Car European Breakdown Cover

European Car Breakdown Cover provides you with essential protection from the risk of unexpected roadside repairs and recovery costs and helps you to continue your journey or to get home.

As a UK driver in Europe you are potentially risking thousands of pounds in costs if you are unfortunate enough to suffer a breakdown and need vehicle recovery back to the UK. The very idea of driving in France or any other European country without a backup plan is insane.

What does European Breakdown cover offer?

Emergency roadside assistance, recovery and repatriation, and our 24hr call centres are fully staffed by English-speaking operatives. Most importantly it simply offers cover to help you continue your journey, or get you home.
