NORWICH Union is warning fleet decision-makers to ensure their drivers have suitable insurance policies before travelling overseas in their company car.
Third party insurance policies do not cover the recovery of a vehicle, which could prove to be a costly expense following an international accident, and inadequate insurance polices could leave drivers stranded without a vehicle.
Andy Kean, senior motor underwriter at Norwich Union, said: 'Most fleet policies will provide the minimum legal requirement of cover for foreign travel. Fleet managers need to inform drivers of any cover limitations in driving abroad and come to some arrangement to protect staff in case of accidents.'
Norwich Union recommends fleets provide drivers with a 'travel abroad pack' offering advice and guidance.
