Car Insurance -
Jargon Buster

Foreign use

Foreign Use means taking your car outside the United Kingdom to certain countries in Europe. These countries are:

Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco (France), Norway, The Netherlands (Holland), Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino (Italy), Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Vatican City (Italy).

As standard, Swiftcover car insurance gives you the minimum cover required by law in these countries - which provides basic third party insurance in case you injure another person or damage property accidentally while using your car abroad.

You can increase your cover in your online account for an additional cost based on how long the car's being driven abroad. If you have comprehensive car insurance in the UK you'll have comprehensive car insurance in the European countries that we cover by adding this upgrade in your Swift Space before you travel.

For more information, please read Section G of your policy wording.

Please note that cover options (like Legal Cover for example) are not valid outside the UK, and courtesy cars cannot be used outside England, Scotland or Wales.
