  • Whether a policy includes cover for specialist recovery equipment if you get stuck in mud or snow
  • Benefits for members like discounts in different businesses
  • Incentives for new members to join
  • How many recovery vehicles a provider has
  • Customer reviews

Levels of cover

Providers of breakdown cover commonly offer policies at different price bands , so you only need to pay for the level of cover that you feel fits your needs.  You may find that each provider offers slightly different features for their levels of cover however they may include:


Roadside cover

Usually the most minimal level of cover and subsequent packages often include this level as standard, it will provide you with roadside assistance for breakdowns that occur over a certain distance from your registered home address. If your vehicle cannot be repaired at the roadside then it will also provide you with a tow to a nearby garage.



Home Cover

Provides cover for breakdowns that happen at or near your home in addition to roadside cover.




While a standard package may include recovery of your vehicle to a nearby garage if your car can’t be fixed at the roadside, having a national recovery option means in this situation you have the choice of being transported along with your and passengers to any one location anywhere in the UK.



Onward Travel

Onward travel packages are designed to present policy makers with alternatives means to continue their journey, depending on provider this could mean the provision of a hire car for a limited period of time, costs for other forms of transport such as train fare or being put up in a nearby hotel for the night.
