Travelling In to Europe? Ensure you are covered

When travelling overseas there is a lot to think about but one vital aspect any holidaymaker should not want overlook is car insurance.

If you are unfamiliar with the roads and landscape it could mean that you are more likely to have an accident and if one should occur, then the language barrier may also be an issue. A breakdown while overseas can also cause vast amounts of stress if the driver isn’t insured.

Whether you intend travelling via car, van or motorcycle, you need to be insured to be prepared should an accident or breakdown occur, unless you want to risk facing excessive charges and risk having your holiday ruined.

Detailed below are the benefits of having a European car insurance for your next trip abroad.

English-speaking customer services

By arranging your European car insurance with a UK-based company, you will be able to speak to an English speaking representative of the company should an accident happen. This will help to ensure that you get help as quickly as possible in the event of a breakdown.

Access to a hire car

No one wants their holiday ruined because they don’t have access to a vehicle and they won’t want to go to the added expense of paying for a hire car. However, by making sure you have an insurance policy that covers travel in Europe, you’ll be able to get access to a hire car and you can continue enjoying your trip.

Roadside assistance

Being stranded on the roadside at home can be daunting enough, especially if you have your family there as well. However, being stuck on a motorway in an unfamiliar country can be even more of a challenge, especially for those only familiar with the basics of the language. By investing in a car insurance, you can be certain that help will be on the way should the worst happen.

Towing and maintenance costs

If you breakdown while in Europe, the costs for towing the car back home can be considerable. By making certain you have a European car insurance policy in place, you can be assured there will not be a hefty bill if your vehicle needs towing back home following a breakdown.

Callout charges and Maintenance Costs

Callout charges can also be costly for European tourists that break down overseas. However, with an insurance policy in place, the additional charges will be covered.

Car maintenance costs can also prove to be expensive, which is why insurance for European trips is essential if you don’t want to face extra fees.
