How do I make a claim?
Before you can claim for Parts and Labour, you'll first need to call us for roadside assistance in Europe.

If your vehicle needs repair work in Europe, we'll need to authorise it before the work begins.

Once your vehicle’s back on the road, we can usually cover the costs directly with the garage, so you won't have to pay the bill and claim back later.

To make a claim, your vehicle must:
  • have had a mechanical or electrical breakdown that means it’s not safe to continue driving
  • need the repair or replacement part in order for your trip to start/continue
  • have left the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man
