Our standard breakdown service. Your vehicle is covered regardless of who is driving it. You can add vehicle based breakdown cover to your existing Aviva car insurance policy; simply log in to our self service facility.

Personal cover

You are covered in any car in which you’re travelling, whether you’re the driver or a passenger.
