New breakdown service ‘easyAssist’ launches in Ireland

easytrip research reveals three out of five drivers don’t have breakdown cover
easyAssist most competitive breakdown service in market at only €3.99 per month

10 April 2017 – Mobility solutions specialist, easytrip, Ireland’s only electronic parking and tolling tag provider, has launched a new breakdown assistance service in Ireland called easyAssist.  The new breakdown recovery and assistance service is available from only €3.99* per month to Irish motorists.

Recent easytrip research revealed that three out of five motorists don’t have breakdown cover for their vehicle and often rely on their vehicle insurance policy to cover it. However, motor insurance premiums have increased by over 70%** since 2013, and many insurers have also reduced benefits on motor policies with some polices not covering breakdown assistance at all.

Partnering with Irelands leading breakdown assistance and recovery specialists nationwide, easyAssist offers motorists with cars and small vans, expert assistance from trained professionals who resolve 80% of breakdowns on the spot. The easyAssist service from easytrip provides customers with assistance on all major breakdown scenarios nationwide including: battery charge; punctures; refuelling; wheel change; home start assist; and continuation of journey.

Commenting at the launch, CEO of easytrip Ireland, Colin Delaney said: “Our customers have been asking for a product like this for a long time now, one that’s at an affordable price, and we are delighted to be able to deliver this great service. Teaming up directly with breakdown specialists nationwide means we can offer easyAssist for 50%*** cheaper than other breakdown recovery services in the Irish market. The best part is you don’t have to be an easytrip customer to sign up to this service, its open to all drivers.”

“Remember if you do get a breakdown to follow these simple steps: move your car into the hard shoulder; put on your hazard lights; place your warning triangle on the ground to alert oncoming traffic and call your breakdown service,” said Colin.

For more information or to sign up for the easyAssist service call 1890 67 67 68 or log onto www.easytrip.ie/easyAssist/

Easytrip customers save on toll fees, avoid incurring fines on the M50 motorway and have access to all express lanes at toll plazas nationwide as well as exclusive cash-free access at Ireland’s major car parks across Belfast, Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Waterford and other motoring services.
