The beneficiary must contact Roadside Assistance using the contact telephone number listed. If the beneficiary did not call the Assistance Centre for authorisation prior to any intervention, assistance may be refused. Services must be authorised by the Assistance Centre before implementation.
7. Roadside Assistance
Attendance on the spot in case of breakdown will be organised. Roadside repair will be attempted in all cases except where this would go against local regulations (e.g. some highways). Service will be given on roads open to public traffic and at home. Additionally service will be provided off-road for “all-terrain/off-road” models where access is possible and is permissible by law. Service will also be given in following cases: failure of seat belts, broken windscreen wipers, malfunction of legally required external lights. This benefit will not include salvage operations.
After breakdown of the vehicle, where roadside repair is not possible, professional towage of the vehicle with or without trailer to the nearest Authorised Repairer location will be provided. If the breakdown occurs more than 200 kilometres away from the nearest Authorised Repairer location, or, if the nearest Authorised Repairer location is not reachable, the vehicle will be towed to the nearest repair facility authorised by Roadside Assistance. When the breakdown occurs in the town where the vehicle was originally sold, the vehicle should, at the beneficiary's discretion, be towed to the selling outlet for repair.

If in case of a breakdown, roadside repair is not possible and, if after towage of the vehicle to the Authorized Repairer location, the repair cannot be completed within two hours of the arrival at the Authorized Repairer location, the Assistance Centre will approve and arrange for a rental car to be provided during the duration of the repair up to a maximum of 15 calendar days. Fuel costs, insurance deductible are at the expense of the beneficiary. Maximum category D, preference will be given to brands of the GM group.

If in case of a breakdown, roadside repair is not possible and, if after Assistance Centre approved towage of the vehicle to the Authorized Repairer location, the repair cannot be completed during the day of the breakdown, travel for the beneficiaries will be reimbursed. This would entail reimbursement of the cost of First Class train ticket(s), or in the event that travel exceeds six hours, the cost of Economy Class flight ticket(s) for onward travel to the proven original destination or homeward travel, up to a maximum of EURO 613 per beneficiary (VAT included).

12. Combination of Benefits under Items 10 and 11
The benefits listed under Items 10 and 11 may be combined.
