At Zurich we strive to provide market-leading products that recognise the additional needs an electric or plug-in hybrid car owner has. If you own an electric or plug-in hybrid car, you can avail of specialist breakdown assistance, along with an excellent claims service and peace of mind that you’re protected in the event that something happens.

Specialist breakdown assistance:

  • We offer our electric car customers specialist, 24-hour roadside breakdown assistance for electric and plug-in hybrid cars. This addresses the issue of ‘range anxiety’, which is the fear that some electric car owners may have, that they will run out of charge mid-journey.
  • Re-charging: your car will be taken for free to the nearest public charge point, or your home charge point (whichever is the nearer), if you run out of electrical charge.
  • Your car will be taken to the nearest specialist repairer in the event of a breakdown due to a mechanical fault.

Replacement car:

  • In the event of an accident, we will provide a free replacement car (an electric car where possible) for up to 10 days.

Charging cable:

  • We provide cover for loss or damage to your electric car charging cable for up to €400, for one charging cable per period of insurance.
