Green Card

The Green Card car insurance (the green part of the mandatory civil liability insurance for motor vehicles (RCA) is compulsory, but, unlike the Civil Liability Insurance for Motor Vehicles, covering the damages produced to third parties on the Romanian territory, it covers the damages produced to third parties abroad.

If the insured involved in an accident abroad produced damages to third parties, they are indemnified by the Green Card policy.

All the insurance companies provide coverage for the Green Card on the territory of the countries in the European Economic Area: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Germany, Denmark, Spain, Estonia, France, Finland, UK, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Island, Ireland, Luxembourg, Lithuania, Malta, Norway, the Netherlands, Portugal, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Slovakia, Slovenia.

There are, however, countries that are covered only by some insurance companies. The following are part of this category: Switzerland, Albania, Andorra, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Belarus, Croatia, Israel, Iran, Morocco, Moldova, Macedonia, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Ukraine.
In reference to this aspect, the insurance company providing coverage in the respective countries is chosen.

In the event the insured was indemnified following an accident produced by an insured vehicle, but registered abroad, you can refer to the Romanian Motor Insurers’Bureau for assistance.

in the event the one at fault for the damage occurrence is not identified or they do not hold a mandatory civil liability insurance for motor vehicles
(RCA) valid on the accident occurrence date, we recommend you to refer to the Street Victim Protection Fund.

The Insured’s Guaranty Fund deals with the protection of the insured in case of insolvency of an insurer. The Fund makes payments of indemnifications /compensation resulted from the optional and mandatory insurance contracts, within the terms of the law, in case of bankruptcy of an insurer, in full observance of the guarantee ceiling stipulated by law, of RON 450,000 per insurance creditor of the bankrupt insurer.

What do I do in case of damage?

The purpose of the Civil Auto Liability policies is that of covering the damages produced to a third party following an automotive event. In this situation, all measures shall be taken in order to limit the occurrence of new damages.

If the accident results in bodily injuries to one or several people or if one of the vehicles transported dangerous substances, you are bound to call the single emergency telephone number 112. In this situation, leaving the place of the accident or alteration of the traces of the accident until the appearance of the police crew is forbidden. They shall establish the fault of the parties, shall fill in the inspection report for the damaged motor vehicle.

In the case of slight accident, having resulted only in material damages, on the Romanian territory, another event inspection form can be used in order to obtain the indemnifications via the Civil Auto Liability policy.

The procedure of use of the "amicable settlement" form stipulates the mutual agreement of the car drivers. This document requires, for the fill-in thereof, particular attention to the circumstances in which the accident occurred. Practically, bureaucracy and the presence of the police crew in order to ascertain the perpetrated deed are avoided by this procedure.

If the two parties fail to agree in order to establish the guilt, they will go to the Police Station within the action range whereof the event took place, within 48 hours. In this situation, the police agent shall establish the culpability, shall fill in the report and shall release the document authorizing the repairs. The party at fault shall hand over to the injured party a copy of the mandatory civil liability insurance for motor vehicles (RCA) policy or the latter shall get it from the Police Station.

If damages were produced to you by a car registered in another country, you need to refer to the Romanian Motor Insurers’ Bureau.
