The last thing you want during your vacation is to be stranded on the side of the road in a foreign country, dealing with language barriers and unfamiliar repair shops.

That's where European Breakdown Cover comes in.

This type of insurance add-on may provide assistance and support should your motorhome break down while traveling in Europe.

The benefits of having breakdown cover Europe for motorhome travelers are numerous:

  1. Peace of mind: Knowing that help is just a phone call away in case you experience a breakdown can alleviate stress and allow you to fully enjoy your European adventure.
  2. Financial protection: Breakdowns can be expensive, especially when you're dealing with unfamiliar mechanics, towing fees, and potential accommodation expenses. Breakdown cover Europe may help to cover these costs, preventing a financial burden on your trip*.
  3. Roadside assistance: With a comprehensive breakdown European cover add-on included in your policy, you can take advantage of the included roadside assistance that is available around the clock, no matter where your travels take you.*

*Financial protection and roadside assisstance will be dependent on terms & conditions within your over-arching motorhome insurance policy. European breakdown cover is an optional add-on and must be purchased separately.


Key Features to Look for in EU Breakdown Cover


When looking into EU Breakdown Cover for your motorhome, there are several key features to look for:

  • Wide coverage: Ensure that the policy covers all the European countries you plan to visit. Some policies may only cover specific regions, so it's essential to verify that you'll be protected throughout your entire journey.
  • Roadside assistance: Look for a policy that includes roadside assistance, as this can save you time and money in case of a breakdown. Roadside assistance typically includes towing to the nearest repair shop, on-the-spot repairs, and, if necessary, overnight accommodation.
  • Home start: If your motorhome breaks down before you even leave your home country, a policy with home start can be invaluable. This feature provides assistance in case of a breakdown at or near your home, ensuring that your trip doesn't start off on the wrong foot.
  • Replacement vehicle: In the event that your motorhome cannot be repaired quickly, a policy that offers a replacement vehicle can be a lifesaver. This will allow you to continue your trip while your motorhome is being fixed, minimising the disruption to your adventure.
  • Repatriation: If your motorhome cannot be repaired abroad, some policies will cover the cost of transporting it back to your home country. This can save you a significant amount of money and hassle in the long run.
