Car breakdown

In essence, car breakdown cover from the AA, the RAC or Green Flag is simply a ‘catch-all’ term for an breakdown insurance policy that you buy from any of the recovery services to ensure you can get your car repaired should it fail to start!

Car breakdown cover comes in a range of levels – from your most basic (no real frills – but enough to get you sorted from the roadside) through to Comprehensive car breakdown cover (ensures your car gets back to your home while you can continue your holiday!).

So comparing car breakdown cover from leading companies like the AA and RAC is the key to you getting the right deal for you. Check our table below of featured car breakdown cover providers – most of whom you will have heard of no doubt.
