The Importance Of Breakdown Cover

Date posted: September 1, 2015

It can be tempting to avoid paying for vehicle breakdown cover, but should a breakdown occur and you are faced with an emergency, ensuring that you have an effective policy will be absolutely invaluable.

As no one can be certain when a breakdown is likely to occur, it is essential to be covered for this eventuality; as detailed below there are many important reasons for investing in car breakdown cover.

Cost savings

Some people are reluctant to invest in breakdown cover because of the additional costs, however, if your car breaks down unexpectedly and you do not have breakdown cover, you could be faced with a hefty recovery bill or more often, be asked to pay before you are recovered and you wouldn’t necessarily have the funds to cover it. By choosing a policy, from NCI,  you’ll be able to find the cover to suit your personal requirements and one that will fit within your budget.


Nobody wants to be in a situation where they are stranded on a motorway with perhaps nobody for miles to help them. However, by investing in breakdown cover, help would only be a phone call away and the company responsible for your cover would ensure they can continue with your journey as quickly as possible. This is especially important for people that might be travelling with their families and require assistance as soon as possible should the need arise.

Quick Repairs

Breakdown cover will ensure help is at hand to assist in repairing your vehicle at the roadside whenever possible or recovering you to a specialist to carry out those urgent repairs that are required to get your car back on the road. Finding the garage and getting the car scheduled in for a repair can be time-consuming and costly. However, if you have a car breakdown cover, simple repairs can often be carried out by the roadside and get you back behind the wheel within a short period of time.

Peace of mind

If you’re going on a long journey, travelling late at night, or often have cause to travel on your own, you want to know that help is not far away should the vehicle break down. As well as the cost saving benefits and quick repairs that a car breakdown policy offers, one of the most important aspects of cover is the peace of mind the policy gives.
