The Importance of Roadside Assistance

Travelling to Europe on a road trip with friends can be a great experience. Not only are you free to explore the landscapes and sights from the comfort of your vehicle, but also have the freedom to be more spontaneous and flexible with your plans. Don't be deterred by the possibility of running into car trouble. Essential Travel's partnership with StartRescue means that you can book affordable European cover and roadside assistance at the click of a button.

Benefits Include:

  • Speedy roadside assistance in 45 countries

Breakdown Coverage In Europe

Car accidents and vehicle breakdown can happen anywhere. The last place you'd want to find yourself in such a situation, however, is when you're on holiday or heading on an important business trip in a foreign country. Avoid the hassle of arranging last-minute roadside assistance while in Europe by booking your breakdown coverage through Essential Travel and StartRescue.
