  2. Roadside & Homecall assistance – Roadside assistance (see 1. above) with the added bonus of covering you at home if your car won't start.
  3. Roadside, Recovery & European assistance – Roadside assistance (see 1. above) with Recovery means we'll take your car to the repairer of your choice, your home or even your destination, and European assistance (for cover throughout most of Europe).
