EA History

  • History as a forerunner: the assistance pioneer since 1963
  • 50 years of assistance experience
  • Worldwide partner for covering risks, accidents, travel and everyday life
  • Spirit of innovation with services enhanced by new technology 
In 1963 Europ Assistance came into being by inventing a totally pioneering concept: assistance. 
To the sole financial guarantee of insurance, Europ Assistance added an assistance offer covering risks, accidents, travel and everyday life, reflecting changes in society. From then on, everyone could live, drive around, travel or set out in peace of mind, knowing that they would be supported and assisted. 
Over time, Europ Assistance has changed its concept of assistance, transcending all borders, by anticipating changes in society. Today, on the strength of nearly 50 years' experience, and inspired by the same spirit of innovation, the Group is broadening its offer by inventing Care Services. As well as handling exceptional situations, it now provides protection and personalized assistance services, to help you in times of need.
