It’s an unfortunate statistic, but every day the UK sees up to 12,000 accidents on its roads…
It is a very stressful and confusing situation for most and it’s difficult to know what’s best in this situation. Especially if you are on your own. So, if you are involved in an accident, even if you are miles from home, and your car's damaged and not safe to drive, what do you do?
If you ring your insurer, they probably won’t recover you if your car isn’t driveable. So how do you sort your car out? The police will call someone out for you, but you will get charged for your vehicle recovery. Most if not all breakdown schemes, (AA, RAC etc.) don’t include accident recovery as part of their package, and those that do add in the small print that they will charge you if they can’t claim it back elsewhere?
Vehicle recovery would cost you upwards of £250 - and then another £50 or more every day that your car is stored until it's taken away for repair.
Remember that £200 or more excess on your car insurance that helped keep your premium down a bit? You're now going to have to pay that to your insurer to get your car back after the repairs are done.
Already you can be £500+ out of pocket so fast it's shocking - even if the accident wasn't your fault.
