European breakdown cover comparison

 

See how our european breakdown cover compares on levels of cover against the the AA, CallAssist and QDos


The comparison table shown below has been gathered by an independent research team based on findings taken on the 21st of April 2015. In all cases breakdown operators were contacted via their call centres in order to verify the levels of cover.

The amounts shown are the maximum payable under the policy except where it says unlimited. Unlimited means that claim has no upper limit ( except where the value of the claim is greater than the value of the car)
