Are there any exclusions?

Youi won't cover any unregistered or unroadworthy vehicles or trailers, nor any vehicles used for business or commercial purposes. You also won't be covered for:

  • Attempted repairs or the dismantling of your car.
  • Damage from fire, accident, theft, flood or malicious damage.
  • Financial loss or legal liability connected with a breakdown or accident.
  • Use of the vehicle by an unlicensed or disqualified driver.
  • Use of the vehicle in motorsports or competitions.

Youi can also reject roadside assistance or towing that is considered unnecessary and excessive.

Am I protected in an accident?

No. Roadside assistance only provides protection against roadside breakdowns or issues with operation (flat tyres, etc). To protect yourself against accidents and damage, you will need third party property cover or higher, depending on your needs. Happily, roadside assistance is included with comprehensive car and motorcycle cover from Youi.

Whether your car won't start, a flat tyre has forced you off the road or the journey was a little longer than your fuel tank expected, you can contact Youi whenever you need on 131 117 to access over-the-phone assistance and to get help out to where you are.
