What's covered

Our breakdown assistance means that we pay if you have to deal with any of these problems;

  • Mechanical breakdown
  • Fire
  • Theft or attempted theft
  • Malicious damage
  • Punctures that need help to fix or require a wheel to be replaced
  • Lost keys, stolen keys and keys broken in the lock or locked in a car.

The benefits

Because we always go that extra mile, we make sure that you get these great benefits a standard with your Aviva breakdown cover.

Roadside and driveway assistance

Flat tyre on the motorway? Dead battery in your driveway? No problem! We'll send a repairer to help you. If your car can be repaired immediately we'll provide up to one hours' free labour. Just make sure you're with the car when repairer arrives.


Towing

If you can't drive your car because of a mechanical breakdown, we'll cover the cost of towing it to the nearest repairer or your own garage - whichever is closer. If you've had an accident for which you're insured, we'll collect your car and bring it to our nearest repairer.


Finishing the Journey

Republic of Ireland
If our repairer can't get your car running again at the scene and you're more than 30 kilometres from home, we've got you covered. We'll pay to get you and your passengers to your intended destination. Or we'll give you a replacement car for up to 48 hours and transport you back to collect your own car when it's fixed.

Alternatively, we'll cover bed and breakfast accommodation while you and your passengers are waiting for your car to be repaired (up to €35 per person, and €150 in total)

England, Scotland and Wales
We'll give you a replacement car for up to 48 hours (up to a total cost of £100). If your car can't be repaired before your departure date, we'll pay to have it towed to the port in England, Scotland or Wales you are leaving from (up to a total cost of £250).


Replacement car

If your car is stolen and not recovered within 24 hours, we'll give you a replacement for up to five days or until your car is found, whichever is sooner. You'll need to report the theft to the Gardaí and us right away.
