Flexible cover

Short trip, and annual cover available

Breaking down abroad without cover can be expensive – recovery back to the UK alone could cost you around £1,000.† But with AA European Breakdown Cover you can contact us to arrange help 24 hours a day. So you can relax – that's what holidays are for.
