If you are planning on driving abroad you should remember:

  • Always keep with you your driving licence and car insurance documentation.
  • Read the car insurance policy carefully to make sure you have the level of cover you need.
  • Take out adequate breakdown cover
  • Learn the laws of the road to where ever you are going.


The majority of temporary car insurance policies will protect you when you are abroad, although you may want to check that they offer an adequate level of cover. Some companies will only offer the minimum third party cover, which may not be right for you.


Third party will only cover you if anyone is injured in your car or the car you collide with and the costs of damages. Full comprehensive, on the other hand, will cover third party insurance as well as fire damage, theft and your vehicle in an accident.


There are many companies that offer temporary car insurance for abroad. Take time to look at a few car insurance quotes and find the best deals. You can find peace of mind though obtaining adequate insurance policy will help you to relax and enjoy your holiday.
