AXA Motor Claims - Making sure you're covered
  • Car & Key Rescue*

    24 hour breakdown assistance in Ireland or the UK. We'll get you going following mechanical problems, a flat battery or even just a puncture. And if you can't complete your journey, we'll arrange local towing and help to get you home or make alternative arrangements.

    We also offer lost, damaged or stolen car keys insurance. We give you up to €1500 toward replacing keys or fobs as well as up to €40 per day for up to three days car hire if you don't have a spare set. Claims won't affect your no-claims-discount.
