Breakdown Cover Comparison Guide

Breakdown cover is something we believe all car drivers should have, it gives you peace of mind that if something was to go wrong with your car, someone is coming out to help. With MotorEasy breakdown cover you are in safe hands, whether you need Local Recovery or full Europewide Cover we fix 80% of all breakdowns at the roadside getting you back on your way as quickly as possible. 


Why our Breakdown Cover is different?

MotorEasy has four levels of breakdown cover ranging from Local Recovery, which will get you 10 miles from the breakdown site, to Europewide Recovery and Home Assist which will mean you are assisted across 45 European countries as well as on your driveway. All levels of cover include assistance for alternative transport, emergency overnight accommodation, driver illness or injury cover, key recovery, misfuelling and a message service.

We'll come and rescue you from the roadside 24/7, up to 6 times a year with no excess or call out charges. Our network of over 600 recovery operators is ready to come and either repair your car at the roadside or get your car to the nearest suitable garage.

Plus, if you're protected by a MotorEasy car warranty we'll also help with expensive repair bills - including the costs of parts, labour and diagnostic. Even without this additional protection, our breakdown cover gives you access to our garage network of over 10,000 approved workshops where we can negotiate a great price car repair for you.

What Breakdown Cover is best for you?

Choosing the right breakdown cover depends entirely on how much driving you do and how far you go when you do drive. If you only drive once a week and that is just to the local supermarket over a mile down the road then Local Recovery would be the option for you. If you are in your car everyday and need it to get to work then Nationwide Recovery and Home Assist would be ideal as it will be able to help you if you get stuck on your driveway and if you are planning a trip into Europe, obviously Europewide is the one for you.
