In many other countries, for example, the vehicle's insurance does not cover injuries you might sustain as the driver. In that case, you should take out a special driver's insurance policy. Otherwise you may not receive any compensation at all if you are involved in a single-vehicle accident or you are solely liable for an accident.
Protection for your passengers may also be less comprehensive than in Sweden.
It is therefore important to examine the terms and conditions carefully before hiring a vehicle abroad. If necessary, purchase additional insurance for both personal injury and damage.
