How to Find the Best Car Recovery Service

A car breakdown is a hassle most of us hope to avoid but should be prepared for nonetheless. Here's how to find the best car recovery services at a cheap price.

Broken Down Car

Getting a comprehensive car breakdown recovery policy can make a big difference should your car give up the ghost en-route to your destination - here's how to find the best car recovery prices on the market.

What type of cover do you need?

While it can be tempting to cut costs and pick the cheapest car recovery service advertised, this could leave you with insufficient cover should something go wrong with your car.

Instead you need to weigh up what you need from your breakdown recovery service before you compare recovery costs.

Vehicle based or personal cover?

Choosing between vehicle only cover and personal cover is often the first decision you'll need to make.

Personal cover will give your car breakdown recovery in any vehicle up to a certain age, even if you're not driving at the time.

Vehicle based cover tends to be cheaper and will give you cover for a specific car listed on your policy - if you need classic car recovery then vehicle based protection may be the best choice as long as the provider extends their policy to accommodate the age of your car.

Where will you be driving?

If you take your car overseas on a regular basis you'll need to make sure your car breakdown recovery policy will cover you while you're away.

To find a cheap car recovery service weigh up how often you travel abroad in your car and if a European car recovery policy is worth the extra money, or taking out single trip cover as and when you travel is a better option.

Other cover benefits

As well as standard roadside recovery protection which will take you and your vehicle to a destination of your choice if the problem can't be fixed at the roadside you may want to include other areas of breakdown cover.

Home start cover offers you protection if you car won't start at home, rather than just on the road, while onward travel cover will cover the cost of accommodation or car hire while your car is being repaired.

Find the best price

Once you've decided on the level of cover you want, you can use our car recovery quote comparison table to exclude all the policies that don't meet your needs and find the provider that gives you the protection you need at the best price.
