Check your insurance, Brits driving to Ireland are advised

Despite the travellers from the UK are able to drive freely in the Republic of Ireland using a British driving license, those heading across the Irish Sea with their cars should check the content of their motor insurance policies before travelling, one provider has advised.AA Ireland spokesman Thomas Brosnan has reminded motorists to check the extent of their cover before heading to the country.While some policies include comprehensive cover while in the UK, they may only allow for third party cover in Ireland.Mr Brosnan commented: "If a person is bringing their own vehicle here, certainly they should check with their own insurance company the level of cover they will have while here."It would be advisable for the motorists to take out their own breakdown cover… because if there's an accident or whatever it can be expensive."Tourism Ireland's most recent figures show that 4.97 million Brits visited Ireland in 2006.
