For minor issues, our Roadside Assistance will get you back on track as quickly as possible. For more serious problems, our vehicle recovery service will take your vehicle to a garage or to your home if this is nearer. This cover applies if your vehicle cannot be repaired at the scene within one hour of arrival.

Our breakdown insurance cover cars, motorcycles and vans up to 3.5 tonnes in weight and no more than 5.5 metres in length or 2.3 metres wide. We'll even provide assistance to vehicles towing caravans or trailers, as long these are under 7.6m (25 feet) in length.

We cover vehicles up to 15 years old.

Our cover limits you to 6 callouts throughout the year, but don't worry as there's no excess to pay for any of these.

Our breakdown covers the vehicle rather than an individual. So regardless of who the insured driver is, if you're left immobilised due to breakdown, accident, fire or vandalism or theft we'll come to your rescue.

No, we do not charge anything for callouts. Policyholders are eligible for up to 6 breakdown callouts a year.

Your policy becomes active 48-hours after purchase, or at a later date if you'd prefer this.

We define a breakdown as the mechanical or electrical failure; or accidental damage, or damage caused by vandalism, fire, theft or attempted theft; which stops your vehicle moving.

In the event of a breakdown, call our helpline on 0800 999 4206 and confirm your name, registration number, the make/model of your car, your location and the nature of your breakdown. Best of all, this line is open 24/7 all year round, so you can get in contact anytime.

We try to reach all breakdowns within the hour. So as soon as we receive your call, we'll dispatch our nearest operator to your location. With mobile response units dotted all around the UK, we'll get you back in motion in no time at all.
