Ireland Breakdown Cover
« on: 07 July 2019, 22:59:50 »

Any recommendations? Taking the Zafira to Ireland for a week soon, already have AA cover here through my bank account.

But the AA want an extra 52 just for 1 weeks breakdown cover  :o

Presumably the Republic rather than the North ? There is actually no such country as Ireland. Its an island with two countries on it  :D
Anyhoo, if the Republic probably EU breakdown cover required ? In the North, UK cover should be ok.

Not sure of short term cover , we have it included in each vehicle insurance cover.
I can only suggest you Google the question.
God luck.

If it's what they would charge for France, the 52 is perfectly reasonable imho :y

You are travelling abroad after all  ::)

I don't consider 52 for 1 week's breakdown reasonable at-all, I pay less for entire year for UK and I've paid similar for one years ADAC Europe cover.

Gave up searching and just sorted full European breakdown on my car insurance for small sum of 16 for two months cover. Job done, tempted on a little jaunt into Belgium in August now if we can fit it in.

Nor would I Tunnie!! :o :o

Is the place you are going to close to the border with NI?  If so I am sure a friendly Irishman could tow you over it into the NI, before you call the AA ;)

Galway is a bit of a trek from the border.  ;)

Admiral. I have multi-car with them, the policy expires in September, so they just added on full cover until then. Might work out more, depends when your policy end date is as they don't do fixed cover periods.

Going to Galway, so the hostile state.  :)

ftfy.  :y ;D

It's fine, the Bishop of Galway is my wifes Uncle, so we will be protected  ;D :)

I suspect your 'friendly Irishman' would demand 100 Euros just to attach the towrope!  ;)  ;D
