Elephant breakdown comes highly rated

Elephant breakdown offers great cover at a great price. Our National Plus cover is one of the most comprehensive products on the market.

The help you need, when you need it

Add Elephant Breakdown to your policy when you get a quote. Elephant offers three levels of breakdown, so you can choose the cover that's right for you:

  • Local Cover
  • National Plus Cover
  • European Plus Cover

How do I buy it?

If you are an Elephant customer, just contact our customer services on 0333 220 2006 and your cover will start 48 hours later. Alternatively, you can buy Breakdown cover when you get a quote for your car insurance.

Lines are open 8am-9pm weekdays, 9am-5pm Saturdays and 10am-4pm Sundays. Calls to 03 numbers will cost no more than calls to national geographic numbers (starting 01 or 02) from both mobiles and landlines.

Unlimited UK Nationwide Recovery

We don't believe you need to compromise on great cover to get a good deal. So we included Unlimited UK nationwide recovery on all our Breakdown cover options. You can have as many call-outs as you need. The only small difference is on Local Cover where recovery is within ten miles of the breakdown.

Hire car or overnight accommodation

If you breakdown and we can't get you back on the road, you can either claim up to £500 (up to £1,000 outside the UK) for hire car/onward travel and £150 return trip or claim up to £600 for overnight accommodation with breakfast. Yummy!

Home assist

What happens if your car breaks down at home? Fear not, National Plus and European Plus breakdown cover includes three Home Assists per policy term, which covers any breakdown within a quarter of a mile radius/straight line of your home address.

Damaged key cover

How embarrassing: you've dropped your car keys down a drain cover. It's OK, this cover will include the cost of a callout for one of the technicians to be sent round. They'll either use their trunk to get them back, or be a human with a clever way to solve the problem. The cost of replacement keys/locks are not covered.

How Breakdown cover works

If you have a breakdown, call 0800 458 9283. 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.
