Hi

I arrive tomorrow and have the opportunity to borrow my Canarian friends car.  I'm not insured via my Uk insurance and have been advised to either get Spainish cover whilst there ( hoping 8 to 10 wks) or my friend insures me on his insurance.  I would prefer to insure myself so as not to bother my friend.  Any advice appreciated.  Cheers Claire :-)

In Spain it’s the car that is insured not the driver so if your friend has fully comprehensive insurance it will apply to any driver
