Honda Roadside Assistance

There when you need us

Your Honda is entitled to the benefits of Hondacare Roadside Assistance, which is available 24 hours a day, every day of the year. All of Honda cars are covered by the same benefits throughout their warranty period, i.e. 3 years from the date of the vehicle’s first registration.

With HondaCare Roadside Assistance, your car is entitled to the benefits whether you are driving or if someone else is driving your car with your permission.

And even if you sell your Honda while you have Hondacare Roadside Assistance, the new owner will benefit from the remaining period of cover.

The three types of Hondacare Assistance

HondaCare Home Assistance

If your car breaks down at home, Honda will send an appointed agent to your doorstep. If the car can’t be repaired, Honda will take it to the nearest Authorised Honda Dealer. 

HondaCare Roadside Assistance

If your car breaks down at the roadside, Honda will get help to you wherever you are in Ireland. Where the car can’t be repaired in a reasonable period of time you can use the Honda Recovery Assistance Services. 

HondaCare Recovery Assistance

If we can’t fix your car at the roadside, Honda will arrange for you and up to four passengers and your vehicle to be transported to the nearest Honda Dealer. Even if you are towing a trailer or caravan, this can also be recovered, although there are certain weight and size restrictions.

If Honda can’t fix your car at the roadside they may, at their discretion, choose to provide one of the following:

  • A replacement hire car equivalent to category B, for up to 3 days. This would be subject to the terms and conditions of the hire
  • Public transport for you and up to four passengers
  • Transport to and accommodation at the hotel of our choice for you and up to four passengers (on a bed and breakfast basis)

Hire cars are subject to availability and to the supplier’s terms and conditions. Please note: Replacement vehicles cannot be supplied with a tow bar and therefore your caravan or trailer will, if eligible, be recovered under HondaCare Recovery Assistance with your vehicle.
