What level of Courier Breakdown cover do you need?

Roadside and At Home

If we can't fix your vehicle at roadside, we'll tow you up to 10 miles to your destination of choice. With Roadside and At Home cover, we'll also cover your commercial vehicles if they break down within a mile of your registered address.

Roadside, Recovery and At Home

As well as all of the above, adding recovery to your breakdown insurance means that if we can't fix your vehicles at roadside, we'll take you and up to 8 passengers to your chosen destination anywhere in the UK.

Fleet vehicle replacement with Onward Travel

Add Onward Travel and if we can't fix the vehicle at the roadside, we’ll provide a replacement vehicle, or alternative transport costs or hotel accommodation through our Onward Travel Option. Unlike our competitors, we’ll replace a car for a car and a van for a van. So your business can keep moving, with minimal disruption. Take a look at our Van Breakdown Cover for more information.

European Breakdown cover

When you choose European Cover, your commercial vehicles will be covered in 51 countries plus their offshore islands across mainland Europe. If you break down, your vehicle will be fixed at the roadside, towed to the nearest garage for repair or returned to your home country. English-speaking incident managers are on call 24/7, and we’ll also help cover accommodation costs so you can continue with your journey.
