If you run out of gasoline, our assistance service will provide an emergency gas delivery (up to 10 litres), free of charge, to get you to the nearest service station.
Our on-road experts will jump-start your vehicle's battery. If the vehicle fails to start, it will be towed, subject to the terms and conditions of this service.
