Motoring Assistance

Don't let your car let you down...

While motoring on the continent can be a wonderful, free experience, it could become quite the opposite if your car lets you down. 

If you do not already have breakdown cover for mainland Europe, we are able to offer a range of packages.

Motoring Assistance Cover

Important Notes for Motoring Assistance Cover

This insurance operates on the basis that you will have had your vehicle properly serviced and maintained in accordance with the manufacturer's specifications, especially when preparing it for a trip abroad. In particular we will expect you to have replaced parts which a pre-trip inspection has indicated may be reaching the end of their normal life, for example the friction linings in clutch or brakes.

Don't forget that replacing such items abroad will disrupt your trip, may not be practicable within your travel timescale, and could cost you significantly more than in the UK. And - have your vehicle checked in plenty of time before your departure date so that your garage can fix any problem they discover.

Please note that if you book your insurance within 10 days of departure there is no cover provided under Section 1, Cover Prior to Departure. Keep proof of regular servicing in your vehicle, with your handbook or travel documents.

If you call us for assistance and our mechanic reports to us that it is evident you have not maintained your vehicle in a state fit to undertake the trip and return you home safely, you will have to pay all the costs arising from our intervention.

The insurance does not replace the need for vehicle insurance. You must contact your own vehicle insurance company to ensure you have sufficient cover to take your vehicle out of the country. The vehicle age limit for Motoring Assistance Cover is 9 years unless the additional premium is paid for vehicles up to the age of 14.
