After a breakdown, if your vehicle is still not repaired or safe to drive when it is time for you to go home, AXA Assistance will pay for suitable transport to get you, your passengers and your luggage to your home, and up to £150 towards other travel costs in the UK while you wait for your own vehicle.

AXA Assistance will then choose the most appropriate solution from the following options:

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
