Motorists can save over £100 on breakdown cover
Motorists could save up to 76 per cent on comprehensive car breakdown cover by shopping around, according moneysupermarket.com.
The price comparison website claimed that comprehensive breakdown cover can vary from £32 to £133.20 a year, depending on the insurer.
However, moneysupermarket.com urged motorists to ensure they had adequate cover with the long weekend ahead.
Richard Mason, director of insurance at moneysupermarket.com, said: “The bank holiday is always a busy time on Britain’s roads resulting in an increase in car breakdowns, but motorists can avoid wasting precious holiday time on the hard shoulder by ensuring they have adequate breakdown insurance. It is important to choose not only the most competitive policy, but one which is comprehensive enough for your needs.
“UK breakdown policies do not automatically provide cover for driving abroad so those planning to cross the channel or venture further afield should check they have the appropriate cover.”
