Things to think about when looking at breakdown cover

Some providers won’t just cover you if your car breaks down. Some can provide you with assistance if you get stuck in the snow or mud, or they can help you if you lose your keys or you put the wrong fuel in car things which could occur in even a brand new car.

As a general rule insurers offer different levels of breakdown cover:

  • Roadside assistance: Often the cheapest level of cover, it will provide you with a certain amount of time of free labour at the roadside. If the vehicle cannot be fixed you will be towed either home or to a nearby garage. Some more comprehensive policies will take you to your intended destination.
  • Home Assistance: If an accident occurs close to your home (often within a quarter to one mile radius) or it won’t start when you’re leaving home a roadside assistance policy will not cover you, for these in stances you would need a package that includes home assistance.
  • Onward Travel: If your car cannot be repaired at the roadside and needs expairs that could take a while at a garage, having cover for onward travel could mean that your provider would provide you with a hire car for a period of time, or would even pay for the costs of you staying overnight in nearby accommodation while repairs are made to your vehicle so you can carry on going.

In addition to considering how comprehensive  you want your cover to be, you should decide if you want a policy taken out on a specific vehicle or for an individual, or set of individuals, so they are covered in any vehicle they are driving.

Whether you drive often or less frequently, having breakdown cover in place is a good idea, as if you do breakdown getting help to come to assistance at the road side can be far more costly if you don’t have a comprehensive level of breakdown cover.

Although what each provider will cover you for varies in general they can help you with many other aspects than just a mechanical fault with your vehicle, for instance they could help if you lock your keys inside the car or if you run out of fuel on your journey.

Car breakdown cover plans come in different forms but generally provide a home option whereby if your car is within a certain mileage from your home the breakdown company will provide assistance.

  • Roadside plans require normally that you are outside a certain distance from home and if the vehicle cannot be repaired then it will be towed to a garage within a certain distance.
  • More comprehensive plans will provide additional services such as transporting you to your intended destination, putting you up for the night in accommodation if necessary, and car hire. It is important that you understand what your breakdown plan is covering you for so there are no unexpected surprises if your vehicle breaks down.

You will also find that to incite customers many breakdown insurance providers offer special discounts and incentives throughout the years, therefore you may want to view what offers are currently available from the different providers before you make your decision.
