Single Trip European Breakdown

Emergency breakdown assistance for you and your vehicle whilst in Europe - Single Trips now available for purchase up to 18 months before your trip!

Single Trip European Breakdown

Planning on driving your own car or motorbike while you are on holiday in Europe? What would happen if your vehicle suffered a breakdown whilst you are abroad. Not only is it inconvenient, but the costs could spiral due to this incident. So, it might be a good idea to consider getting breakdown cover for your Europe trip.

With Voyager European Vehicle Breakdown Cover, there are several benefits you can use whilst you are abroad. This includes emergency breakdown assistance and roadside repairs of up to 60 minutes. And if your vehicle cannot be repaired on the roadside, then we will organise to have it towed to a local garage for repairs. Please note our policy does not cover the actual cost of repairs.

You are also covered before your journey begins. If your vehicle cannot be used and repaired in time, as a result of an accident or breakdown, or is stolen within 7 days of departure. Under these circumstances, you can claim up to £1,000 for hiring a car, ensuring you can go on your trip.

If there is an injury or some other occurrence that leads to having no one available to drive the insured vehicle, our Single Trip European Breakdown policy can organise for a qualified driver to get you back home to the UK.

Are there any restrictions on getting an European Breakdown Cover for Single trips?

Yes, there are some restrictions on vehicles that are eligible for Breakdown cover. To be eligible your vehicles must be:

  • a car, motorcycle over 150cc, motorised caravan, minibus, light van, estate car, or 4x4 sport utility vehicle. And they are registered in the United Kingdom.
  • a Caravan and/or trailer
