Levels of cover

Although levels of cover can vary by provider, as well as how comprehensive each level is. As a general rule breakdown cover can be bought in different bands depending on what possible eventualities the policy holder would like to be covered for, but they can include:

  • Roadside assistance: The most basic level of cover, when you breakdown a mechanic will be sent in response to your call try and repair your vehicle at the roadside. If this cannot be done some policies may arrange for your car to be recovered to either a nearby garage or your home.
  • Home Assistance: If your car doesn’t start in the morning, or you breakdown within a quarter of a mile from your home, then roadside assistance may not cover you, in which case you may need a home assistance policy.
  • Onward Travel: If you breakdown but wish to continue your journey an onward travel policy can help you do so, what each provider offers for onward travels can differ greatly so it is worth carefully reading each policy however options can include; putting you up for the night in accommodation while your vehicle is repaired, or providing you with an alternative means of transportation such as a hire car.
  • European Cover: Many providers offer as an optional extra or separate product European cover, which can help you get assistance while driving  within Europe but outside of the UK.
Breakdown Offers

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.
