Motorists warned not to forget car insurance when driving in Europe

Holidaymakers who intend to drive in the European Union outside the UK this summer are being urged to make sure their car insurance policy covers EU travel .

Following the recent air travel problems caused by volcanic ash disruption, many people will be looking for an alternative to flying and travelling by car could prove attractive for many.

However, Andrew Ferguson, M&S Head of General Insurance, said: “It is crucial for drivers who are making longer journeys by car for the first time, to make sure they have the adequate car insurance and breakdown cover in place, so that they have peace of mind should the worse happen.”

It’s important to check if an insurance policy includes cover for driving in Europe before setting off as while motorists will enjoy discovering parts of a country that are missed when flying, the distance can take its toll and result in car breakdowns and delays if adequate preparations are not taken.
