Car insurance validity in the EU – Slovakia
Affected by Brexit?
Third party motor insurance
When you move temporarily to the Slovak Republic from another EU country (as a student, pensioner, second home owner, cross-border commuter), your existing insurance policy from another EU country is still valid in the form of an international green vehicle insurance card during the period which it was signed for.
The risk assessment scheme commonly used by vehicle insurers in the Slovak Republic is called a bonus / malus system, this does not affect the registration and operation of the vehicle. The bonus / malus system is monitored by insurance companies only. Documents issued to a vehicle in another EU country are accepted for the operation of the vehicles if they are produced in accordance with EU Directive No. 1999/37.
If you do not agree with an insurance payout or any other decision taken by your insurer, you may contact another insurance company or the Slovak Insurance Office.
