Does your Gap Insurance cover your for travel abroad?

Many of us enjoy a holiday abroad, but if you use your vehicle for the trip will your Gap Insurance policy cover you for this? Many consumers who buy a motorhome, motorbike or a car will often have intentions of using the vehicle for the trip. If you have a Gap Insurance policy, will it cover you for your time outside the UK?

With all the other things you have to remember to organise with a trip abroad, your Gap Insurance cover for your vehicle, can often be overlooked. However, if you have an accident or the vehicle is stolen whist you are abroad and your vehicle insurers write the vehicle off, then you could lose thousands from the original price you paid for the vehicle.

Does Easy Gap Gap Insurance cover you abroad?

In short, your Easy Gap policy WILL provide cover whilst you are traveling abroad in your vehicle, subject to the policy terms and conditions. In specific regard for use abroad, the following conditions would need to be met amongst others:

  • Your own motor insurance provides you with cover for traveling abroad.
  • You are traveling in a European Community member state or a country covered by a valid International Motor Insurance Green Card.
  • You are currently allowed a trip of up to 120 days in any 12 month period, subject to the same terms and level of cover provided by your own motor insurance in the UK.

If you are planning a trip in your motorhome, a road trip on your motorbike or car, then a Gap Insurance policy from Easy Gap will ensure you have cover abroad. With all the other aspects you have to remember when planning a trip, it is nice to know that if you buy an Easy Gap policy, you could protect all your trips abroad for up to 5 years.
