Personal Cover


startrescue.co.uk's Personal Cover allows you and up to 3 others in the same household to be covered no matter what vehicle you are travelling in. Your main vehicle must be registered at the time of purchasing cover and the appropriate premium must be paid for the main vehicle. An additional premium is then payable for you and each member of the household who requires personal cover. You can add personal cover when buying a new policy and it can also be added during the policy term.

Important notes concerning Personal Cover:

  • If you have opted and paid for Personal Cover, as well as the vehicle registered under your name being covered for any driver, any other vehicle in which you are travelling will be covered for breakdown and accident cover.
  • You or a registered person under the policy must be with the vehicle at the time of the breakdown and when help arrives.
  • Service will only be provided in accordance with the level of cover you have purchased, as indicated on your policy schedule and in accordance with the Policy Terms. To ensure Personal cover extends to a vehicle in which you intend to travel, please refer to the General Notes section within the Policy Terms for limitations and exclusions.
  • To qualify for Personal Cover, you must register the main vehicle you drive with startrescue.co.uk. You must also pay the appropriate premium for the level of cover required.
  • Personal cover is limited to a maximum of 4 persons in any one household and all vehicles must be registered at the same address.
  • Personal Cover is only available for assistance within the UK. When Personal Four and Five Star cover is purchased for cover in the UK and Europe, cover will only be valid for claims in Europe (see Territorial Limits) on the nominated vehicle declared when cover is purchased. All vehicles nominated for cover in Europe must be aged 10 years old or under at the time of purchase.
