These city break destinations are perfect for a road trip with a rental car!


Summer is here at last, but sadly the Irish weather is yet to realise. If you’re sick of rainy commutes and awaiting the next heatwave, why not book a road trip?

With AIG now offering amazing deals on car insurance, renting a car abroad is better value than ever before. Check out our top pick for city breaks!



Fancy hopping on a quick flight? Or a relaxing ferry journey? Manchester might just be the place for you. With lots of cool museums, parks and a buzzing city centre, the city has so much to offer.


Great Scott! It’s time you took a break! And where better to head than the moors of Scotland? Glasgow is a cheaper alternative to Edinburgh, but no less fun! It’s a great spot for a cheap night out, with plenty of history to enjoy by day. While you’re there, we highly recommend taking a spin to the Highlands to check out the views!



Sun, sea, sand and sangria, Lisbon has it all! Whether you feel like partying, or relaxing on the beach, Lisbon has exactly what you need. You can enjoy all the amazing seafood and scenery that the capital city has to offer, and take a road trip along the Portuguese coast too while you’re there. 



Escape to the European capital of partying, and enjoy some of the wildest clubs and bars you’ll ever find! But if Berghain sounds boring, check out the endless list of quirky exhibits, markets and vintage shops across town!


Impress your significant other, and bring them on a trip to the city of love! Enjoy the sights and sounds that inspired Shakespeare to write Romeo and Juliet, while enjoying all the best of Italian cuisine. Finish things off with a splash, and a quick journey to nearby Venice before you leave.



If historic architecture is more your thing, catch a tan while visiting La Sagrada Familia and the home grounds of FC Barcelona. Meanwhile the gothic quarter provides a night time alternative for all of you night owls out there too.

Get on the road during your weekend away! If you're aged 27 or under, AIG BoxClever could be the secret for good value and affordable car insurance. Simply by proving that you're a safe driver, you could end up with a cheaper quote. The safer you drive, the more kilometres you will be rewarded enabling you to stay in the driver's seat for longer. Find out more here.
