And you'll get all of this as standard...

What's not covered...

  • A fault that doesn’t stop you driving, for example a faulty headlight or a faulty washer jet
  • Specialist equipment if you need to be recovered from mud, snow or a flood
  • A car that is not in a roadworthy condition without road tax and MOT
  • Any vehicle that is being used for hire and reward purposes

Cover levels

Like we said earlier, you’ll only pay for what you need (it’s only fair, after all.) See which level of cover works for you and we’ll take it from there.
