Motor breakdown insurance

The cost of travelling without insurance can be high, not only financially but in terms of disruption to your family holiday. With more than 50 years experience of arranging self-drive family holidays we think we know many of the pitfalls that befall our clients when travelling in Europe so we have selected a reputable insurer who offers a wide range of policy options. The special policies we have agreed with AWP P&C SA are specifically designed to cover the problems encountered on self-drive holidays. 

We strongly recommend that you read the policy details available via the link below, in particular to see what exclusions apply and whether a policy is suitable for you. There is also a short summary of the vehicle breakdown insurance policy at the bottom of this page.
