irish insurance disc. However, if the vehicle does not have a valid Irish insurance disc then it is recommended that you carry your motor insurance certificate with you or obtain a Green Card from your insurance provider.

It’s important to note that some of the requirements in this article might change, depending on what terms are decided when the UK leaves the EU: You can view official Brexit updates from GOV.UK.
