Our Breakdown Cover

All our breakdown products cover a wide range of incidents including mechanical fault and breakdowns from accident damage, running out of fuel and even accidentally using the wrong type of fuel. We also cover a wide range of vehicles up to 16 years (13 years old on European Single Trip).


Our basic UK cover includes Roadside Assistance and Local Recovery and you can add Home Start and National Recovery. These policies are available to cover people or to cover vehicles, and you can purchase a dual vehicle or joint person policy.


We have an annual European policy which covers multiple trips up to 60 days (with a maximum of 31 days in any single trip) on vehicles up to 9 years old. Our annual European also policy includes full UK cover. We also have Single Trip European Breakdown Cover which can cover any period up to 91 days on vehicles up to 13 years old.


You can use our quote system to build a policy to suit your needs and your budget.


Our standard vehicle policies give you unlimited callouts per year. If you are looking for peace of mind without the expense you can save up to 40% by restricting your callouts to one per year (UK Vehicle Cover policies).


We also offer Van Breakdown Cover, Motorcycle Breakdown Cover and breakdown cover policies for fleets of vehicles.


You do not have to pay the recovery costs up front and recover them from us. We arrange the recovery for you and settle all bills directly with our recovery agents.
