How to make a claim

To make a claim under your Parts and Labour benefit, you'll first need to call us for roadside assistance.

If your car needs repair work, we'll need to authorise it before the work begins. Once repairs are completed, we can usually cover the costs directly with the garage so you won't have to pay the bill and claim back later.

Please remember

In order for you to make a claim, your car must:

  • have suffered a mechanical or electrical breakdown that prevents it from carrying on safely
  • need the repair or replacement part in order for your trip to start/continue
  • have left the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man

Full details of what's covered can be found in the European breakdown cover Policy documents.
