Car breakdown: Generali helps, even when you're on holiday

May 24, 2016. Posted in Produkte

A long-awaited holiday offers time to relax. But an accident or a breakdown can ruin the holiday mood in no time. It's at times like these that Generali's travel information line offers expert help round the clock. And its Vehicle Assistance deals with the costs of towing or, if necessary, recovering a car.

The Griffin family are spending the school holidays camping in the Dordogne. On Sunday morning, their dad, Nigel, gets in the car to drive to the baker, and finds that the engine won't start. Fortunately, he wrote down the number for Generali vehicle assistance. He can phone the travel information line on 0848 800 400 at any time of the day, seven days a week, to get information and help.


Support at home and abroad

Nigel 's insurance finds him the nearest repair shop and covers the costs of towing the car away. While Generali sorts out the problem with the car, Nigel can buy his breakfast rolls without a care in the world. And to make sure settling the repair shop's bill is problem-free, Generali transfers an advance of CHF 2,000 (maximum) towards the repair costs. That way, the family's holiday money is safe.


Off on holiday without a care in the world

It's not just car breakdowns that travel insurance can help with. It covers the costs of cancelled holidays too. And Personal Assistance handles transport and repatriation in such events as accidents and illness. The insurance covers everyone living in that household and any other children travelling with the policyholder.
