Roadside assistance, nationwide recovery, home start and onward journey. Whether you need local, national or European cover will depend on how far you plan to travel.
1. Roadside Assistance: If your vehicle can’t be fixed at the side of the road by a mechanic, then you’ll be towed to the nearest garage. This is typically the most basic level of cover
2. Nationwide Recovery: Nearly the same as roadside assistance, but you get to choose the destination you’re taken to (as long as it’s in the UK)
3. Home Start: This covers you if a breakdown happens within a quarter mile radius of your home. This distance varies by provider, so read your policy terms carefully!
4. Onward Journey: The hire of a replacement vehicle, temporary accommodation and medical assistance can all be covered by annual breakdown insurance
*If you select cover for Europe, remember to check with care the details of your policy. Each country could have different situations which might or might not be included in the cover.
