Practical tips and advice to help you find the right breakdown cover

Breakdown cover is a practical way to ensure that your car stays on the road - here we give you all the information you need to find the right breakdown insurance product to suit your needs.

It is a good idea to obtain breakdown cover if you regularly travel by car. It is a practical way to ensure that you get a fast and efficient service should you have a breakdown and can give you peace of mind whether you're just travelling to the local shops or driving long-distance on the continent.

There are a growing number of car breakdown cover providers from the more well known RAC, the AA and Green Flag breakdown to the more recent online start ups like Drive 24-7, and the range of products they offer are ostensibly similar with mostly standardised features and benefits. However, there are a number of, often subtle, differences between policies that can affect the price you pay and the cover you receive so that's why we have supplied you with a breakdown cover comparison table to differentiate between these similarities easily. This breakdown recovery guide is provided to help you choose between policies and providers so that you can ensure that you acquire decent breakdown cover that suits your needs.
