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.

Hi, I did book European breakdown cover with CBC but unfortunately I had to cancel my trip but When i rang CBC to tell them this I received a full refund which is an example of excellent customer service. I used CBC last year for my trip and will certainly use them again and also recommend them.

Hi, thank you for the great review of CBC Breakdown Cover.  We understand that people sometimes have to cancel trips and we try, wherever possible, to deal with this as reasonably as possible without fuss.

Easy to use website and compare the different options

++

I didnt have to use the service (a short trip to belgium and france). Purchased thru MSE - very reasonable. Was underwritten by Allianz - while comparing I noticed other offerings underwritten by Allianz and providing the same cover - so went for the cheapest - obviously.
Didnt have to use the service - but I have no reason to believe it would have been fine.


On 31-Oct-2017 the supplier responded:

Thank you for your kind review of CBC European Breakdown Cover and, as yoou confirmed, the option you chose was underwritten by Allianz Global Assistance ('AGA').  We're glad to hear that you found us to be the cheapest and hope that you had a great trip.

Many thanks

Getting the insurance was no problem, but as I have thankfully had no need to make a claim, I have no experience of how good that might be.

-

It was easy to book and luckily I didn't need to use the service so difficult to say whether it was good or not


On 16-Oct-2017 the supplier responded:

Thank you for taking the time to leave your review of CBC Breakdown Cover, we completely understand your comments and, if you haven't claimed, it isn't always easy to rate us.

We hope that you had agreat trip.

Many thanks

Good experience as far as I was concerned, although luckily I didn't have to claim so I can't comment on that aspect.

++

Easy to do, good value and peace of mind

+

Really cheap, very easy to purchase but fortunately I didn't have to use them so can't comment on their actual service!

++

Purchasing cover was easy and fortunately I didn't need to use the cover during my trip so I can't comment any further.
