Single Trip European Breakdown Cover

Breakdown cover designed for single journeys from the uk to Europe and back again. This cover is the same as the annual European cover available from our providers; but it is restricted to your specified trip dates.

Some providers may include a limited UK cover within the policy, if it is purchased in advance of travel. This normally covers you if the vehicle breaks down within 7 days of your trip date and on the journey from your home address to the point of exit from the UK. It usually provides the basic level of roadside assistance, although it may also offer a hire car if your vehicle is not able to be repaired by the trip start date.

Alongside the usual roadside assistance provided by European breakdown cover, you will have several additional breakdown recovery benefits.

Repatriation plays an important role here, as if your vehicle is not able to be repaired by the time you are due to make the homewards trip then your breakdown cover provider could arrange for your vehicle to be transported back to your home address for you at a later date. Sometimes, depending on the distance, you might be paid the cost of public transport back out to your vehicle once repairs are complete; so that you may drive the vehicle back yourself. Or, if your main driver is taken ill and no other passengers are eligible to drive the vehicle, your breakdown recovery provider may be able to provide a chauffeur to help you get back home.

If the vehicle cannot be repaired at the roadside, then arrangements will normally be made to have the vehicle towed to a nearby garage for repairs. There is often provision in your European breakdown cover for onwards travel, overnight accommodation, or a hire vehicle, if your vehicle cannot be repaired within a certain time frame. Make sure to check through the policy wording on any restrictions to this hire vehicle clause, as you will often be using local companies there may be restrictions on driver’s ages, license types, or other limitations that may apply, and hire vehicles may not be available to replace certain types of vehicle.

If your vehicle does needs repairs, the cost of spare parts is not normally included, so be sure to check the policy documents for more details. One handy point though is that European breakdown policies can sometimes include free delivery of the spare parts if they are not available locally. So, although you may have to pay for the part itself, at least you might not have to worry about how it gets to you.

Hello
I had a change use it - I am very surprise. My car was broken in Germany- I've made phone call and gay from Alianz take my all details and inform us that we have to wait - when coming assistance, he didn't speak English so the Alianz organised the translator, - Alianz called to us to checked that everytyhing is okay and they was prepared to Plan B - continue our journey and back to home.
My husband repaired himself our car and we can to continue a journey.
But I want to say thank you to Alianz team for processional work.

Competitive price with all the 'extras' we needed. Fortunately we did not have to use the service!

Easy to buy and fair price

Whilst it is an extra cost to our trips, it is worth the peace of mind to know that in the event of an incident with the car, all may be dealt with. Thankfully, the few times that I have bought the cover from CBC, I have not had to call them out - this is the reason that I have not given a 5 star rating, as I cannot honestly comment on the full service.

What is positive though, is that the communications and professionalism of CBC is of a high standard, and on this occasion, actually worked out cheaper than any other company. It also has good reviews from Money Saving Expert.com, my main "go to" site for most of anything I purchase or if I want to find out about something.


On 20-Apr-2017 the supplier responded:

Buying cover was straightforward - I had no need to call on its services while away from home - you only know how good something is when you need to use it!

++

Didn't need it but good to know it was in place

Was the easiest thing to buy (but fortunately didn't need it so have no idea how good the service would have been!).

I think was good because when you are abroad far from home the break down cover makes you feel more safe

Five stars for me means perfect

Good to have as a guarantee if required to have work done.

Bought european breakdown cover and saved thousands when claimed.


On 12-Jan-2017 the supplier responded:

We agree!  That's what insurance is for - of course, there will be times where you do not claim.  But for the sake of the cost of a cheapish meal it is worth buying insurance so that you do not have to spend the cost of a good holiday on a vehicle breakdown.  Thank for purchasing CBC breakdown Cover.

We're delighted that we could help and hope that you had a great trip.

Many thanks
