“Having your vehicle break down during a journey, or discovering it won’t start in the morning when you need to get to work or a meeting, can be a disruptive and very expensive experience, it can cost £100’s just to be towed to a garage, or £1,000’s to get your car home from Europe,” explains Carl Carter, Director, Voyager Insurance Services. “Voyager’s UK Breakdown Cover provides essential and cost-effective protection.”

Carter continues, “Research shows the most common forms of car breakdown are: 42% non-start, 18% puncture, 15% flat battery, 14% an unknown cause and 11% engine cut-out and won’t restart. Without insurance, roadside repairs or towing can be very costly, Voyager’s UK Breakdown Cover provides an attractive and very cost-effective solution especially compared to some of the other big name breakdown brands.”

UK Breakdown Cover is one product in an exciting suite of insurance solutions offered by Voyager Insurance Services including Travel, Wedding and Party insurance – all made available to brokers and retail customers via the Voyager Insurance online quote and buy platform.
