Comprehensive Car Breakdown Cover

Comprehensive breakdown cover is a more expensive breakdown cover option but it does have its advantages. What’s included does vary between companies but they often cover extra aspects which would normally result in additional charges. For example you can include parts and labour charges in your policy and never worry about any bills for a replacement part during the repairs. Another option is to get any hire car, overnight accommodation or public transport charges included so that you can continue your journey or wait comfortably while your vehicle is repaired. Different companies offer different options and extras.
