Saga adds breakdown repair to roadside cover
Saga is offering customers with breakdown assistance cover the chance to upgrade to a new policy that includes breakdown repair production.
The over-50′s insurance specialist said the new policy covers customers for up to £500 for labour and parts if their vehicle is so damaged that it cannot be repaired at the roadside and needs taking to a garage.
Breakdowns due to failed starter motors, head gaskets, and batteries are all covered by the policy.
Priced at £6.86 per month in addition to standard breakdown assistance cover, the new policy is available for vehicles under 10 years old, or with fewer than 100,000 miles on the clock.
Andrew Goodsell, Saga Group chief executive, said: “Whilst the over 50s tend to take better care of their cars, breakdowns can, unfortunately, happen to us all and often at the most inconvenient time.
“If you are unlucky enough to have a breakdown the last thing you want is to be faced with an unplanned repair bill before you are able to continue your journey.”
