Brexit consequences

The United Kingdom will most likely leave European Union structures without an agreement on 31 December 2020. The country remains a member of the Green Card system, and the relationship between the Bureaux will continue to be based on the principle of presumed insurance coverage (normally based concept). However, the problem of border checks on entry into the United Kingdom remains. For this reason, vehicles registered in the Republic of Bulgaria must carry the original Green Card certificate if they intend to travel by car to the United Kingdom after 1 January 2021, as it can be requested/checked at the border of that country by the competent British authorities. We recommend that you request a Green Card certificate from the insurer or your insurance broker if you plan to travel by car to the United Kingdom, regardless of the purpose of the trip.

After 1 January 2021, the European Directives will not apply to the United Kingdom. This means that insurance companies will no longer have claims representatives and the British Compensation Body will no longer exist. After 1 January 2021, victims of accidents occurred on the territory of the United Kingdom or in the territory of an EEA country, caused by vehicles registered in the United Kingdom, will not be able to make claims in Bulgaria to the claims representatives and to the NBBMI as Compensation body. Claims for damages should be made directly to the insurance company of the liable vehicle or in case of uninsured vehicle, to the UK Guarantee fund.
