FAQ - Vehicles

 

What vehicles do you cover on this European breakdown cover policy?

This European breakdown cover with 24/7 assistance provided by Allianz Global Assistance will provide cover for either a car, 4x4, SUV, MPV, light van, camper van, motorhome, or motorcycle privately registered in the United Kingdom. This may include a hired vehicle, leased vehicle and company cars provided you have the hirer’s permission to take the car abroad.

 

I am towing a caravan, what is the max length?

The Allianz Global Assistance European Breakdown Cover policy defines that a caravan or trailer should be of a standard make that meets The Motor Vehicles (Construction and Use) Regulations 1978. The caravan or trailer should be fitted with a standard 50mm tow ball and should not exceed (including any load carried) the following gross vehicle weight and dimensions: 3,500kg in weight, 8m in length, 3m in height and 2.3m in width.

 

I'm driving a motorhome, what are the maximum dimensions?

Our Allianz Global Assistance European Breakdown Cover policies define that a vehicle must not exceed (including any load carried) the following gross vehicle weight and dimensions; 3,500kg in weight, 7m in length, 3m in height and 2.3m in width.

If you have a motorhome longer than 7m but less than 8m we can cover you but you must call 0330 880 5049 to book because we have to ensure that your vehicle is within our height, width and weight limits.

 

Why do you have age bands for the vehicles on this European Breakdown Cover policy?

As vehicles get older they are more liable to encounter problems and so the Underwriters have imposed age restrictions on the policy.

Our single trip European breakdown policies provide breakdown cover for vehicles up to and including the age of 14, but they must be under 15 years old at the start date of the Policy.
