I'm not sure what exactly that means? As far as I know you cannot have a UK registered vehicle registered to a Greek address. If it is UK registered the log book must contain a UK address. Presumably you had UK insurance based on that address before you came to Crete. I would have thought you would have made sure that insurance lasted for whatever period you intended to keep it in Crete, up to a maximum of 6 months, and also a green card for the same period?
You are probably going to have to lie to a UK insurance company and pretend that the vehicle is in the UK, at whatever address is in the log book, in order to get new insurance. Once you have the new insurance tell them you intend to drive to Crete and ask them for a new green card. If they ever find out that you have lied then the insurance would be invalid. If you tell them that the vehicle is in Crete and that is where it is normally kept I would be amazed if any company would insure it. If the vehicle has been here more than 6 months it is already here illegally.
Some 20 years ago I insured our UK reg car with a Greek company in Chania - Alpha I think it was. Had the insurance for about 1 year before legally importing the car and getting Greek plates (yes , we lived here all the time) and the insurance company just changed the reg no! Not sure you can do that any more but might we worth a try? Bob.
