To make a claim please call 0330 113 2433 (09:00 ‐ 17:00 weekdays, excluding public holidays, calls are recorded for quality purposes).

If you have broken down whilst driving and require roadside assistance we will arrange for a recovery operator to provide assistance. Once the arrangements have been made with a recovery operator, we will contact you with updated information, including the estimated time of arrival. Therefore, please keep your mobile phone switched on and available to take calls or receive SMS messages at any time. Please avoid using your phone for unnecessary calls etc, which may make it difficult for us to get through.

You will be asked to remain with or nearby your vehicle until the recovery operator arrives. Once the recovery operator arrives at the scene please be guided by their safety advice. If you have broken down on a motorway and have no means of contacting us, or are unaware of your location, please use the nearest SOS box and advise the emergency services of our telephone number. Each 100m marker has the direction of the nearest telephone.
