The Importance Of Breakdown Cover for Europe

Driving through Europe is the best way to savour this exceptional continent. Most travel insurance policies don't take breakdown coverage into consideration, so if your car breaks down while you are travelling around Europe, it may end up being costly. Now, Essential Travel also offers coverage for those travellers choosing to drive their car to Europe, through StartRescue's short-term European breakdown cover plan.

Benefits Include:

  • Affordable 1 - 31 day packages
  • Includes coverage in 45 countries
  • Great features like Alternative Transport and Key Assist

Covering Your European Trip

Enjoy comfort and ease when you travel to Europe by taking your car instead of flying. Before your trip, take out a convenient European breakdown package and travel with peace of mind and security. Whether travelling to Europe for business or pleasure, for one day or a month, choose from a range of flexible options to suit your travel needs.

Trying to repair your car or arrange vehicle rescue and assistance when in a foreign country can be time-consuming and expensive. By taking out a European breakdown cover package, you can avoid unnecessary costs and rest assured that should your car run into trouble, help is on its way.
