    Car breakdown cover - quick question

    Probably a bit of a silly question but does anyone know if you can get breakdown cover just for say a minimum of a month or is it the same with them all and you have to take out the full year?

    except it would cost more than the car is worth:roll:

    but im looking at greenflag and its £23.10 for a year

    I got basic Green Flag cover for £24 for a year. £20 Quidco cashback so net cost £4 for the year. Hardly worth getting short term cover. :-D

    Does depend on car and driver, I think.

    I think it might be because i live on the isle of man, it can't be due to my age or the car, that's why i only want it for a week or so when i go to the uk, i won't have any need for it at here

    thanks for that but i've never really heard of them, are they reliable? if i was going to pay that much i think i'd stick with the rac or the aa

    Fully reliable. Part of a much bigger company. I'm with them, and lots of people are. First found them from the "other" site, and Martin does recommend highly I believe.

    I think that you get full cover with them, i.e. get you home, homestart etc. For the same sort of money, RAC/AA give you basic only, i.e tow to nearest garage!

    i'm just not sure if they will actually have anybody over here covering the island like the rac and aa do so it might be a waste of money
