Roadside Breakdown cover for your next European holiday

It’s never too early to plan the next holiday

If like us, you feel that summer is only just starting yet the kids are back to school already and the first Christmas ads are just starting to show on television, it maybe isn’t such a bad idea to start turning our attentions to next years summer holidays.

With those dark, cold days ahead, the expensive ‘C word’ in the middle and this years trips now fading into the distant memory, many like to book the next holiday well in advance for a number of sensible reasons. Why?

This last year, 2022, saw a bit of a return to normality after 2 years of Covid, lock-downs and politicians having wild parties under the guise of ‘work’. Staycations in 2022 actually dipped back a little after record numbers of Brits decided to holiday at home in the U.K in 2021, though issues regarding Brexit and the resultant queueing at borders and ferry companies cancelling routes still made travelling tricky at times. But it was possible in 2022 and as we look ahead to 2023 we expect to see an even larger return to holiday makers packing up their car and hopping on a ferry or train to visit the continent.

French and Spanish holidays in particular make for affordable breaks for families with an almost guarantee in place for some nice weather. But if you are driving in a country that you don’t know as well as your own, on the opposite side of the road and you can’t speak their language, would you really want your partner and 3 kids packed in to the family estate with roof box and enough sweets to cater for Halloween and Easter for the whole town, without being safe in the knowledge that you have some Roadside Breakdown cover in place for if the worst should happen?

Our policies cover you from just a single day to up to a year and we have a multitude of options to choose from in terms of cover too. Even your journey to and from the port until you arrive home is covered under a policy from us, and yes, we do speak ‘their language’, whatever that language might be.

So, don’t park those happy memories of summer 2022 just yet, and start thinking about 2023. Many ferry companies offer early bird offers for the following season, and most campsites, gites and B&B’s have already opened their books for next season, so by being amongst the first to book, you may even get your preferred choice of week or two if you are lucky!) and accommodation.
