Breakdown cover is not a qualifying product; however, compare prices now and find the right cover for you.
Whether it’s a business-critical asset or simply your pride and joy, cover your van against breakdowns.
Aside from missed deliveries, lost work opportunities and getting behind on your schedule, van breakdowns come with all the same problems as a car or motorbike breakdown – you’re stranded without transport and you’ve got to find a way to get yourself on the move or your vehicle home.. Fortunately, it’s simple to compare quotes online and insure your van against breakdowns in a few clicks.
As with car breakdown cover, you can choose from a range of cover levels, from basic roadside help to onward journey cover that gets you where you need to go. When weighing up your options, think about how far you travel and how often you use your van.
Whichever type of cover you choose, you’ll have the option to cover yourself (personal cover) or your vehicle. Some policies also offer multiple vehicle cover, which could include a combination of cars, vans and motorbikes at the same address. To help you select your options, take a look at our handy table:
More than one vehicle
If you don’t have breakdown cover and things go wrong, you might need to call around to find a willing friend or local garage to collect you. This could involve paying the garage a fee and you might have to find alternative transport to continue your journey.
Look in your log book and find the section on vehicle category or vehicle type approval, this will give you a letter and a number. If it is M1 it's a car. If it is N1 or N2 it's a van. If you have any doubts or questions double-check with the breakdown provider.
Policy limitations and exclusions apply to all types of cover, and they vary by provider. If your van’s a big one, check whether vehicles over a certain height and weight are covered. Most providers will help change a wheel and help you with misfuelling issues, but check to see if it is included or excluded. If you use your van for towing a trailer, then check that is covered too.
