Short trip breakdown cover
Get short trip breakdown cover with AXA Assistance (UK) Ltd
You can drive safe in the knowledge that AXA will be there if you break down, and they’ve won Best Breakdown Cover Provider at the Personal Finance Awards every year since 2014.
Before you buy breakdown cover with us, make sure you haven’t got it elsewhere, as part of a bank account or through a car purchase.
If you do, compare the features and benefits of your existing policy with the ones we can offer you. You should also check the cancellation terms of your existing policy – you might have to pay to cancel it.
This will make sure you’re not losing money or paying for two policies when you can only claim on one.
Best Breakdown Cover Provider at the Personal Finance Awards for the last 7 years.
Please be aware that the vehicle must carry a serviceable spare tyre and wheel for the vehicle and any caravan or trailer attached, including the means to release the wheel from your vehicle. We will not cover any services or costs, including recovery to a garage, incurred as a result of you failing to do so. This condition does not apply if the vehicle was not designed to carry a spare wheel, in which case you will need to carry the appropriate aerosol repair kit.
* AXA will choose a suitable recovery solution depending on your individual circumstances.
** In some cases it may be necessary for customers to pay for overnight accommodation and claim it back, if AXA are unable to book and pay for it on their behalf.
