You’ve thrown yourself in the deep end – driving on the right, unfamiliar road signs… The last thing you need is your vehicle breaking down. With European breakdown cover, you can be assured you’re protected if you’re unlucky enough to have your car break down.
Roadside assistance can be costly if you don’t have cover in place. But with European breakdown cover you’ll get roadside assistance as standard. And if the problem can’t be fixed on the side of the road, the car will be towed to the nearest garage for repair.
It’s worth seeing what each policy covers, as some companies have exclusions on which countries are included. European breakdown cover isn’t typically included on a standard UK policy, but you can sometimes add it as an additional feature.
Before you choose a policy, it’s best to look at what’s included rather than basing your decision on the cheapest deal. A small saving on initial price could cost you a fortune in transport/repair costs if you do break down and you’re not fully covered while abroad. Get a quote to compare features and prices.
