We’re often asked which cover is the right type for our customers when it comes to being protected in Europe.
Basically, it comes down to how often you find yourself driving abroad. If it’s more often than once a year, then an annual policy might be the best way to go, especially as this also includes cover in the UK so only a single policy is required and more cost-effective. Paying a one-off annual payment is often easier then setting up multiple policies throughout the year.
If your journey abroad is just a one-off and you don’t make a habit out of driving in Europe then single trip cover is probably all you’ll need, and the most cost-effective for you.
If you are interested in our other options though, head to our European Breakdown cover page for all the info.
