Car Breakdown Insurance.

Hi

Just done mine with Green Flag.

It went up from 81.47 to 104.16.

Rang them up and got it for 87.23



Well worth a ring.

Re: Car Breakdown Insurance.

Mine's with RAC.
Can't remember how much it is offhand, but I paid a bit extra to cover breakdown from home as well as out on the road.

Re: Car Breakdown Insurance.

What does breakdown insurance cover?

I have never heard of such a thing - I am a member of the NRMA which covers towing, car hire etc if you do breakdown but never heard of insurance for breakdowns. My car has just finished its five year guarantee period.

Re: Car Breakdown Insurance.

Miy break down cover is currently with my car insurance , I might not bother next year I drive so little and when I do it's within a few miles of home.

I don't have 'hope start' if I have a problem at home I ring my garage and they send someone out. This has happened twice in the last year and I am hoping the problem has been fixed. I am lucky in having a very good local garage which values its customers. They had to move premises a couple of years ago to farther away from town which made them even more eager to retain customers.

I'm with Green Flag too, it covers both myself and Rosemary in any vehicle we happen to be travelling in, regardless of ownership. We pay around ten quid a month.

Re: Car Breakdown Insurance.

I'm with green flag too, covers everything from home start...I can't remember what I pay yearly , but if it goes up that much, I'll be phoning them too. I was with another company...24/7 I think it was called, the coil spring broke while I was driving, so I phoned them, I know you're not supposed to drive if you know it's broken...it could puncture the tyre...they refused to come out, saying it was neither a mechanical or electrical fault...they said it was an accident, I phoned the local garage who told me to phone green flag, who came out and towed my car to the garage...it cost me 25 and the guy from green flag told me to phone 24/7 and ask for the money back...which I did ,after 3 or 4 emails to their head office...eventually I got a cheque for 25, I've been with green flag ever since..
