Advice on road accidents in Greece involving vehicle with foreign registration plates


  • Call the Road Traffic Police to register the accident

  • Make sure you write down the correct foreign vehicle registration number and its country of origin

  • Be sure to record the vehicle's make and model

  • Ask the foreign driver for their Green Card or insurance policy. If possible, photocopy or take a photo of the Green Card or insurance or cut off a copy of the Green Card or frontier insurance policy. If this is not possible, note down in detail paragraphs 3,4,5 and 10 of the Green Card. If there is an insurance policy, copy down the name of the foreign insurance company, the policy number and dates of validity.

  • Contact the Motor Insurers' Bureau - Greece as soon as possible for further instructions

  • The Greek Bureau handles all motor accidents that occur in Greece for vehicles with registration plates from another member state of the Green Card System and is supplied with a Green Card or Frontier Insurance Certificate, or comes from a member state of the EU or the E.E.A.
