​European VE​HICLE Breakdown Assistance

Most breakdown assistance only covers you when driving in the UK and will not include overseas driving. When travelling abroad you will need to take out breakdown cover if you are taking your car.

  • 24 hour vehicle and breakdown assistance
  • Legal expenses cover
  • Emergency roadside repairs
  • Replacement vehicle cover


  • Any loss caused as a direct or indirect result of anything you are claiming for, for example loss of earnings, unless it says differently in the policy.
  • You are travelling against any health requirements stipulated by the carrier, their handling agents or any other public transport provider.​

What our cover includes:​


​We need to know certain information as it may affect the terms of the insurance cover we can offer you. You must, to the best of your knowledge, give accurate answers to the questions we ask when you buy your travel insurance policy.
