With Zurich comprehensive car insurance if your car breaks down or you have a roadside emergency, it is reassuring to know that help is at hand 24 hours a day - no matter where you are in Ireland.

Comprehensive policies

If you have Comprehensive Cover, and your car is immobilised more than 2km from your home address in Ireland as a result of a mechanical or electrical failure, loss of keys or driver error and cannot be driven, we will provide 30 minutes roadside assistance free of charge. If unsuccessful, we will organise and pay the cost of bringing your car to the nearest garage or to any garage of your choice if it is nearer. Additional benefits come into effect if the breakdown occurs within Ireland and is more than 50km from your home. 


Third Party Fire & Theft

When deciding if Third Party Fire & Theft is the right car insurance for you, firstly you should consider what is and isn’t covered and what the implications will be if you are involved in an accident. Although Breakdown Assistance isn’t covered under Third Party Fire & Theft policies, the above service is available at competitively negotiated rates.
