Take a close look at the insurance document itself (the 'green card'). You will see various country abbreviations on that document, some will be crossed out. You are not covered in the countries that are crossed out. For example, in the portion of the green card shown below, there are a number of countries that are crossed out (not covered). Disregard the arrow pointing to Serbia, I used this same image for a different purpose, hence the arrow.
From what I have observed over the years here of discussions of 'continental' insurance by UK based riders, it appears that various levels of cover are provided by the UK insurance companies. Some cover the continent, some don't. In some cases, all you have to do is ask (and perhaps pay a small additional premium) to get continental coverage, in other cases, the insurance company does not offer it, hence you will have to shop around for another insurer.
Probably the best place to start is to contact your insurance broker (or insurance company) by phone and ask them to explain your policy coverage and policy options available to you.
