*** Update, 2017 *** In March 2017, 2Gether Insurance stopped offering breakdown cover. Its existing customers' policies were transferred to Emergency Assist Ltd.
Emergency Assist's breakdown policy uses a service agreement (also known as a service contract), which means it is not an insured policy and therefore not regulated by the FCA.
2Gether still offers a range of car insurance products.
2Gether Insurance is an independent specialist insurance company founded in 2003. They offer many niche insurance policies, such as for kit cars and horseboxes, but their breakdown cover is available to all cars, motorcycles, motorhomes and vans.

Overview of the cover provided by 2Gether Breakdown Insurance

It also includes: home start including up to one hour’s labour, onwards travel for the policy holder and up to four passengers, recovery for a caravan or trailer (up to 25 feet) attached to your vehicle and overnight accommodation or hire car if your car is not fixed on the same day.
Rescue Plus and EU offers all of the above benefits along with European cover for up to 90 days a year, but not more than 30 days per trip.
