What is breakdown cover?
Breakdown cover does what it says on the tin – covers you in the instance that your vehicle breaks down. We offer three levels of breakdown cover, with Call Assist, which can be added to your Marmalade insurance policy, these are:
This gives you roadside assistance anywhere in UK, provided it is more than one mile from your home address. If the car cannot be fixed at the roadside, we will recover your car to a suitable garage, or your home, up to 10 miles from where you break down. It also includes key assist and overnight accommodation, should you need it.
This includes all the benefits of our Local cover, plus recovery to your home or chosen UK destination, without the 10-mile limit, as well as Home Assist and alternative options for onward travel.
Yes, you guessed it. This includes all the benefits of our National cover, extended outside the UK to provide cover whilst driving in Europe.
Should I add breakdown cover to my insurance?
Let’s say it how it is – when your car breaks down it can be extremely stressful, especially if you’re mid-journey when it happens. Adding breakdown cover to your policy gives you the confidence that, if you were to break down, someone would be there to assist you. It’s a good idea to check if you have breakdown cover already as this is sometimes included with certain packaged bank accounts or as part of a manufacturer’s warranty with a new car. If you want to include breakdown cover with your policy, you can add it when you buy your insurance or when you come to renew.
