European Breakdown Cover

When you’re road-tripping across the continent or taking the car on a family holiday to France, you don’t want anything to put the brakes on your time away.

With our European Breakdown Cover our priority is making sure your trip can continue as soon as possible. If you’re unfortunate enough to breakdown in Europe and we can’t fix your car within 4 hours of breakdown assistance, we’ll do all we can to get you back on your journey with a courtesy car, onward rail fare or overnight accommodation.

With your travel plans back in motion, we’ll get your car repaired and returned to you as quickly as possible. We’ll cover the cost of storing your car in Europe and returning it to Ireland, or if you’d rather return to Europe to collect the car yourself we’ll give you up to €500 towards your travel costs

If your vehicle is still being repaired by the time you get back to Ireland, we’ll provide you with a courtesy car at home too.
