It must be under 16 years old since first registration.

  3. No benefit shall be payable unless you contact us via the emergency telephone numbers provided. You must not seek to contact any agent or repairer direct.
  4. You are responsible for the safety of your vehicle and its contents and, unless incapacitated, or by arrangement with us or our agent, you must be in attendance at your vehicle at the estimated time we advise that assistance can be expected.
  5. Your policy number must be quoted when calling for assistance and the relevant identification produced on the demand of the repairer, recovery specialist or other nominated agent of Inter Partner Assistance SA.

  10. You shall carry a serviceable spare tyre and wheel for your vehicle and any attached caravan or trailer. Please note this exclusion does not apply if your vehicle is not designed to carry a spare wheel.
  11. We reserve the right to nominate a suitable garage equipped to undertake repair, at your expense, rather than recover an immobilised vehicle, where effective repairs can be completed within 8 Hours.

  19. We cannot guarantee that hire cars will always be available and we are not responsible if they are not available. We will do our best to arrange a vehicle of equivalent size but no guarantee can be given that there will be tow bars, bike racks, roof boxes, or other accessories included. Hire cars are provided subject to you meeting the conditions of the hirer. In most parts of Europe, hire cars are not permitted to cross national frontiers or to be brought back to Ireland.
  20. The parties to this insurance are you and us and any person or company who is not party to this insurance policy has no right under the Contracts (Right of Third Parties) Act 1999 to enforce any term of this insurance policy but this does not affect any right or remedy of a third party that exist or is available apart from that Act.
  21. Any reduction in cover will only be allowed at renewal of the cover.
  22. We may cancel this policy by giving you fourteen days notice by recorded delivery to your last known Irish address.
