Breakdown cover – home start FAQ

Most breakdown cover policies will provide you with roadside assistance if your car breaks down while you’re out and about. However, what if you’re still at home and your car won’t start? Some basic policies don’t offer ‘home start’ cover unless you add it on to your policy. Each policy will have its own limitations on the home start service it provides so it’s important to check the details of your cover carefully.
