General notes relating to Europe

If assistance is required on a French Auto Route or on certain Auto Routes in Continental Europe, you must use the official SOS boxes at the side of the road to arrange initial assistance or recovery. As these roads are privatised, neither Allianz Global assistance nor any other assistance organisation is allowed to assist you on these roads. Once the covered vehicle has been recovered from the Auto Route, you should contact us and we will make any further arrangements for you and inform you how to reclaim costs incurred for recovery from the Auto Route.
