Breakdown cover is a type of cover that provides help if your vehicle breaks down when you're on the road. There are different levels of cover but most companies offer roadside assistance as standard. Roadside assistance means that a mechanic will assist you if your vehicle stops working a quarter of a mile away from your home.
If your vehicle cannot be fixed at the roadside, you won’t be stranded with breakdown cover. Your car will usually be recovered and towed to a garage for further repairs. This type of cover is sometimes included as standard with car insurance but is often an optional extra to add on to your existing policy. Comparing breakdown cover is a great idea to get the best deal for your circumstances.
