The levels of breakdown cover include roadside assistance, roadside recovery, home start and onward journey. Your cover can also include local, national or Europe* depending on how far you plan to travel.
1. Roadside Assistance: The most basic cover. A recovery vehicle will attempt to fix your motorbike at the side of the road. If this is not possible you will be towed to the nearest garage
2. Nationwide Recovery: Almost the same as roadside assistance, however you get to choose the destination you’re taken to (anywhere in the UK)
3. Home Start: With this type of policy, if your motorbike won’t start then a recovery vehicle will come to your home, or within a quarter mile radius of it (this distance varies by provider)
4. Onward Journey: This cover could offer you reimbursement for the costs of temporary accommodation if you breakdown - a hotel room, for example. It could also cover you for the hire of a replacement vehicle, or medical assistance
*If you do choose cover for Europe, remember to check the details of your policy so you know which countries are covered and the situations that might or might not be included.
