Roadside

The most basic policy, Roadside Assistance whether from the AA, the RAC or Green Flag, does exactly what it says it does – gets someone out to see your car wherever you breakdown in the UK (unless you’re at home or within 1/4 a mile of home – then you need Home Start cover – but they won’t leave you there if they can’t!

With roadside assistance cover, if they can’t mend the problem (and 80% of the time they can) then you’ll get a tow to the nearest approved garage. You usually get abtou one hours free labour time with roadside assistance, but it is a very basic cover just to see you okay when you are out and about.
