How to get cover for driving abroad

Going into Europe? Get covered online

Planning on driving your car in Europe? You may already be covered. Your car insurance policy provides the same level of cover you have in the UK while you are abroad in the European Union* for up to 3 days free of charge.

If you're taking a longer trip and have a booked return date to the UK, you can add the same level of insurance there as you have here. Just log in to My Swift Space and add Foreign Use Extension* to your policy. Please take your car insurance certificate with you when driving your car overseas. And have a great trip.

Please remember to keep all your details up to date because your cover could be affected if anything isn't correct.

Please note: courtesy cars may only be used in England, Wales or Scotland.
