Driving Abroad

We will provide the same level of cover your policy cover provides for foreign travel for up to the number of days shown on the Schedule in any one period of insurance. This is providing your car is taxed, registered and normally kept in the United Kingdom, and you keep a permanent home in the United Kingdom.

We will also provide cover whilst your car is being transported by rail, air, inland waterway, the Channel Tunnel or by a recognised sea route to any country where this insurance operates and the journey time does not normally exceed 65 hours.

If your car becomes undriveable as a result of loss or damage covered by this policy we will also pay the cost of delivering it to your address in the United Kingdom. We will also pay customs duty if your car is damaged and we decide not to return it to this country after you make a claim under your contract.

Do I need to use the app to monitor when driving outside the UK or abroad?

No. We have reliable road speed limit information for England, Wales and Scotland. We don’t for other countries including for Northern Ireland, Channel Islands or Isle of Man. We recommend turning off your mobile data when driving abroad. If you forget to switch off the WiseDriving App then these journeys will not be taken into account but may use some of your data to upload to us.

Please note that in the case of the WiseDriving Mobile App we will not be liable for any data upload charges. Please refer to your mobile phone provider for instructions on how to upload data while travelling abroad.
