LONDON, July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

In times of economic uncertainty more and more people are looking to alternative modes of travel that will save them money, with many considering driving as the cheaper way to travel, especially if travelling as a group. As people use their cars more as part of their holidays, it is vital that they are protected by the correct car insurance. Price comparison websites, such as comparethemarket.com, will not only help people compare cover to find the best for them, but are also another way for people to save money on their overall holiday costs.

With many expected to use their car to drive themselves to European holiday destinations, it is also important that drivers understand the rules of the road in the host country. For example France has recently made it compulsory for drivers to carry breathalysers, in addition to the requirement for drivers to have florescent jackets on-board for themselves and each of their passengers.  

Simon McCulloch, Director of Insurance at comparethemarket.com said: "As people take to the roads this summer, comparethemarket.com provides customers with an easy way to compare car insurance policies, to find the best cover at the best price for their holiday. Car touring is one of many popular ways people use their cars in the summer, and with the increased usage there is increased risk of incident, therefore getting the right car insurance cover is an obvious first step to having a happier holiday."
