  • What insurances do you recommend?
    The answer to this question really depends on personal preference, as people’s needs for peace of mind can vary greatly. We have witnessed many cases where people regret not buying extra insurance due to a costly incident and cases where people never use the extra insurance that they bought. That is simply the nature of insurance; it is highly valuable when you need it but useless when you don’t. We simply cannot make that decision for you. We can, however, tell you that if you should decide for one of our insurance packages, you will have a way more relaxed road trip. We always recommend the Gravel protection as a minimum as Scandinavia has a lot of gravel roads and stones can easily damage the glass of the car.
