Breakdown Cover

Everyday in the UK there are around 20,000 breakdown’s. The most common causes being, flat tyres, flat batteries and engine trouble the recovery services report. Some of the common causes of flat batteries include, using the car only for short journeys, leaving the headlights switched on overnight, electronic equipment e.g. sat nav or CD players, corroded, loose or damp connections on the battery. There are a number of checks that drivers can carry out on their cars to lessen the chances of a breakdown.
To help prevent breakdowns check the tyres and battery on a regular basis. However, not everyone can find the time or have the ability to carry out these checks. Good breakdown cover can provide that peace of mind if your vehicle breaks down on the roadside. With breakdown cover you can wait for good professional help to arrive without having to try to fix the problem yourself. There are many different breakdown cover packages to choose from. From the basic roadside package to comprehensive packages.
The basic roadside cover hope to repair the car at the side of the road, in most cases this is usually possible, or to tow your vehicle to the nearest garage or your home. This type of breakdown cover may limit the number of callouts that you are allowed to make in the year and the age of the car may be limited too. Some providers may cover available 365 days per year, 24 hours a day and not charge you for a call out. It might be possible to find Student Car Insurance which may well include breakdown cover.
More comprehensive breakdown cover include the benefits of roadside assistance as well as allowing the driver and passengers to continue their journey, if the repair can’t be made on the same day, through use of a hire car or relief driver. Some insurance companies may have no limits to the number of call outs per year and may also include overnight accommodation in the event of a breakdown.

    I personally went for a number of years without any breakdown cover. When I did break down I had to pay quite a lot to have the car towed home. However it still wasn’t as much as I would have paid for having the service for all those years and not using it at all.

    Learning to drive was one of the hardest things and yet the most rewarding thing I have ever done. I’m so glad I had a good instructor to teach me those life skills.
