About Breakdown Direct

At Breakdown Direct, we are committed to bringing you breakdown assistance products that offer low prices, excellent value and first class service via a totally online shopping experience.

Because we sell directly to you using the Internet, we save money on operating costs. We pass this saving on to you in the form of lower insurance rates, so we are typically much cheaper than other breakdown providers. In fact our price guarantee means that we will beat the price of similar breakdown cover from the AA, RAC, or Green Flag for vehicles under 11 years old (excluding any time limited special offers). But don't think that less money means less service.

Our breakdown assistance products are underwritten by a subsidiary of one of the world's largest insurance groups, AXA . And our 24/7 emergency breakdown service is operated by AXA Assistance, who have been providing breakdown assistance to motorists for over 50 years. We also use their experience and expertise to monitor network performance nationwide and ensure that professionalism and effectiveness are maintained throughout.

And this nationwide network of breakdown and recovery agents is already comprehensive and well established, ready and waiting 24 hours a day! - It's the same network that the motoring clubs use when they can't deploy their own patrols - and all our breakdown and recovery specialists belong to an approved trade association, and have to comply with strict service standards and codes of conduct to maintain their accreditation.

So if your looking for low priced breakdown cover, first class customer service as well as a great range of valuable free benefits (UK only), you’ve found it.
