What’s included in your service explained:

Home Start

If you breakdown anywhere in Northern Ireland or the Republic of Ireland, a recovery operator will be dispatched to assist you. If your vehicle can be repaired, up to one hour’s labour is provided. Otherwise, we will tow your vehicle to the nearest repairer. If your vehicle can not be fixed locally within a reasonable time period, we will take it to any one place within Northern Ireland.

 

Punctures

We’ll change your wheel if you’re carrying a suitable spare.

 

Lost Keys

If your keys are lost, we will send a representative to assess the vehicle recovery requirements and, where specialist equipment is required, take your vehicle to the nearest secure area until a replacement is found. If your keys are locked in the vehicle, we can help to access the vehicle.

 

Fuel Shortages

If you run out of fuel, we’ll take you and your vehicle to the nearest petrol station.
