What is Rescue & Recovery breakdown cover?

Rescue cover means that if your vehicle breaks down more than a quarter of a mile from your home address we will send a patrol out to repair it at the roadside. If it cannot be repaired within a reasonable time, or the patrolman feels the repair is unwise we will transport your vehicle to a destination of your choice within 10 miles or to a nearby garage.

Transport for you and up to seven passengers to that chosen destination will also be provided.

Recovery is the same as Rescue but if your vehicle cannot be repaired we will transport your vehicle, you and up to seven passengers to your home address or any single address in the UK.

Recovery is also provided if you are taken ill and can't continue your journey and none of the passengers can legally drive the vehicle.
