How can we help you?

Can I drive my car in Europe and abroad?

  • Yes, if you have a Comprehensive policy with General Accident then you have Comprehensive insurance cover and if you have a Third Party Fire and Theft policy you’ll get Third Party Fire and Theft cover to drive your car in most European countries.
  • You can travel for up to 180 days in a given year - but no single trip can be longer than 90 days.
  • You don't have to let us know, or amend your policy in any way - but please take your certificate of insurance with you, enjoy your trip and drive carefully!
  • You do not need a cover note from us. Please log into your My account and download a copy of your Certificate of Insurance from the 'Documents' section.

For full details about this, please refer to page 21 of your Insurance Policy document.
