2-Star cover is the same as the 1-Star package, but includes recovery of your vehicle, you and your passengers to your home in the UK or to your original destination (whichever is nearest).


3-Star is our most popular cover level and is the same as a 2-Star, but includes our home recovery service, Home Assist, covering your vehicle at your registered home address, or within a one mile radius.


4-Star cover offers all the benefits of 2-Star cover but includes cover for Europe as well as the UK. It does not include recovery within a one-mile radius of your home.


5-Star cover includes all the features of 1, 2, 3 and 4 Star cover policies, but with the addition of Theft and Vandalism cover, so you can request that your immobilised vehicle is recovered to your home or a garage. 5-Star also includes illness cover, so if the driver falls ill and no-one else can take over from them, startrescue.co.uk can provide someone to drive the car to its destination. If necessary, transport for the original driver will also be provided.
