When looking for breakdown cover

Before you take out a breakdown cover policy it is worth shopping around, there are many providers so by comparing the market you can try to insure you get the best deal on cover that fits your specific needs. In addition to price things you may want to consider when deciding on a policy and level of cover could include:


  • Average response time
  • Number of recovery vehicles
  • Customer reviews
  • How many free callouts you get a year
  • Benefits for members such as discounts in different businesses
  • Sign up incentives


You may find that many insurers offer breakdown cover at different price bands, this allows you to tailor your policy to your requirements, what each level is called and features will vary by provider but they may share some similarities:


  • Roadside assistance: usually the most basic package offered by a provider. The roadside assistance package normally offers you with a certain amount of time’s worth of free labour at the roadside, if your vehicle cannot be readily fixed at  the side of the road you will be towed to a nearby garage.


  • Home start: Some provider’s basic roadside package does not include cover for breakdowns that happen close your registered home address, or if your car won’t start when leaving your home. For these incidents you would need a policy that includes home assistance.


  • Onward travel: Onward travel packages vary by provider, but in general are intended to provide you with a means to continue your journey if your vehicle cannot be fixed within a certain time frame, this could include the provision of a hire car, alternative transport costs or nearby accommodation for the night.
