European Vehicle Breakdown Cover From Able2Travel

Able2Travel European Vehicle Breakdown Cover

Taking your vehicle on holiday to Europe – Do you need Breakdown Cover?

If you are planning on taking your vehicle or motorbike on your trip to Europe and it breaks down, costs can quickly spiral out of control. Not only can the cost of transporting your vehicle back to the UK cost thousands of pounds if it breaks down without EU Breakdown cover, you may also incur the cost of additional travel or hotel costs whilst you are sorting it all out. This is where our European Vehicle Breakdown Insurance cover and the 24/7 English speaking helpline and roadside service can help.

Our European Vehicle Breakdown cover also provides protection from the risk of unexpected roadside repairs and recovery costs that will help get you back on the road so that you can continue enjoying your trip or return home.
