MAYDAY UK Breakdown Cover

MAYDAY UK Breakdown Cover

Roadside assistance for your outfit, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year


With three levels of cover to choose from, MAYDAY UK Breakdown Cover has got you covered, nationwide.

For over 40 years, we’ve partnered with Green Flag to bring our members a UK breakdown and roadside recovery service called MAYDAY. Whether you’re driving your car, motorhome, campervan or towing a caravan, or you have multiple vehicles, we have a level of cover that will suit you.

We hope you'll never need to use the MAYDAY service, however, we can assure you that no matter what happens, MAYDAY is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, to ensure you get where you need to be.

Frequently asked questions

Does using breakdown cover affect insurance?

No, your breakdown cover and your vehicle insurance are completely separate, even if they are being provided by the same company. However, following an accident, you may need to use your breakdown cover before making a repair claim under your vehicle cover.

Tell me more about the Home call

If you have our Roadside & Recovery cover level, and you break down at home, where the vehicle is usually stored, or within a quarter of a mile of that location, you will not be covered.

Not having cover for breakdowns occurring where the vehicle is kept is one of the main reasons assistance has to be declined under the MAYDAY UK Breakdown policy, and breaking down ‘at home’ is a very common occurrence! Our Premium UK and Premium UK Plus cover levels both include Home call cover. We’ll come to you at home, where the vehicle is normally stored (if different) or if you’ve broken down within a quarter of a mile of that location and, if it’s not possible to get you going again, we’ll take you and your vehicle (and even your passengers if required) to the nearest garage or any other single destination within 25 miles of where the breakdown happened.

How can I make a claim?

If you suffer a breakdown or are involved in an accident and need recovering, please use the Green Flag App to register a claim, or call 0800 051 5318.
