Electric Car Insurance

With our AA- financial strength and our experience insuring electric cars, we bring you superior electric car insurance protection, specialist electric car breakdown assistance and an excellent claims service.

Specialist breakdown assistance

  • Zurich offers our electric car customers market-leading, specialist, 24 hour roadside breakdown assistance.

  • Re-charging: your electric 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.
  • Specialist repairer: your electric 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.
