What assistance will you receive?

You are eligible for assistance if your car becomes stranded due to a breakdown, accident, fire, theft or act of vandalism that renders the vehicle inoperative.

In Belgium

Is your vehicle covered and has it broken down by the road or at home? Alphabet Assistance will send a vehicle recovery technician to repair your car on-site, if possible. If it cannot be repaired on the spot, Alphabet Assistance will have the car towed. In that case we will provide you with a replacement car.

Abroad

Has your car become immobilised at the roadside or at your place of residence in a foreign country due to an accident or mechanical defect? Alphabet will organise and pay for a breakdown technician to attempt to repair your car on-site or a carrier to tow the covered vehicle to the nearest dealer for the make. Alphabet will offer the most suitable solution based on the time required for the repair and whether you were on your way there, at your destination or heading home again. 

Replacement car 

You may make use of a replacement vehicle free of charge for a maximum of five consecutive days while your car is under repair (unless otherwise specified in the contract). Do you require a replacement vehicle for a longer period? If so, be sure to observe the regulations regarding maintenance and repair. If you have an Alphabet Fuel Pass, you can continue to use it for the replacement car.

Always report the return of your replacement car. To do so, contact our Short Term Rent department at str@alphabet.be.
