audió meghallgatása: ITT

Breakdown cover is a service that provides assistance to motorists whose vehicles have broken down and need urgent help. In most areas, the service is provided by commercial service providers, with an annual fee to purchase the service. In some areas, there is a government-sponsored monopoly, and the service may come in the form of an insurance policy with premiums, instead of a member subscription fee. In Europe, it is popularly available via each country's national automobile membership association. Many automobile manufacturers offer roadside assistance for their customers, sometimes for free for some period after the purchase of a new vehicle.

United Kingdom AA roadside assistance

The term breakdown cover is most common in the United Kingdom, elsewhere, it may also be referred to as emergency roadside repair or roadside assistance. When communication technology and availability made it practical, a network of emergency phone boxes by the roadside was introduced in some countries. In recent years, the widespread ownership of mobile phones has supplanted the need for an emergency phone network.

Breakdown cover may include jump starting an automobile, towing a vehicle, helping to change a flat tire, providing a small amount of fuel when a vehicle runs out of it, pulling out a vehicle that is stuck in snow or helping people who are locked out of their cars.
