Breakdown Cover

Breakdown Cover

We all rely on our cars and other vehicles to get us where we want to, and it can be extremely frustrating, not to mention inconvenient if they break down, causing us to be late for work, miss a vital appointment, or spoil our holiday. It's bad enough if the car breaks down in the middle of town, but it can be far worse if it leaves us alone and stranded on a remote country road.

Fortunately, help is available from a huge range of breakdown insurance companies, who can offer a number of breakdown services, often at very reasonable prices. A few, such as the AA and RAC provide roadside assistance using their own dedicated patrols, whilst the others (including Green Flag) make use of a national network of independent recovery agents and garages.

In this section, you'll find information on how to choose the right breakdown policy, including an in-depth explanation on each of the different levels of breakdown cover offered. There's also a handy comparison of some of the most popular breakdown service providers.
