The accident coverage of your legal expenses insurance is often valid throughout Europe and in some cases you even have worldwide coverage. Here you are not only insured for accidents with the car, but also as a (moped) cyclist or pedestrian.

Consumer affairs

Are you buying something abroad or renting a car over which a conflict arises with the rental company? It differs per insurer whether these disputes are covered or not. One insurer may cover this within Europe or the European Union. Some insurers offer no cover at all for this abroad.

Second home abroad

Do you have a second home abroad and does a conflict arise about this? It is not always possible to appeal to your legal assistance insurance. Usually the coverage is limited to within the Netherlands. It is possible that insurers cover conflicts within Europe, but only if you yourself use the house and do not rent it out.

It is important to consider what the best coverage is for you when taking out legal expenses insurance. Do you often travel abroad or do you even have your own home abroad? Pay close attention to the coverage, also to the additional modules.
