Recovery is a natural next step on from basic Roadside cover. It’s for motorists who want to know that they will get home even if their car refuses to start in the event of a breakdown. Although 70% – 80% of all breakdowns are fixed at the roadside, the ones that don’t will need towing to a local garage for repair. Towing fees can run into hundreds of pounds and you can bet you’ll get hit when you least need it. The cost of taking out recovery cover on top of basic Roadside is so minimal it makes sense to do it.

If you get a puncture and the spare is flat it could cost you £350 in towing fees when extending your policy would have been another £15 -£20 annually if you had added Recovery. A faulty alternator repair could cost the same as a year’s car insurance in tow fees so adding Recovery to you policy really does make sense. Most providers stipulate that you need to be at least a quarter of a mile away from home for a breakdown to be classed as a Recovery. For home breakdowns you would need to consider additional cover specifically for that situation.

There are plenty of good Recovery deals on the market. In all instances they will include Roadside assistance as this will be the first course of action before your roadside mechanic deems it necessary to tow your car.
