Be Wiser Insurance

Couples in the UK driving abroad regularly argue, according to new research.

Rental firm easyCar.com has revealed that 48 per cent of partners have quarrelled with each other in the car over map-reading skills.

A further 28 per cent stated that they bicker over speeding, while understanding road signs results in stern words among 21 per cent of those surveyed.

It may be that an argument behind the wheel presents a problem for motorists looking to preserve their car insurance policies, as they could risk an accident.

"A driving holiday is the best way to get off the well-trod tourist path and do some exciting trail-blazing of your own. A bit of forward planning can help make sure your road trip is stress-free," stated Bill Jones, easyCar.com chief executive.

Last week, Defaqto warned motorists ahead of the bank holiday weekend to make sure their vehicles are covered if they planned to head abroad.
