If you don't have LV= car insurance and just want to get breakdown cover, no worries- check out the info below to see what's what. 

What is Breakdown Cover?

This is the second time we have gone with LV. We went with another supplier last year because they were cheaper. I guess you get what you pay for.Allthough LV are dearer they are there when you want them. They do not turn a drama into a disaster.
    • Breakdown cover can also be referred to as breakdown recovery or roadside recovery, so please check if you already have this kind of cover with your bank before taking out a policy..
    • Our trained mobile mechanics aim to fix your vehicle at the roadside 
    •  If a roadside fix isn't possible, we'll tow you to a nearby garage or to your home
    • We repair and recover Petrol, Diesel, Hybrid and Electric cars
    • We'll recharge your electric vehicle if you run out of battery mid-journey 
    • You can add optional extras like European cover, Personal cover or Home Start to your cover
    • Personal cover protects you and your partner if you breakdown in a vehicle that's not yours. We'll cover you both in any privately-owned vehicle in the UK, whether you're driving or a passenger

What info do I need to get a breakdown insurance quote?

For a quicker quote, make sure you've got all of this to hand:

  • Driver details – personal details like your date of birth, address and contact details for you and any named drivers.
  • Vehicle details – information about your vehicle such as the make, model and registration.
  • Eligibility – to make sure we can insure you, we’ll need to know if you are a UK resident and legally entitled to drive. We also need to make sure you don't have breakdown cover elsewhere - it's always best to double check that your bank isn't already providing you this.

 

At LV=, we want to help you to find the right breakdown insurance at the best price. Just because you may find it cheaper elsewhere, it may not necessarily provide you with everything you need. 

For added peace of mind, we don’t charge a fee if you need to cancel during your cooling-off period. This gives you 14 days from when you receive your policy documents to cancel with no fees. We’re currently updating our documents of insurance (DOI) and our policy charges document to reflect this.
