Types of Cover
Vehicle based cover - As the name suggests, this type of policy covers the vehicle not the person so if more than one person drives the car, van or motorbike then if that vehicle breaks down it will be covered.
Personal cover - Personal breakdown cover is usually more expensive, however, personal cover covers you for any vehicle you drive or are a passenger in.
Joint or family breakdown cover - Usually associated with personal cover, family or joint breakdown cover enables 2, 3 or 4 people living at one address to be covered for any vehicle they are travelling in, whether they are driving or not.
