I'm a UK Citizen and own a car registered and insured in the UK. I have a friend who is planning on visiting from the US, entering as a tourist. They have a US driving licence.
We would like to take a road trip through Europe; I'm insured to do this in my vehicle but we would like to share the driving. I have already emailed a help request to my insurance company to ask if I could add them as a temporary driver, however I don't hold out much hope as they say on their website:
We can't amend your policy to cover a driver or vehicle on a temporary basis.
You must have a valid UK or EU licence. You must be a resident of Great Britain (not including Northern Ireland, the Isle of Man or the Channel Islands).
I have also tried some temporary insurance companies, but all seem to want a UK or EU Licence.
Are there any other options to allow my friend to drive my car, or should we be looking at rentals?
