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.

Our Single-Trip European Breakdown Cover Reviews

Feedback for CBC Single Trip European Breakdown Cover has been compiled from 201 customer reviews:

I've rated you 5* in terms of purchasing the service. I fortunately did not have to use the service whilst on holiday so I'm unable to give comments on that experience.
I purchase this product as a peace of mind whilst on holiday driving through France. I've purchased this cover before and find it quite straightforward and reasonably priced in the market. I had to call to amend the length of cover as we had decided to extend our stay. The customer service advisor was polite, efficient and sorted this amendment out fairly quickly.
I will use the service again in the future.

++

Simple and affordable

I had the cover I needed, for our trip to France, but in the end I did not need to ask for help.
I would not have travelled without breakdown cover, the price you quoted was good value and I had peace on mind while so far away from home.


On 18-Jul-2017 the supplier responded:

Thank you for leaving your kind review of CBC European Breakdown Cover, we agree insurance is equally as much about peace of mind.  We delighted that you found ourpricing to be good and hope that you had a wonderful trip.

Many thanks

I broke down on the M25 on the way to Germany at the start of my holiday and contacted my regular Brittania Rescue first. They arranged to tow my car home. I was told by your agent that this invalidated my insurance with you.

In addition, I was told that I would have been able to hire a car for 2 days only - so why is there a limit of £2000 in the policy (does a Rolls Royce cost £1000 a day)?

So I hope you can see why I am not very pleased.

On 14-Jul-2017 the supplier responded:

Dear Mr Waldron

Thank you for your feedback regarding your experience when you called Allianz Global Assistance ('AGA') for help in arranging a hire car after your vehicle brokedown.  At the time of writing my response, I am awaiting a call from their Senior Coordinator to determine the events and understand why you were not offered a hire car up to £2,000 as defined in our Policy.

My Current understanding is that AGA required evidence of recovery from Britannia and you should have received a docket from Britannia (when they recovered you) which should have been sufficient for AGA.  AGA have advised that there was a 12 hour break in communication between you.  

I shall continue to look into this matter and ask that you call me on 01483 347355 to furnish me with any additional information whilst I await a response from AGA.

Many thanks

Ian

Dear Mr Waldron

Thank you for bringing this to our attention, we always try and rectify any matter.  This was not the usual standard of Allianz Global Assistance.    I understand that they have spoken to you and have agreed a gesture of goodwill .  They have also confirmed to me that additional training will be given where required.

Should you be willing to use our services again then please do not hesitate to contact me and I shall ensure that you receive a decent discount aswell.

Many thanks

After a 15 min delay trying to get through to the UK call centre the rest of the process worked well. We were back on the road within two hours, with a new battery fitted. Very satisfied.

How can I rate a service I didn't require as I didn't breakdown.


On 12-Jul-2017 the supplier responded:

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback.

But, you have rated us and rated us 3 out of 5 when you do not feel you can rate us?  Some of our customers will call us pre-purchase or send us an email with a query and they may rate us on this service.  Other customers may rate us on price or on ease of purchase. 

We hope that you had a really enjoyable trip and we can assure you that had your vehicle broken down we would have been there to provide you with breakdown assistance.

Many thanks

Provision of the Policy very good. Did not have to use the service so cannot comment how good at responding.

Excellent customer service, organised everything for us from breakdown recovery, overnight hotel, taxi, Eurostar, hire car and repatriation of the broken down car to the UK. Couldn't have asked for more. Truly excellent. I would highly recommend this company.


On 26-Jun-2017 the supplier responded:

Hi Darren, 

Thank you very much for your lovely review of CBC Breakdown Cover. We get a lot of reviews from people who have not been able to fully experience our breakdown cover and therefore cannot comment full on the service so we particularly love it when we receive reviews like yours. We are very pleased to hear we were able to help you when your car broke down and get both you and the car back to the UK. 

We hope you had a lovely trip despite the problems you experienced with your car.

Many thanks
