Flexible Van Breakdown Cover to get you back on the road

At Swinton, we understand how important your van can be, which is why we offer Van Breakdown Cover to help get you back on the road as quickly as possible.

Our Van Breakdown Cover is only available if you have a Van Insurance policy with us, giving you extra peace of mind every time you get behind the wheel.

Breaking down can happen anywhere and at any time, and our range of four flexible Breakdown Cover options means you can choose one to suit your own particular needs.

Van Breakdown Cover you can trust

Benefits of our Van Breakdown Cover include:

  • Four out of five vehicles fixed at the roadside
  • Average response time of under 50 minutes
  • National network of 3,500 roadside operators
  • 24 hour 365 days a year emergency helpline
  • Underwritten by Inter Partner SA UK Branch Assistance which is fully owned by the AXA Assistance Group

*Statistics quoted are based on data gathered between August and December 2017

What levels of Van Breakdown Cover are available?

Remember – Van Breakdown Cover is only available as an additional cover option with our Van Insurance and can't be purchased as a standalone policy.

Compare our four levels of Van Breakdown Cover and choose the cover that suits your needs.

Going abroad? Our European Cover will protect you against breakdowns that happen on European trips lasting 30 days or less. If your vehicle is immobilised in Europe, then alternate transport or a B&B will be provided – whichever is the most appropriate solution.

Things you should know

  • Does not cover the cost of replacement fuel or for any spare parts required
  • Does not provide recovery when vehicles are partially or completely buried in snow, mud, sand or water
  • Does not cover vehicles over 3.5 tonnes
  • Any breakdown that occurs within the first 24 hours of cover being taken out will only be covered for the Roadside Recovery level of cover

What to do if your van breaks down

Breaking down can be a stressful experience that can leave you feeling vulnerable, so it's a good idea to prepare yourself:

  • Keep some essential items in your van, such as a torch, blanket and a first aid kit
  • If you do break down, make sure other drivers can see you by pulling over to a safe place and putting your hazard lights on
  • Save Swinton's Van Breakdown Cover number in your phone, so it's easy to find when you need to call them
