What about roadside assistance abroad?

Assistance after an accident is standard coverage on your car insurance policy. More and more insurers want to go a step further by also offering roadside assistance. Not only within the Netherlands, but also breakdown assistance abroad is increasingly offered by insurers.
With roadside assistance in the Netherlands, you are insured if you break down in the Netherlands. This insurance can be interesting if you rarely make long trips outside the Netherlands. If you regularly take your car across the border, you can opt for roadside assistance abroad instead of roadside assistance Netherlands.

When taking out roadside assistance insurance, be careful not to double insure yourself for roadside assistance. In fact, there is often a similar service for new cars from the car brand.
For many years, the roadside assistance was the only provider of roadside assistance. Nowadays, there are several providers, so prices have dropped tremendously.

Car breakdown abroad

Even if your car breaks down abroad, of course you want to be helped as quickly as possible. Allianz Assistance is ideal if you regularly travel by car. You can choose the areas for which you take out roadside assistance insurance. You can take out Allianz Global Assistance roadside assistance separately and it fits with any car insurance policy. Even if you have not taken out your car insurance through www.alpina.nl , it is possible to take out this roadside assistance insurance. You can take out Allianz Global Assistence up to 1 year in the future. The premium will then also only be collected in the future.

On the French motorway, if your car breaks down, you will be helped by salvagers. Only salvagers have the authority to help people. They take you to a garage where they check what the problem is and where the repair takes place. Along French motorways, there are talking points where you can call for help. When you call for help through such a pole, it is immediately clear to the emergency services where you are and you do not have to explain.

The premium amount for the module Car breakdown abroad is logically higher than when you only choose breakdown assistance within the Netherlands. The difference in premium is often relatively small. The insured area with worldwide breakdown assistance is much larger than when you only receive breakdown assistance in the Netherlands. So if you regularly drive your car abroad, worldwide breakdown cover is worth considering.
