As per your signed contract, you will not have permission to take your short-term car lease abroad until express permission has been given by either Cocoon Vehicles Ltd, The Suppliers and/or the funders of the vehicle.
Before taking your short-term car lease vehicle, car subscription or flexible car lease abroad, you will require a VE103B On-Hire Certificate. This shows that the vehicle is on hire or on a lease to yourself. Without this your car could be impounded or stopped by officials.
We would ask that you give us 21 days notice to arrange the authority and the paperwork required to take your car abroad. It is also important to understand that the vehicle cannot be out of the UK for anymore than 28 days and no more than 90 days in a 12 month period.
Before Leaving the Country
You will need to complete the form below and pay the nominal fee as per the Advice of Charges for a VE103B On-Hire Certificate. All VE103B requests are accepted on a case-by-case basis and it is not an automatic right of your contract to take your vehicle abroad.
It is also important that you understand that a VE103B certificate will also be required if you are taking your vehicle to the Channel Islands (Jersey, Guernsey, Etc) and Ireland. Should your request for a VE103B be accepted, you will also have to send proof of fully comprehensive insurance whilst your vehicle is abroad, a green card with third party cover will not be accepted. European Breakdown assistance will also be required.
