startrescue.co.uk was possibly the first breakdown company to offer an app that allows you to report your breakdown without having to make a telephone call.
Once you have reviewed and confirmed the information provided in the above steps, a Recovery Operator will be allocated to you in as little as 20 seconds. You will then receive a notification to tell you who is coming out to you and how long they’ll be.
Our recent enhancement allows you to let us know whether the allocated Recovery Operator has arrived or not. If not a rescue co-ordinator will obtain an update and pass this information to you as soon as possible.
We have also just launched a new service that will give you real-time information on your assistance after a Recovery Operator has been allocated. You'll be able to track the Recovery Operator on a map that displays your location and the most recent location of the Recovery Operator. When the Recovery Operator is en route, on-scene or complete a message will be displayed on the Job Monitor. To take advantage of this new feature, enable your push notifications and you'll receive a notification as soon as tracking data becomes available.
Get help the easy way with the ‘Start Rescue’ app. Please visit the links below to download the self-service platform to your iPhone or Android device.
If you’re not yet a startrescue.co.uk customer, don’t worry you can still use our app. We will provide you with a quotation for our Pay on Use assistance.

Simply laid out website, easy to navigate. Good price and different types of cover clearly explained. Haven't called them out yet so I can't review that side of the business.
Very competitive price and service with a variety of choices.
Start usually provide a very competitive quote for my (2) multi-car policy. I have only had to call on them once, and unfortunately, as I was in a very rural location they had difficulty finding me, and the rescue vehicle that was sent at first was too wide for the lane. However they were very helpful on the phone and I was able to get back on the road after a bit of a delay. Only this stopped me giving 5*.
Excellent service and communication.
