All these countries are in the EU so green cards are not necessary. Your normal UK insurance must cover you for all EU states, so your insurance certificate is sufficient. I know Slovenia has signed up to the Schlengen Agreement for open borders, don't think the others have but I wouldn't expect any delay or excessive document checks.

If You take your insurance from the UK with you you won't have a problem in these countries

We found the Crossing from Romania into bulgaria was the one that took longer and they did check all the paper work and the frame number on the V5 against the one on the Bike.

You will have a problem if you try to cross from Bulgaria in the Bosnia .

Have a good trip

romania and bulgaria

just returned from a long weekend in bulgaria was not even asked to take helmet off just waved through. when we where asked for documents as soon as we took them from our pockets the customs did not check them just seemed happy we had them.
now living in brasov romania with house can offer accom to all and have just about all the kit to service or repair bikes if not have a mate with an airospace company that can make any bike part you need expect to pay a good bottle of wiskey.
if anyone gets stuck will do the usual and recovery you with the van but expect a drink. if i cant fix your bike have a few yam xts 750s you can use until yours if is sorted.
pm for my tel if you need
regards
mike
