Re: Do You Have Emergency Breakdown Cover?
I have Britannia Rescue cover which at about £80 a year gives me total protection away from home in my 156. They use any local approved garage and have always been very nice to me. When the 156 Selespeed pump blew, they came to collect it from where it stopped, and I nominated Alfa in Northampton, they trailored it there with no fuss at all! Many breakdown firms will only take it to a local garage, not one you nominate.
PS A friend of my wifes drove from Leeds to see us in Peterborough and his car packed in, he works for Halifax which owns Green flag. The van never came, repeated phone calls eventually discovered that they had sent a van to his home address, not the one he'd given where he broke down. They took over 15 phone calls, and 3 hours to come out. Then said the car, a clio was knackered and they were changing shift within an hour, so the next guy would come get him and drive back to Leeds. The next guy came in a little van which couldn't tow! So had to go back and get one which could! Unbelieveable incompetence! Wouldn't touch them with someone elses!
