Breakdown Repair Insurance - How it works

Insurance for breakdown repairs


For just £59.95… and an excess per claim of £25.00, you can protect your vehicle and your pocket against faults to the engine, fuel system, clutch, gearbox, steering, brakes, electrics and more for a full year.


It’s so easy… if we can’t repair your vehicle, we will recover it to a specialist who will discuss the repairs with our claims service. All you need to do is to pay your £25.00 excess and any costs which aren’t covered, or are above the £500.00 (including VAT) claim limit. You can even claim up to five times a year. Breakdown repair insurance could not be much easier!

  • Claim through the startrescue.co.uk Breakdown Repair Insurance Service, details are in your policy wording.
