Car breakdown

Add our optional car breakdown cover when you get a quote for your car insurance and choose from four comprehensive levels of breakdown cover, so you only pay for exactly what you need.

Breakdown cover features & benefits

If the vehicle cannot be driven as a result of a breakdown, your insurer will arrange for the service as shown below.

If you misfuel your car we'll arrange and pay for your vehicle to be drained and flushed of the contaminated fuel, and refuel up to ten litres of the correct fuel.
In case of a breakdown, your insurance policy will cover your car wherever you drive within the UK.
To get you back on the road quickly, we'll arrange service at the scene of the breakdown. If it can't be fixed, we'll arrange for your car to be taken to a local garage.
In the event of a breakdown, any attached caravan or small trailer used for private purposes will be entitled to the same service as your car.
If your car can't be repaired at the roadside or at a local garage the same day, we'll arrange for one of the following: the vehicle, you and your passengers to be taken to your destination or home; accommodation for one night; or hire of another vehicle.
If you are unable to drive due to injury or illness acquired during the journey, we'll arrange for a driver to finish the journey or return you and your car to where the journey started.
We'll arrange to pay call-out fees and labour charges needed to start your car in the event of a breakdown at or within one quarter mile of your home.
Our European cover gives you the benefit of our Roadside, Recovery and Homestart levels of cover while travelling abroad with your car in the event of a breakdown.
