What are the limits on my car insurance abroad?

There are several things which you should remember before you embark on your driving holiday, including the limits on your insurance policy while abroad. The most important thing to note is that some of the sections of your policy cover will only apply while driving in the Republic of Ireland, Northern Ireland and Great Britain. If your driving holiday is expected to last longer than 31 days, it is important that you contact AXA about additional cover for your car. For countries which are not listed on your policy, you should also contact AXA in regard to additional cover.
