Is tyre sealant effective for punctures or should I buy a spare wheel?

I have just bought a new Volvo V40 which has not been supplied with a spare wheel, do you recommend sealant for a repair or buying a spare?

Buy a space saver spare kit. Post-puncture sealants are almost completely useless. Here's where you can buy one: bit.ly/2ZH4C1k
