To make a claim under your Breakdown Repair Cover, you'll first need to call us for breakdown assistance.
If we can fix your vehicle at the roadside, you'll only need to pay the £35 excess to the Patrol.
If a garage repair is needed, we'll confirm if it's covered once the problem is diagnosed. If it is, we'll authorise the garage to carry out the work. We'll also help to ensure that the process of getting your vehicle repaired is as simple, quick and hassle-free as possible. We can even arrange to pay the breakdown repair bill directly with the garage.
The garage must get confirmation of cover and authorisation from us before any repair work is started in order for you to be able to make a claim.
A claim on your Breakdown Repair Cover can't be made for any faults that occur during the first 14 days after your agreed policy start date. If you change your vehicle you will also not be able to claim for it until 14 days after making the change.
