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.

Our Reviews

Feedback for Breakdown Cover has been compiled from 31 customer reviews:

Booking the cover was easy. The car didn’t break down so I didn’t need to call anyone out and therefore can’t comment on that. It is very expensive to purchase breakdown cover for older cars. This was probably the cheapest around when I booked it.

Easy to set up. Didn't need to call on the cover fortunately so can't comment any further.

Quick and easy to arrange for the period I wanted whilst abroad.

Can’t comment on service as didn’t break down (fortunately!!)

Very good service. Rescue arrived on time and took vehicle to local garage with no issues.

I took this European breakdown cover which is best thing a could of done as we broke down in Spain after contacting CBC they took control and made sure everything was in place to get us home safe cannot thank the persons involved enough from the minute we broke down They had everything in place to get the car home and most importantly to get us home

Service on offer was excellent, fortunately I did not have to use them

Can't compare as it wasn't used. Cover was just in case scenario.

Hi Anthony, Thanks for leaving us a review. Sorry to see you feel it necessary to give us one star. I hope we'll be able to change our mind on this in the future. Thanks again, Dom

The customer added a comment , by Anthony Ashton:

The one star is not to be taken as a bad review,its just that I have not used you before so therefore couldn't compare it to any service you may have provided in the past.

i thought that the price was reasonable for the cover applied for on the policy

very competative

fast and efficient

Easy to book, great value and luckily I didn't need to call them during my trip!

quick, efficient and cheaper than most

Service on the phone was perfect, advisors were kept calling me back to give me updates, the mechanic was also very patient, he wasted no time- with quick expertise we were on the road 15 minutes after his arrival. The whole process took no longer than 2,5 hours.

Excellent service!

Quick and easy.

Good cover at reasonable price

A very good service.

No problem
