Whether you are renting from us or coming with your own motorcycle or car to Europe we can arrange (and highly recommend) an ADAC Road Assistance Plan for you.
Important notice: Continental Europe is from Ural Mountain (Russia) in the east – Norway/Finland in the north - Italy in the south and Portugal in the west. Also the countries surrounding the Mediterranean Sea.
If you have other friends or family in Germany you can choose to use their address as your return base. We recommend the best address is where you will store/ship your bike. If you don’t have an address in Germany, we’re happy to let you use our address - Hardtstrasse 78, 69124 Heidelberg.
In case you have to use ADAC Road Assistance, you first call them to let them know your situation and what services you need. The toll-free phone number will be on the supplied membership book. Depending on the service required and your location, most services like towing, extraction, emergency fuel are paid by ADAC directly to the service provider where you are. Some things like taxi, hotel, medicine (for Plus holders) you pay the costs first and then you will get money back later from ADAC. Keep all original receipts as they have to be sent in.
Membership is good for 1 year and starts with payment. If you wish to cancel after the year, do so by 3 months prior to the end of that year or your membership is automatically renewed for the following year.
