Anyone who has ever broken down will know that breakdown cover is a wise purchase. Especially in the wet and cold winter months. We have done the hard work to compare the most popular breakdown cover products availaible in the UK.
Breakdown cover is usually offered at varying levels.
Roadside Assistance - This is usually the most basic package of breakdown cover. You get breakdown cover on the road, not within 1/4 of a mile from home, and if the car is not repairable at the roadside then you will be towed to a garage or home if within 10 miles.
National Recovery - This cover usually extends from Roadside Assistance to allow for full transportation of you and your vehicle nationally.
At Home - Cover will allow callouts should you break down at home.
Onward Travel - Extends national cover and can provide accommodation, hire car or travel expenses if you have broken down a distance from home.
