European Car Breakdown Assistance

To travel abroad, customers will need to take out ‘European Vehicle Assistance Cover’ to ensure that they are fully covered in the event that they breakdown or have any motor related difficulties whilst outside of the UK, available on our Newcastle to Amsterdam route
