Breakdown Cover provides assistance for you and your vehicle following breakdown, accident, vandalism or theft.

Roadside recovery and repairs can be expensive, but with no excess or call-out charge, this cover can help keep costs down. Onward Travel is included as standard so your plans go ahead at no added expense, and with the option to add Home Start and European Breakdown, you really can build your own breakdown cover.

Emergency roadside repairs

With service provided by one of the largest recovery networks in the UK, you'll get roadside assistance as soon as possible if you break down over a mile from home.

Emergency message service

When you call for help, you can choose to pass on a message to your family or friends to let them know you're in safe hands.

Vehicle recovery

What's not covered?

As with all comprehensive policies, there are some limitations to Breakdown Cover. Find out what this policy does not cover here.

Getting you to your destination

If your vehicle cannot be repaired on the same day as the breakdown then you can still carry on your journey. We'll arrange and pay either:

  • to transport your vehicle, passengers, or both to an agreed destination(s); or
  • for you to hire a vehicle to continue your journey; or
  • to transport you and your passengers to a hotel and reimburse the cost of your overnight hotel accommodation.

Why choose Breakdown Cover?

Breakdown Cover will get both you and your car back in motion as fast as possible following a breakdown, an accident, or theft.

It may seem like an unnecessary or expensive luxury, but if you're stranded at the roadside, you and your wallet will be more than thankful to have it. Vehicle towing charges and minimum garage fees can be costly - just one call-out could cost you more than your average yearly Breakdown policy, and that's all before finding an ad-hoc recovery service.

Breakdown cover provides a way to keep the costs and inconvenience to a minimum. With service provided by one of the largest recovery networks in the UK, our friendly operators are always on standby - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, you'll know that help is just a phone call away.

Stay on track with Breakdown Cover starting from just £33 a year.
