Blink Breakdown boosts cover to a best of breed roadside assistance offering for you and your clients

Blink Breakdown has enhanced their broad suite of roadside assistance products to include:

  • No maximum age for vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes
  • Misfuel and running out of fuel cover included as standard including drainage and 10 litres of the correct fuel, recovery of up to 10 miles available if necessary
  • Roadside assistance and national recovery reduced to a ¼ mile from home (previously 1 mile)
  • Alternative transport costs increased to £250 maximum
  • Overnight accommodation costs increased to £150 pp and £500 maximum
  • Vehicle width has been increased to 2.55 metres

And the great news is, all of these additional benefits have not increased the already competitive net premiums.
