Drivers Warned of Adverse Weather Conditions

Posted in General News on Wednesday, June 29th, 2022

The car insurance comparison site, has warned motorists to check their insurance policies before venturing out in the coming week because of the possibility of flooding caused by thunderstorms. The comparison site warns that some policies do not cover vehicles when they are damaged by water. For this reason, drivers should think twice before driving through waterlogged roads. Greg Wilson, Founder of, said: “Motorists who have taken out third party only or third-party, fire and theft insurance wouldn’t be covered for any storm damage to their vehicles – only fully-comprehensive policyholders are likely to be protected in those cases. If a storm is predicted, look at official flood warnings, avoid roads that are likely to flood and allow more time for your journey, note you may have to pull over and wait it out if the downpour starts to affect your visibility – not forgetting to put on the hazard lights. Unfortunately, if motorists do decide to drive through waterlogged roads, there’s a very real risk that they won’t be covered for any resulting water damage to the car – even fully-comprehensive drivers.”
