Free Home Recovery
NFU Mutual has announced that it’ll be offering free home recovery services to its car insurance customers. The offer, as it stands, applies to more than 600,000 car and light van customers. It’ll also remain valid until August 31st, regardless of whether the country is fully out of lockdown or not. Recoveries will be handled by the RAC, too, so drivers can rest assured that call outs will be handled professionally. Both home and national recovery is included.
Company literature states, ‘the cover will include emergency roadside assistance, recovery of the vehicle, driver and passengers to any UK destination if the vehicle cannot be repaired at the roadside, accidental miss-fuelling cover, unlimited call outs and no call-out charges, and small hire car for 48 hours if the vehicle needs a longer repair and the repair cannot be done the same day’. Unfortunately, larger vehicles and motorcycles aren’t included in the offer. Finally, NFL Mutual customers don’t need to ‘activate’ the offer; they can simply call the company and select a ‘breakdown’ option.
Car Insurance Refunds
Car insurance companies have been scrutinised in the UK over the course of the lockdown. At one stage, traffic levels declined to those recorded in the 1950s; a time when there were less than three million registered vehicles, as opposed to the 40 million today. As a result, the amount of payments being made as a result of accidents and collisions has declined considerably. Some of these savings, critics say, should be handed back to car insurance policyholders in the form of refunds. Some providers have been listening. Admiral, for instance, has issued £25 refunds. LV has also announced that it’ll be offering refunds, although its scheme differs from Admiral in terms of who qualifies.
NFU Mutual’s offer is no doubt aimed at the number of breakdowns that are expected after lockdown measures are relaxed. Millions of motorists have undoubtedly failed to carry out regular maintenance on their vehicles; causing all sorts of faults to emerge, especially problems with batteries. As a result, breakdown recovery companies are expecting a surge in call outs.
