European Breakdown Cover Single Trip

European Breakdown Cover Single Trip

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.

Best price

Unfortunately we did have a breakdown but delighted with the service provided.

The service was very poor and made my holiday a total disaster

We added a comment , by Dom:

Good morning, I am so sorry to hear that you had broken down on holiday and that you are unhappy with the service received. I have just tried to call you to discuss this however I have not been able to get through. Please call back at your earliest convenience or submit full details via our contact form and I will look into this for you. Kind regards Rebecca


Brilliant ,really helpful .really good service

Very simple

Easy to purchase with no surprises. Didn't need to use the service thankfully.

In the past 5 years we have booked the travel and breakdown cover via Eurotunnel but this year their only sell the policy if you booked the all package including the train, as we going via Portsmouth to Bilbao with Brittany Ferries we have to look elsewhere and we discover online CBC, excellent service and easy to book, our breakdown cover is with the same breakdown cover as before through Allianz Global, and excellent value, highly recommended, we never needed to call on their services in past 5/6 years but on paper their deserve 5 Stars. We travel every year to Portugal in our 7 Seats vehicle with 3 adults and 3 children, we have to chose a good cover better save than sorry.
