As long as you are at least a quarter of a mile from your home, you’ll be covered for an RAC mechanic to come out and try and get your car started. If not, your vehicle will be towed for up to 10 miles and you’ll be covered for a taxi journey up to 20 miles.
Roadside is included, plus cover for you and up to 8 people to be taken to one destination in the UK.
Roadside assistance and cover if you breakdown at home, or within a quarter of a mile from where you live.
Overnight accommodation, getting home by alternative transport or a replacement car whilst your own car is being fixed for up to 2 days.
Breakdown cover on the way, or whilst abroad with Roadside Repair and Recovery. Alternative accommodation or travel.
