Service you can depend on with benefits to suit your needs

Adding Breakdown cover couldn't be easier with Diamond. Just call us on 0333 220 2004 (Call fees | Opening hours) and your Breakdown cover will start just 48 hours later.

How Breakdown cover works

If you have a breakdown, call 0330 102 0806. Tell the operator your policy number, your car registration, make and model. Of course we also need to know where you are. The phone operator will take your phone number, and keep you updated with the estimated time of the technician's arrival, and their name, so you know who to expect.

Flexible cover options

We offer three levels of Breakdown cover, so you just need to decide which is right for you:

Roadside Assistance

Covers you for unlimited roadside callouts as long as you're more than a quarter of a mile from home. Your car will be recovered to the nearest garage within a 10 mile radius of your breakdown.

National Cover

In addition to unlimited roadside callouts, this level of cover also offers unlimited home assistance callouts which are within a quarter of a mile of your home address.

European Cover

This offers the same level of cover as National but has the added benefit of also covering you in most European countries for up to 90 days.

Compare Breakdown Cover

All our cover options come with unlimited roadside recoveries (breakdowns more than ¼ mile from home).
