Why Do I Need Breakdown Cover?
Many people can’t see the point in spending money to protect against something they hope will never happen; but many cars are unreliable. According to the UK breakdown companies their services are required around 20,000 times every day. Remember, cheap breakdown cover doesn’t just help you with engine faults; it’ll also help with flat tyres, dead batteries and other problems.
Many of the big companies make a point of their repair success rate, which is usually in the 80-90% area, this means that many of the more common problems will be easily and quickly repaired and you’ll be on your way in no time at all.
And let’s not forget safety. The side of the road is not a good place to be stuck; there are countless horror stories of broken down vehicles being struck by passing traffic. If you’re broken down you want to minimise the time spent at the side of the road, especially if you have children - breakdown cover will ensure your problem is sorted quickly, usually between 30-40 minutes, or you’ll be towed away to a repair garage.
Breakdown cover gives you access to experienced mechanics on 24/7 patrols who will usually be able to fix your car at the roadside, failing that they’ll ensure that you, your passengers and your vehicle are delivered safely to a garage.
