BMW BREAKDOWN ASSISTANCE.
In expert hands around the clock: enjoy maximum driving pleasure, safety and convenience with your BMW. Our BMW Breakdown and Accident Assistance makes sure you’re also well taken care of in emergencies. Just contact the hotline of BMW Breakdown Assistance if you need on-the-spot roadside assistance: we’ll arrange for roadside assistance through selected cooperation partners.
Local Breakdown Assistance
In most cases we will already be able to help you over the phone. If you need help on site, we will immediately organise BMW roadside assistance for you by selected specialist operators. Note: roadside assistance on site is limited solely to restoring your vehicle’s roadworthiness.
Help with punctures and problems on the road
We provide reliable assistance in the event of a puncture. In the event of minor mishaps, e.g. if your keys have been locked inside the car or lost or if the wrong type of fuel has been added, we’ll be pleased to organise assistance. Please note that we do not assume any responsibility for the cost of roadside assistance on site, or of mobility services above and beyond the scope outlined above.
Towing service to the nearest BMW Service Partner
If a problem cannot be rectified on the spot, we will organise towing your BMW to the nearest BMW Service Partner.
We will cover the costs of a replacement vehicle until completion of the repairs, for a maximum of three working days plus the weekend in your home country, and a maximum of five working days plus the weekend abroad. Please note that the availability of replacement vehicles may vary. The general terms and conditions of commercial car rental services may impose geographical restrictions for the use of their vehicles.
Other services to ensure seamless mobility
In addition to the services outlined above and to keep you fully mobile, we cover the costs of the following services up to an overall maximum of EUR 500 per breakdown.
If the circumstances require, we will also meet the costs of your return travel home by train or air – up to the maximum amount stated above.
If you incur costs for the collection of your vehicle, we will cover these up to the maximum amount stated above. If necessary, we will organise for the vehicle to be returned home on your behalf, subject to the repair taking more than three working days from the time of the vehicle’s arrival in the workshop to its anticipated time of completion. In this case, your place of residence must also be more than 100 kilometres from the breakdown site. Repatriating vehicles from abroad may take up to around ten days (consolidated transport).*
* Note on this service: the costs of multiple separate services provided for your seamless mobility can only be reimbursed up to an overall maximum amount of EUR 500 EUR per breakdown.
Reimbursement of costs
As a fundamental principle, only costs of a nature and scope that have been agreed with BMW Breakdown Assistance can be covered. Generally speaking, we take care of the costs of all BMW Breakdown Assistance services directly on your behalf. If, exceptionally, you need to pay for services, we will reimburse you immediately. To do that, we need the original invoices for the services used (for example vehicle recovery companies) together with a copy of the repair invoice, and the completed notice of breakdown.

Albania, Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Macedonia, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia and Montenegro, Sweden, Switzerland, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain (incl.

Comprehensive mobility services for two years
Included in this offer are comprehensive mobility services in accordance with the applicable BMW Breakdown Assistance terms and conditions of guarantee for a period of two years on all BMW new vehicles first registered on 1 January 2011 or later.
Renewing the mobility guarantee
After the 24-month guarantee period has expired, you can then decide if you wish to renew the BMW Breakdown Assistance mobility guarantee for your BMW. When you have your scheduled engine oil service carried out by an authorised BMW workshop, the BMW Breakdown Assistance mobility guarantee is renewed automatically for a further 24 months up until a maximum of the end of the tenth year after initial registration. The date when the next engine oil service is due is determined by your on-board computer, according to your individual driving style. The entry in your vehicle’s Service Booklet or the service invoice serves as evidence.
Even if you have not had one of your engine oil services carried out by an authorised BMW workshop, there is nothing to prevent you from renewing your mobility guarantee. If you then arrange for the next engine oil service to be carried out by an authorised BMW workshop, the BMW Breakdown Assistance mobility guarantee will be automatically renewed for a further 24 months, but with the maximum being up until ten years after the initial registration. Please note: the BMW Breakdown Assistance mobility guarantee expires in all cases at the end of the tenth year after the date on which your vehicle was first registered.
Mobility guarantee exclusions
The service entitlements under a BMW Breakdown Assistance mobility guarantee are not forfeited if other service and repair work – including any additional oil services required – are carried out by non-authorised workshops. However, services from the BMW Breakdown Assistance mobility guarantee are excluded if the vehicle’s loss of mobility is a result of failure to observe the inspection and service intervals specified by the manufacturer or if inspections, service work and other repairs by a non-authorised workshop do not comply with the manufacturer’s requirements.
BMW ACCIDENT ASSISTANCE.
The fast, expert support from BMW Accident Assistance gives you as much relief as possible when it counts – and ensures that you and your BMW are excellently looked after, even in exceptional circumstances.
When you call BMW Accident Assistance, we will organise tow away service.
To help us organise our assistance for you in the most efficient way, please state your name, your BMW model as per the vehicle registration document and your current position when calling. For more information about the BMW Accident Hotline, ask your BMW Service Partner on +356 23264000.

Professional accident repair
Supreme quality, optimum value retention – technological advances mean that repairing BMW vehicles is becoming an increasingly sophisticated affair. Only your BMW Service Partner will be able to fully meet this demand. Highly qualified specialists restore your BMW technically and visually to its original condition and ensure it meets all crash test specifications. Original BMW Parts are used exclusively during the repair of your vehicle. If your BMW needs paintwork repairs, this is done using environmentally friendly paint from the BMW ColorSystem.
Rescue Information for occupants
Especially after a serious car accident, time is of the essence when the rescue services need to get injured persons out of the vehicle. That is why they need to be given full information as quickly as possible about the car in question. Where are its batteries? Where are the airbags? At what points can a vehicle can be cut open quickly and safely? That is why we came up with the idea of BMW Rescue Information for the emergency services, BMW Rescue Charts, and a special sticker for the windscreen.
BMW Rescue Charts
The BMW Rescue Charts supply the emergency services with important information that helps them gain swift, safe access to the occupants. You can print out the BMW Rescue Charts as a PDF file and keep it behind the driver’s sun visor. The rescue charts are in colour, to make them easier to follow. We therefore recommend printing out the rescue chart for your vehicle using a colour printer.
Legal disclaimer: The content of the rescue data sheets is intended exclusively for trained members of the rescue services, for the technical rescue of persons.
Sticker for the windscreen
Your BMW Partner can also supply the “Rescue chart inside vehicle” sticker. So that rescuers know at a glance that there is a rescue chart in the car, the sticker needs to be affixed at the bottom of the windscreen, on the driver’s side. Your BMW Partner will be glad to advise you.
