Completely incompetent

Telephoned at 13:15 to request a recovery. Was informed they were busy and to expect to wait until 3 pm which is understandable. Waited until 3:45 to phone and ask for an update on my request to be told they had no request for me in the system. My initial call was recorded and listened to again and all they could say was that they were sorry my request hadn't been logged and would have to start the process again. The garage is now closed and I will be without my car for 4 days due to working 12 hour shifts in the hospital. All I needed was to be towed two miles to a garage. Apparently too difficult a task for this company. Avoid at all costs.

Good service in a breakdown

Used the breakdown cover that came with my insurance. No hassle when I rang up and it was quick to arrive. The service was provided by a local company contracted by Hastings which was good. Overall I would recommend. The product came with the upgraded Hastings car insurance; it was an extra £50 or so but you got extra cashback so it worked out as maybe £5 more expensive than the non breakdown version.

Use local suppliers

Not a freephone number to call

Hastings breakdown cover

This cover was provided free with my insurance cover.It is equal to my previous cover which I paid £28 for,so I would recommend getting Hastings insurance with the free breakdown cover.Good customer service which did not keep you waiting on the phone.

Buying Hastings car insurance and breakdown cover

when I took my insurance out with Hastings Direct, I also got a great price for there breakdown cover. the best deals are always every think in one package. I have only used them one time and they arrived on time and fixed my car within 10 minutes. This was great as I was on my way to work and not late. the drive was very helpful and very polite and he new what the small problem was within a few minutes and fix it. I signed the form and was on my way he ask me to run the car and if the problem re accrued, he would follow me for a few miles and review the problem again, good for me it has been fine and the problem has not returned. the next time I go a service I informed the garage of what happened. they checked and said it was ok.
