Does car insurance cover a red weather warning? Essential Storm Eunice advice for drivers


Does my car insurance cover me if I am in a collision during the storm?

In the same way as if you are involved in a collision in normal weather conditions, if you end up in an accident during a red weather warning, your insurance remains valid.

However, the rule applies that you must not be taking unnecessary risks, otherwise your insurer may be able to hold contributory negligence against you.

You should endeavour to drive safely, within the speed limits, and in accordance with the Highway Code, regardless of the weather.

Similarly, drivers should take note of any National Highways warnings regarding dangerous roads to drive on.

According to the Association of British Insurers: “We would urge all drivers to pay close attention to advice from local authorities and the emergency services in areas affected by snow – particularly where there is a red warning.”

They added: “Motor insurance will cover you in the usual way, providing you are driving within the law.”
