Breakdown Cover 

from £44 per year or £4.11 per month*

Breakdown Cover for complete peace of mind

If you rely on your car for work, the school run, or just day-to-day needs, being without a car due to a breakdown can lead to chaos and leave you stranded.

What’s included in our Breakdown Cover

We offer 3 levels of Breakdown Cover to suit your needs and get your car back up and running.

Depending on when you bought your policy with us, your Breakdown Cover will either be provided by the RAC or 1ST CENTRAL Rescue.
