What is European breakdown cover?
European breakdown cover is just like standard UK breakdown cover, except it will cover you when you drive on the continent.
UK breakdown cover alone won’t be valid when you drive abroad, so you would need to get a specific European breakdown policy to make sure you have cover.
If your car breaks down and you have European breakdown cover, you will be able to call an English-speaking helpline for roadside assistance and either get your vehicle repaired at the scene or get towed to a garage. If you choose a more comprehensive policy, you will also get further cover such as replacement transport.
You can select either personal or vehicle-based cover, depending on whether you want to cover your car or a certain driver. There are two types of European breakdown policies: single trip and annual.
