Mr Clive

I've used Start Rescue for several years in the past but have recently had a motor insuance policy tyhat inluded breakdown cover in the UK, and as a result of Covid and Brexit we did not travelled abroad for several years so I had no need of European cover. However I have now changed my motor insurer and have therefore once again taken out Start Rescue's policy on line including European cover - all very easy and efficient. Well Done!

Was easy to complete the online application. The cost also reasonable. I liked that before clucking the submit button, a notice comes up saying check with your bank account first, as you may already have cover.

Car and classic

When the words car and classic are used in the same sentence, its meaning is about much more than getting from A to B.

For those who maintain classic cars, going that extra mile in order to find that elusive vehicle part is not a chore at all, but part of the enjoyment of maintaining such vehicles.

Whether it's the sound the engine makes, or the unique automotive styling of a bygone decade, classic cars offer that little bit of magic that modern cars might sometimes lack.

 

What is classic car breakdown cover?

Breakdown cover for older cars, classic car breakdown cover is an insurance policy that will provide you with roadside assistance and recovery if your vehicle endures a mechanical failure.

If you predominantly drive your classic car for leisure and have another car for everyday use, you may find personal breakdown cover better suits your needs,

Alternatively, it is also possible to add multiple vehicles to your Start Rescue breakdown policy.

Classic car shows

Classic car shows are the stuff of dreams for some, where owners can not only show off their own sparkling classic car, but absorb themselves in dozens, possibly hundreds of other old classic cars.

Whether displaying your car or attending to admire the many other classic, vintage and heritage vehicles, a classic car breakdown cover policy with nationwide cover will offer you reassurance that, should something happen to your car on the way to or from a show, and your car cannot be repaired at the roadside, we will arrange for you and the passengers to be recovered to your home or if you would prefer and it is closer your original destination.
