I've looked into and am considering the Warrany Direct one.
If you have your own breakdown cover (RAC/AA etc) then they do a 'lite' version of their product.
The majority of the cost of their standard package is for recovery in the event of a breakdown.
They have quoted me £99 P/A for my 57 plate <80k Miles 159 1.9JTDm
They will pay 80% of repair bills provided the recovery company specifiy that the breakdown was caused by failure of a covered part (not including consumables, tyres, break pads etc)
(IIRC they also cover items damaged due to the failed part as well)
and for the £99 package they will pay for the work to be done at any vat registered garage, for a bit more they will pay for the work to be done at a main dealer.
The only stummbling block I have at the moment is that they ask for the car to have been serviced at a vat registered garage in the last 12 months (don't need full history) but given that I have serviced it myself (twice) in the 6 months I've owned it and I got no service history with it, I need to get it done again at a proper garage before I buy the warranty.
Whatever you go for read the small print, they tried to pressure me into buying over the phone but I refused until they sent me the full policy wording, which they were happy to do.
