Why take out European breakdown cover?

Many people choose to spend their holidays driving around Europe and with so many different places to explore and sights to see on the continent, it's not hard to see why.

And while it may appear as easy as jumping into your car and heading over the English Channel, there are some things to take into account when preparing for an adventure in France, Italy or Spain, including European breakdown cover.

You may have a comprehensive insurance policy for your vehicle in the UK, but this will not provide assistance following damage, breakdown or theft when you're abroad.

So, if you don't want to ruin your holiday and be stuck overseas without a car, take a look at your options for European breakdown insurance at Voyager Insurance.

What does European car insurance cover?

By taking out breakdown cover for your trip to the continent, you'll have the reassurance that should your vehicle suffer any problems while you're on holiday, it can be taken to a repairer for attention.

However, Voyager European breakdown cover protects against other costs as well. You're likely to find that expenses can quickly add up if you are stuck without a vehicle on a driving tour of Europe, including your return journey home and additional travel fees.

Taking out a policy will mean you can rest at ease should your vehicle break down abroad, as you will be able to call someone out to help repair your car.

And if you cannot drive your motor as it is taking time to be fixed, you'll be able to claim back up to £2,000 to hire another vehicle. This means that you can continue exploring different attractions and your holiday won't be ruined!

Should the only driver of the car also suffer any injury, the group will ensure that you arrive back home safely by providing someone to complete the journey in your vehicle.

How to sign up to European breakdown cover

Taking out breakdown cover for your European trip couldn't be easier, and you can find a range of options from as little as £3 a day – a small price to pay for potentially saving your trip from being spoiled.
