Why can’t I add son to our car’s policy?
Managing director of Insuremyhouse.ie, Insuremycar. ie & Insuremyholiday.ie listed as ‘not included’. To buy a new policy with another insurer where winter sports is included is very expensive as I need cover for myself, my husband and three teenagers. Do I have any other options? June, Co Westmeath AS a first port of call, I suggest you talk to your insurer. Listing cover as ‘not included’, would normally mean that there is an option to include. It may well be the case that you wisely chose at the time of taking out the policy to exclude this cover, as you didn’t think it would be something you would need. Most insurers will allow you to add this cover back into your policy as long as you haven’t started the holiday. This should cost no more than €10- €15 to add onto your policy.
Just one more tip — check what activities are excluded in the policy, like sledging or snowboarding — be very clear about what is covered and not covered especially with teenagers. Enjoy the holiday.
