Your breakdown cover is across all vehicles on your policy and any drivers you have insured to drive those vehicles, so if you and your partner both broke down in separate vehicles on your multi car policy and you had multi car breakdown cover, you could arrange callouts to both breakdowns. If however you’re insured as an additional driver on someone else’s policy, this cover would not be valid for a breakdown in their vehicle and they would have to have their own breakdown cover in place.


Get additional cover at decent prices, and make sure you’re fully protected. Did you know you can get excess protection whether you have a single or multi car policy, and get your excess paid back to you if you need to make a claim?
