Breakdown Cover and Euro Breakdown Cover FAQs

Q. I understand that Tesco Bank is no longer offering Breakdown Cover to new customers. What does this mean for my existing cover?

A. Your Tesco Breakdown policy is already underwritten and administered by the RAC. They'll continue to provide your cover until it is due for renewal. There are no changes to your existing policy at this time. Tesco Bank will continue to offer Breakdown Cover where it is linked to a Tesco Car Insurance policy.

Q. I am an existing customer with Breakdown linked to my Tesco Car Insurance policy, what does this mean for me?

A. Tesco Bank will continue to provide Breakdown Cover where it is linked to a Tesco Car Insurance policy. This cover is unaffected.
