What is breakdown cover?

AXA Motor Rescue or Breakdown Cover, in it's simplest terms, provides round-the-clock assistance to motorists if their car breaks down or won’t start.


It always seems to happen when you need it least. Your car won't move or, it decides to come to an abrupt halt. The problem could be mechanical or electrical. Or maybe it's just a flat tyre or battery, running out of petrol or you locked your car keys in by mistake!


AXA standalone Breakdown Cover is the perfect answer, as we offer 24 hour peace of mind from only €45.00 a year. One phone call and we will send a trained recovery technician to you (usually within 45 minutes).


We are one of the world's largest Breakdown Cover providers and we know it can be frustrating and even distressing to be going nowhere fast. And if you elderly, a lone female driver or have children with you, and you need help day or night, you need to know you can trust us to come to your aid quickly and without any fuss.
