What breakdown cover
big_wasa - 26/6/18 at 08:18 AM

I know it's been asked before but i am looking for current recommendations. I am looking for driver cover with recovery.

Green flag will only cover vehicles under 16 years old , the Indy is on an age related plate.

In theory I have cover through my bank but I've never looked at the small print or put it to the test.

Cheers

I've got RAC roadside recovery, for me and the missus.

Paid with tesco vouchers 35.

Never had to use it YET, so don't know how it will be!

I use GEM Assist. Personal cover for me and the Mrs on any car. Have used for the MK a couple of times of the years, no issue. No car age stipulation. Only downside (if it is for you) is no European cover, so have to buy a separate contract for Le Mans trips.

I've been with Britannia for over 30 years but I think I may change! Britannia have quite a long list of excluded vehicles whereas autoaidbeakdown have a shorter list!!
"*UK vehicles only. Private cars and motorcycles. Vans, pick-ups and motorised caravans will only be covered if they do not exceed 3.5tonnes gross vehicle weight. Excluded vehicles are minibuses, vehicles used as taxis for private or public hire or vans used for business use."

It does also say any vehicle that has been raced, rallied at any point in your owner ship. never gov, honest.

I have autoaid as well, moved to them after and horrendous dealing with the AA..

Not the breakdown guy as he was mint and towed me to where I was going but having to ring customer services and deal with the shite from them put me right off....

Autoaid for me too with no problems for kit car. The only downside being that you have to be 'married' to your 'other half' to have them included on the same policy. Just being in a stable relationship (nearly 20 years in our case) don't cut it. Roll on civil partnership legislation for heterosexual couples!

Yep, I had to provide a copy of the marriage certificate as despite us being married, she didn't take my surname.

But they are top notch. My wife lost a wheel in a pothole, and they were all over it. Regular updates to both of us (I was in Leeds at the time while she was in Wolverhampton), very quick pickup on a flat bed, delivery to our trusted garage, follow up calls to make sure we were ok, the works. I can't recommend them enough.
