Car Insurance for Expats in Portugal

Every year people leave the UK and make a permanent move to the continent. With beautiful sun, sea, food and culture to soak up, Portugal is fast becoming a favourite destination for British expats, whether they move for work or retirement.

With all the worry and hassle of finding a home, a job and securing all the essentials in a foreign country, considering car insurance is often low down the list of priorities of many expats. The sad truth is that many Brits can find it difficult to get their UK registered cars covered in Portugal, as some Portuguese and British insurers can't or simply won't help.

To help our globetrotting customers keep their cars safe and insured overseas, at HIC we are happy to be able to provide expat car insurance for those living in Portugal. As long as you keep your UK registered car in Portugal or another European country for at least 8 months of the year, we can provide you with expat insurance that has been designed with your needs in mind.

With HIC's expats insurance you can get comprehensive car insurance whilst you live in Portugal and whilst driving in Europe, and we will even cover you when you come back to the UK to visit friends and family with green card insurance. We will also insure any vehicle you choose to take abroad with you, from cars to motorhomes and campers, meaning you won't have to buy a new vehicle to take abroad.

Keeping You Insured Whilst Living Abroad

Whilst you are living and driving abroad, you need to have the peace of mind that you are fully protected and covered, on top of getting good value for money. Our policy has been designed to offer you great cover, with a range of options and added extras to help you tailor the cost and level of cover to your needs.
