Is it possible to get repatriation cover while in Europe?

We are taking delivery of a brand new VW campervan and planning on taking it to Europe in September.

The VW warranty provides breakdown cover in Europe for 3 years but I don't believe it extends to repatriation of the vehicle in the event of an accident and I don't believe repatriation would be covered by a standard holiday insurance policy.

Is there a product available to cover this potential gap in cover?

We would suggest reviewing the terms and conditions for your warranty and your insurance policy to determine what would happen in the event of an accident abroad where the vehicle cannot be repaired. If your insurance policy requires additional cover for driving in Europe we would expect this to be either included as standard or available as an add on.
