Border Insurance Characteristics
Border Insurance is a temporary International Motor Insurance Card, formerly known as a temporary “Green Card”.
EVER USE IT?
WHAT DOES BORDER INSURANCE COVER?
It only covers, and for a limited period, the minimum Civil Liability demanded by each country of the EEA.
WHAT IS NOT COVERED
As such, it doesn’t cover roadside assistance damage to your own vehicle, defense costs, etc
when do you need it?
You must acquire it when you access a country outside the EEA with your vehicle, unless you have been provided an International Motor Insurance Card issued by your insurance company.
All vehicles that come from countries out of the European Economic Area (EEA) shall access Spanish territory (and consequently the EEA) with a valid green card. To do so, they can either get one from their country of origin or if not, they must get one as soon as they enter Spanish territory.
Such green cards issued to foreign vehicles in the Spanish border zones are called Border Insurance (in Spanish, abbreviated to “SEFRON”)
