I was thinking of going to Oman for a weekend away. I have thought of driving and just wondering if I would need to purchase additional insurance to drive in Oman?
You would need to purchase some additional insurance. Even if your UAE policy includes “Oman Cover” what this actually is “Own Damage” cover for your vehicle – in other words this does not cover you for liability to third parties (aka the person you crash into). However – getting third party cover is simple – you can buy it at the Oman border on your way in (in fact they won’t let you drive in until you do in some cases).
