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.

Service and price very good. Thankfully, no breakdown or accident on my recent 30 day holiday in Spain so no need to communicate to assess your assistance. I will no doubt contact you again next year as I drive to my holiday home in Spain every summer.

hello fortunately I didnt breakdown so cannot comment on any service ,but everything else was good

Our car broke down in Germany while on our journey through Europe. It took a while until the recovery trailer came to get us from the motorway, but all the agents that dealt with our claim were realy helpfull, with a few exceptions... We were glad that the hotel costs were fully covered (4 nights for 2 adults and 6 kids) although the cost was a bit over the maximum cover limit. Also the person who booked our plane tickets to continue our journey was realy helpfull, the taxi came very quickly to take us to the airport. Although I appreciate the effort and professionalism of the team that dealt with our claim there is one lady there that needs some extra training before dealing with the clients. She insisted that we had to pay for the hotel costs and when we return to the Uk the insurance will reimburs the costs....really?! Apart from that, we were glad that the insurance company eventually did what they had to do and our troubled holiday ended fine. I think I will still buy from them next time


On 22-Sep-2017 the supplier responded:

Thank you for your kind review of our European Breakdown Cover following your recovery.  We're sorry that you had a little difficulty, but managed to sort everything out. 


We hope that you otherwise had a great trip.

Clear and concise

Easy to set up cover, good value. Didn't need to use it so no issues.

-

As I never used it, I don't know how good the service is. As you would appreciate, until you make a request of the service it is difficult to rate it.

++

It was easy to buy and download. I have no idea on the follow through as I never had the need to use the service. The procurement side was easy.

++

Easy to arrange online, the breakdown insurance gives you peace of mind should the worst happen on a long drive in France. Fortunately had no problems with my car so can't comment on the service as a result of breaking down.

Great value
