From having the right kit in your car to understanding how difficult it can be to handle your vehicle in icy and snowy conditions, there’s a lot for drivers to think about.
Here’s what you the great team over at Confused.com need you to know:
Does my insurance cover me in a red weather warning?
Yes, you should be covered by your insurance in the event of a red weather warning. If you have concerns or just want peace of mind, then get in touch with your insurer.
Comprehensive car insurance should cover you for accidents that happen during bad weather.
Both comprehensive and third-party insurance will also cover you for damage to someone else’s car.
However, if an accident happens as a result of irresponsible driving – regardless of the weather -, then your insurer may not pay out.
With that in mind, you should always take extra care when driving in severe weather conditions.
1. Always check the forecast
Everyone knows that the weather in the UK can be pretty changeable at the best of times.
In winter that means that what looks like a pleasant day can quickly deteriorate into heavy rain, fog or snow.
Checking how conditions are likely to develop – especially before a long trip – is crucial.
Allow extra time for your journey when necessary, and if possible avoid heading out onto the roads when conditions are poor.
Bear in mind that major roads are more likely to stay clear, and make sure you are aware of alternative routes if necessary.
