Breakdown cover

Provided by Green Flag

UK breakdown cover 

You can choose to add UK and European breakdown cover to your car insurance policy as an optional extra. The following is provided with all levels of cover:

Let someone know you're safe – phone or text friends, family or colleagues if you breakdown.

Recover your caravan or trailer – transport for a caravan or trailer being towed during a breakdown to ensure it gets to your destination too.

Aim to repair your car at the roadside - cover labour costs for roadside assistance.

Give you money back - if help doesn't reach you within one hour, you can claim £10 for the inconvenience.

Provide you with a no call out discount - if you don't use your breakdown cover in the year.

Protect you, not just your car - personal cover provides assistance, whether you're in your own car or someone else's. (The car must be privately UK-registered, travelling in the UK and less than 16 years old).

Four cover levels:
