Please advice, my daughter, 21, is moving to southern Ireland for a 1 yr placement job as part of her degree. We know that normally she would have to register her car 1 month after arrival in Ireland and get Irish insurance, which is ok. Note that on the other hand as a student she would be entitled for exemption up to 12 months. But my immediate question is how to get there in the first place?
I have looked into temporary insurance and many other options, the best way I came up with is to get a normal annual insurance which includes usually 90 days in EU, and then cancel it after one or two months. In that time she can register the car and get Irish insurance. Because all temporary insurance says that the car has to be back in the UK at the end, and is also very expensive.
She have one more day to decide, she currently does not have any insurance on the car yet.
Please advice. Thanks a million.
