Tesco offers 30% off car breakdown cover

30th July 2008 Print

With the price of fuel at record highs, running a car has never been so expensive. Tesco is helping to reduce running costs by offering motorists 30% off car breakdown cover when they order online.

Tesco offers three levels of cover, Standard Care, Extra Care and Total Care-each one provides the essentials of roadside assistance and a tow to a local garage. But customers can choose to add extra cover, such as a hire car, or transport to their home or original destination in the UK for them, their vehicle and up to seven others. The discount is also available for breakdown cover on the continent with Tesco Euro Care, giving customers peace of mind from only £31.50 per trip.

In the unfortunate event of a vehicle being hit by mechanical problems, car breakdown cover minimises disturbance to travel plans and allows customers to get quickly back on the road.

"With the August bank holiday approaching, now is a great time for families to arrange breakdown cover to ensure their trips go according to plan," says Allan Burns, Tesco Head of General Insurance. "The 30% online discount will also help them save money which can be put towards other enjoyable outings."

With Tesco Car Breakdown Cover, it is the vehicle that is covered, not the driver, so anyone driving the car with the policy holder's permission is covered in the event of a breakdown.

The reduced prices apply to new customers in their first year only.
