Fewer repatriation during half-term break

Published on 15/02/2016

VAB that also offers breakdown cover also noted a fall of 9% in instances of its customers requiring help due to breakdowns or accidents involving their cars.

The number of skiing accidents was up 4% compared with last year’s spring half-term break. However, this can be explained by the fact that more Belgians choose skiing holidays this year than was the case in the spring half-term break in 2015.

Thanks to the good quality of the snow, most of the injuries weren’t serious and VAB repatriated 13% fewer holiday-makers than it did during the spring half-term break in 2015. 44% of accidents on the slopes happened in France and 39% in Austria.

There were also 16% fewer car accidents involving VAB customers. Of those requiring breakdown assistance 21% had engine problems, 20% flat tyres and 18% battery and starter motor issues. / Expatica
