What is Breakdown Cover?

Breakdown cover is a service  which ensures that if your vehicle suffers a mechanical failure, you and your passengers will not be stranded at the roadside. When a breakdown is reported, startrescue.co.uk will send out a Vehicle Recovery Operator to repair your vehicle at the roadside, or if this is not possible, the vehicle will be towed to your home or to a local garage, dependent on your circumstances and policy cover level. Policies are available in five different levels which  cover you at home, nationally and throughout Europe - it's important to read through each policy and decide which one is best for you.

FCA Regulated
