European Breakdown Cover for Campervans
There is nothing like taking to the open roads for a driving holiday in Europe in your campervan. Driving along the roads in beautiful, unfamiliar countryside – and then your campervan breaks down. Do you have breakdown insurance that allows you to phone someone to come and help? Do you have access to multilingual staff who can assist you with continuing your holiday or making sure you return home to the UK if your campervan is unable to be fixed before the end of your driving holiday?
Our policies for European campervan breakdown cover ensure that your driving holiday is not ruined in the event your campervan breaks down abroad, or even if it is stolen or broken into. Eurobreakdown has both single trip and annual multiple trip policies that provide cover for a whole host of these types of unfortunate events, and with the support of our assistance partner, you can be sure any issues with your campervan will be dealt with swiftly and efficiently, leaving you no time to worry and more time getting your holiday back on track.

| This company was superb in helping my wife and I when we broke down outside of Madrid. The office staff are super and made a stressful situation a bit calmer for us. As my title says I really can't thank this company enough, This has to be the best Breakdown Service from a Company that I have ever had. Thank you very much I can't recommend you enough.

What we offer
Three levels of European breakdown cover for camper vans and options for single trip and annual multitrip policies. Our single trip policies for breakdown cover in Europe can cover a maximum duration of 180 days, but if you are going to make two or more trips to Europe in a calendar year then you must consider the possibility of getting an annual multitrip policy which will cover an unlimited number of trips with a maximum duration of 31 days per trip (with options for 62 and 93).
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 you're 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 and your campervan on your way again in the shortest possible timeframe.
Area of European breakdown cover
You are covered in the direct journeys between your home and your international departure point from the UK and on into Europe until such time as you complete your journey back to your home address in the UK.
For the purpose of defining the area of cover, Europe is defined with 3 areas:
Area 1: Travel only to the following: Belgium, France, Luxembourg, Netherlands, United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland.
Area 2: Andorra, Austria, Canaries, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Gibraltar, Greece, lceland, ltaly, Liechtenstein, Madeira, Monaco, Norway, Portugal, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Vatican City.
Area 3: (Rest of Europe): Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia.
Max camper van occupants
Our policies cover up to 8 passengers including the driver. Assistance will be provided to each individual for onward travel to their destination including the option for car hire or local accommodation costs if they lose the use of their campervan for more than 8 hours.
Max camper van dimensions
If your campervan needs recovering from the side of a road and to be 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 dimensions of any campervan recovered are: 8 metres or less in length, 3 metres or less in height, 2.3 metres or less in width and 3,500 kg or less in weight. Anything bigger may cause instability and cause a potential accident.
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.
