Breakdown Insurance Cover from HIC
Call now on 0800 313 4095
The cost of not having breakdown cover can be huge due to the high towing costs and call out charges which mean breakdown insurance is almost a necessity. Breakdown cover will usually pay for itself the first time you need it, as motorway towing charges can be £150, the average garage call-out charge is £90 and the average call-out for a flat battery is £66. Not only that but breakdowns can cause you to miss a vital meeting, be stranded in the middle of nowhere or stuck on the motorway hard shoulder for hours making a good quality breakdown insurance policy an essential purchase. Flux Rescue offers great value cover for a great price. Similar levels of cover offered by the AA and RAC are nearly double the price.
With HIC Rescue the vehicle is covered for UK and European roadside assistance and recovery, the cover also includes a home start service all for £70.
HIC Rescue will arrange help at the scene of the breakdown and will arrange and pay call-out fees and labour charges needed to start the vehicle. If the vehicle cannot be repaired quickly at the scene of the breakdown, HIC Rescue will arrange and pay the reasonable cost of taking the vehicle, you and up to 5 passengers from the place where the vehicle has broken down to the nearest available garage.
If the vehicle cannot be repaired at the scene of the breakdown and cannot be repaired the same day at a suitable garage, HIC Rescue will arrange and pay the reasonable cost of taking the vehicle, you and up to 5 passengers from the place where the vehicle has broken down to any one place you choose.
