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.

Really good to have friendly and helpful staff to assist in the event of problems. Broke down in southern France on day of return. You arranged recovery to a garage and when it was not repairable quickly, taxis and flights, and later recovery of car to UK. Obviously disappointed car was not repaired, but your friendly and helpful staff were much appreciated, as was the service provided. Many thanks.

Payed for a certificate as going abroad for the week, this was done weeks in advance. Never turned up until after the trip. May have said how long it would be until you would receive the document


On 09-Jan-2018 the supplier responded:

Thank you for your feedback.  We had not heard this before and we would have addressed this sooner had we known.  You should have received your documents sooner, however your cover was always valid and you would have been recovered in the event of a breakdown.  The Christmas post is likely to have affected the delivery of your certificate.

I have refunded the fee for posting the documents already and should you wish to purchase from us again please contact us and we will provide you with a discount code, which we hope goes someway.


We hope that you otherwise had a lovely trip over the Christmas period.

Many thanks
