When you are on the road, whether it is on a self-drive holiday, a weekend getaway to the Cotswolds, or just commuting to work, the last thing you want is for your car to breakdown.
But it can happen. For real peace of mind on the road, arrange breakdown car cover so that in the unfortunate event of a breakdown, you get quick and effective roadside assistance any time of day or night, wherever you need it.
Types of cover
Breakdown insurance can be tailor made to suit your specific needs and there are different types of breakdown cover to choose from. From entry level roadside assistance that covers you when you are more than a 1/4 mile away from home to European breakdown cover that covers you for repairs and roadside assistance when you are driving in Europe. The important thing is to get the right level of cover for you.
The type of breakdown insurance you need also depends on how often you use your car, how old it is, how much mileage it has done, and how well you maintain it. If you your car is new, regularly serviced and not driven much you may only need entry level breakdown insurance. However, if you drive an older vehicle and use it a lot, comprehensive breakdown insurance that covers roadside assistance, recovery, a courtesy car and accommodation would be a safer option.
You can either arrange breakdown car cover as an add-on to your existing car insurance policy or you can purchase it as a separate policy. This can be done quickly and efficiently on the Internet.
