    Road traffic accidents in the EU
    From 29 March 2019, in the event that there is no EU Exit deal, UK residents involved in a road traffic accident in an EU or EEA country should not expect to be able to make a claim in respect of that accident via a UK-based Claims Representative or the UK Motor Insurers’ Bureau (MIB).

    Instead, UK residents involved in a road accident may need to bring a claim against either the driver or the insurer of the vehicle in the EU or EEA country where the accident happened. This may involve bringing the claim in the local language.

    In the event of an accident in an EU or EEA country caused by an uninsured or an untraced driver, UK residents may not receive compensation if there is no EU Exit deal. This will vary from country to country.

    If involved in a road traffic accident in an EU or EEA country before 29 March 2019, you may need to bring legal proceedings in the UK against either the insurer or the MIB before 29 March 2019. After 29 March 2019, you may need to bring legal proceedings against either the responsible driver or the insurer of the vehicle in the EU or EEA instead. If you need more information about this, you should seek legal advice.

    The gravy train really doesn’t want us to leave.. Indeed their behaviour smaks of bullying and coercion.

    That note just sets out the situation relating to an accident between any two unconnected countries. If you had a car accident in India you’d expect to have to deal with the Indian insurance and legal system, wouldn’t you? And if a visiting Egyptian had an accident here, you wouldn’t be interested in dealing with the Cairo Association of Insurance Brokers, you’d expect him to engage with the systems here even if he didn’t speak English.

    We currently have a more advantageous arrangement than that, but if your stated aim is specifically to cancel all such arrangements then you can hardly complain that they no longer exist. You should be celebrating it.

    Otherwise you’d be like that idiotic UKIP woman complaining that the E.U. roaming charges regulations will no longer apply.

    Tell that to a pall who was run over by an uninsured driver.

    Y Yacht (and no doubt other insurers and brokers) have made some changes to continue cover -

    And the operative word is MAY! Hohum! Operation Fear in full flow! My boat insurance was renewed back end of last year, complete with the foreign language translations, no change there!

    As long as my boat is between Brest and the Elbe, and is laid up for the winter, my insurer seems not to care where she is.
