FlexPlus breakdown cover
Our FlexPlus current account comes with UK and European Breakdown and Recovery Assistance. Whether you’re at home or by the roadside, you’ll have help.
Breakdown assistance – even if it's not your vehicle
As long as you’re with the eligible vehicle when help arrives, you’ll have UK and European breakdown cover.
Your vehicle is covered even if you’re not driving
As long as the driver has your permission and is legally allowed to drive.
Both vehicles are covered with your joint account
If you have a joint FlexPlus current account, both you and the other account holder have breakdown cover.
Home assist, roadside and onward travel all included
So no matter where you are, we can help you on your way.
48-hour hire car benefit in the UK. Up to £800 towards a hire vehicle in Europe.
No excess to pay
Unlimited call outs
There are no limits on the number of call outs you can make. Vehicles must be serviced, maintained in line with manufacturer guidelines, taxed and have a valid MOT. We will ask to see evidence of servicing, maintenance and repair if we believe the service is being used excessively.
No need to register your vehicle
Cover starts when you open your FlexPlus account.
Help even if your car can’t be fixed
If your car can't be fixed, we'll tow it to a garage. We can pay for you to carry on your journey, up to £100 for public transport. Or up to £500 for accommodation near the repair garage.
Help if you run out of fuel or need help with lost or broken keys
We’ll help with broken keys if we can. You will have to pay if you need a specialist locksmith.

To get FlexPlus breakdown cover
You need to:
- have a FlexPlus account.
- be a UK resident.
It’s not possible to have a FlexPlus account without the insurances, and you can’t buy the insurances separately.
Make sure you read and understand the policy documents:
When you make a claim, you can use the policy document to specify what help you need. This will help us to process your claim quickly and effectively.
When your cover starts
As soon as your FlexPlus account is open you will start to benefit from the insurances.
Sometimes we might not be able to open your account straight away. For example, if you are opening a joint account, and we need additional signatures. In these cases, your cover begins as soon as you get your confirmation letter to tell you the account is opened.
If you already have breakdown cover
Before you apply, consider if you already have breakdown cover. You could end up paying twice for the same cover, so consider which policy provides the best cover for you.
The cost of any claims, if you are covered by more than one policy, may be shared proportionally between the insurance companies.
If your circumstances change
If you change your vehicle to another one that’s eligible, don’t worry, you don't need to contact us, you'll still be covered.
If you move out of the UK, you’ll still have to pay the £13 fee each month for maintaining the account. However, you won’t be eligible for any of the insurances that come with the account.
