Just another breakdown Monday

Perhaps you’ve been here before or perhaps you’ve been lucky.

Picture it. You’re heading down the motorway. You’ve got a meeting to attend. An important appointment. You had a nice weekend and everything seems normal. Then disaster strikes – The engine light flicks on…

You try to roll it into nearby services but it’s too late. Those unassuming clunks as you set off this morning suddenly make sense. Now you’re sat on the hard shoulder, you’ve missed your appointment or you’re late for work. What’s worse is it’s freezing. Worse still, you thought you’d save a bit by not taking out Breakdown Cover. So what do you do?

In this scenario, you’d have to purchase Instant Breakdown Cover, which is notoriously higher than taking it out with your original policy. Depending on the cover you opt for, if the recovery service isn’t able to fix your car roadside, they’ll take to the nearest garage which may not be a garage you’re familiar with. You’ll be regretting not taking out breakdown cover, no doubt, when you’re pulling out your wallet to cover the cost of towing.

Vehicle Breakdown Cover

It’s a common misconception that Breakdown Cover is an expensive add-on, but it’s not always the case. Level of cover and type of protection varies extensively, so if you’re in with a trusted, smart broker—and we at Jukes strongly believe we are—you’ll be able to have your bespoke insurance needs built around you and your car. So whether it’s a regular commute, a one-off motorway trip, EU travel, or you’ve broken down at home without ever having set off, we can ensure that if disaster does strike, we’ll have you rolling away as quickly as you can say tiny-orange-engine-shaped-light.
