Kent Messenger Maidstone - West Kent Property - - MONEY LIVING -

Hol­i­day­mak­ers are be­ing urged to check their car in­sur­ance pol­icy be­fore hit­ting the roads this sum­mer as re­search re­veals that nearly a quar­ter (23%) of those plan­ning to drive their car in main­land Europe be­lieve they ei­ther aren’t, or don’t know if they are, in­sured to drive in the EU.

When it comes to break­down cover, more than a third (34%) ei­ther don’t know, or say they wouldn’t be cov­ered if they broke down on one of main­land Europe’s roads this sum­mer, M&S Bank found.

Paul Stokes, head of prod­ucts at M&S Bank, says hol­i­day­mak­ers should check whether they have ad­e­quate car in­sur­ance and break­down cover in place, be­fore they set off.
