Unlike other operators who only cover the vehicle and view your caravan or trailer as an accessory to be towed behind the recovery truck, provided you have paid the additional premium we will provide cover if it suffers a breakdown whilst its being towed. We will send a mechanic to fix the caravan or trailer at the roadside and if it can't be mended we will recover the towed vehicle to a local garage so that it can be fixed and provide you with local accommodation whilst you wait.
In the unlikely event that it can't be fixed in time for your original planned return date we will then either pay your expenses to go back and pick up your towed caravan or trailer or a recovery vehicle will repatriate it to your home address in the UK.
Book for immediate cover
Many breakdown providers will not provide assistance in the first 48 to 72 hours after a policy has been issued in order to combat potentially fraudulent claims. This is not ideal if your need is genuine and your on your way abroad. This could then result in you potentially driving around Europe uninsured until this "no claim" period has passed.
If you need to "book and go", our Eurobreakdown policies will provide instant cover provided you have not left the UK and you have not had an incident and intend to claim.
Whenever you book online or via the call centre, the policy certificate, wording and emergency contact details are emailed to you instantly.
Everything that you require for emergency assistance during your trip will be contained within these emailed documents.
No callout limits per trip
The Eurobreakdown policies set no limits on the number of times you can call for assistance during your trip. So if you need help, call and we'll provide whatever assistance is required to get you, your car and your towed vehicle on your way again in the shortest possible timeframe.

Did you know?
We cover towed caravans and trailers up to 8m long
Towed vehicle length
If your caravan or trailer needs recovering from the side of a road and taken to a garage or a safe storage area then it will need to be winched onto a recovery vehicle. In order to do this safely we need to ensure that the overall maximum length of any towed vehicle recovered is 8 metres or less. Anything longer may cause instability and cause a potential accident.
24/7 emergency European breakdown cover support
Following an incident either in the UK or abroad which results in you needing assistance you have unlimited access to an English speaking call centre with multi lingual translation assistance services. Support services are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and the centre is open all year round.
Assistance for your caravan or trailer if it breaks down
The breakdown provider will arrange and pay for labour and call out charges involved in roadside assistance and in making the caravan/trailer fit to be towed or in arranging for the caravan/trailer to be taken to a garage or safe storage area after the event.
