up-to-date with the latest news
and developments affecting
the garage motor trade.

I am extremely impressed with the way in which garagecover has guided me safely through the insurance minefield this year. To take the time and effort to visit my premises, and discuss every aspect of cover with me meticulously is a real thumbs up to the way in which WCIB do business. I have already recommended his services to others, and will happily entrust my business in his safe hands for many years to come.

Driving Abroad After Brexit

Uncertainty remains on whether the UK will leave the European Union with or without a Withdrawal Agreement in place (a ‘No Deal Brexit’). If a ‘no deal’ does happen, UK motor insurance customers wishing to drive their vehicle to the European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA), Andorra, Serbia or Switzerland after 29th March 2019 will have to obtain a Green Card.  Also, your driving licence may no longer be valid by itself when driving in the EU.

As a valued WCIB customer, please give your account executive a call as soon as possible, especially if you or any of your employees are intending to drive abroad after Brexit, so that we can ensure that you remain fully covered and compliant with any requirements that may apply.
