Vehicle Breakdown Cover is typically our most affordable level of cover and provides protection for the vehicle, rather than the driver. This type of breakdown cover is ideal for

  • If you only travel frequently in one vehicle – this can be more cost-effective than other levels of cover
  • If you’re part of a family or household that shares one vehicle between multiple people

Personal Breakdown Cover protects a named person instead of a specific car. The policy holder is covered if the car they’re driving breaks down but also if they’re a passenger in another car, driven by someone else. This type of policy is perfect for:

  • People who regularly drive more than one vehicle
  • People that frequently travel as passengers in someone else’s vehicle

Hurry, this offer ends Wednesday 25th May, 7am.


Deals on family breakdown cover

Family breakdown cover is a cost-effective way to cover multiple people you live with on a single policy. It costs a minimum of £4 a month to add an extra person to your breakdown policy, depending on the level of cover you have.

  • You can cover up to 5 people on the same policy (as long as everyone lives at the same address)
  • Just select ‘personal cover’ and add the number of people you need 
  • Everyone will be covered as drivers or passengers in any vehicle, including cars, motorbikes and vans.

Alternatively, you can also cover multiple vehicles on one policy if you choose vehicle cover. This means each vehicle is covered no matter who is driving when it breaks down. You can cover up to 3 vehicles registered to the same address.
