Car insurance validity when travelling abroad – Italy
Comprehensive cover when travelling abroad
Your comprehensive car insurance policy (covering theft, vandalism, legal costs, etc.) is valid for a period of 12 months when travelling in another EU country.
Insurance cover for additional drivers when travelling abroad
Your policy will determine:
- whether you as the owner are the only person entitled to drive the insured vehicle, or if any other individual can drive it at any time,
- the conditions to allow another person to drive your vehicle,
- whether members of your family are covered to drive your vehicle.
Check with your insurer!
Trailers must be insured
The standard insurance policy in Italy for vehicles also covers the trailer when attached to the vehicle.
As a national of another EU country travelling with a trailer in Italy, do not need to take out a separate policy for the trailer.
