You guest it

I read recently of some drivers having difficulty in getting temporary car insurance cover for family members visiting from overseas. As my own insurer would not even discuss my requirements outside 30 days from the arrival date in the UK of my daughter (full UK licence) and son-in-law (full NZ licence) I switched to RIAS Insurance who offered full cover for both family members for their holiday duration in UK for a very reasonable premium. I thought your readers might like to know this.
