I've just got off the phone to Norwich Union, to purchase car breakdown insurance. I got the full package Rescue, recovery, at home and onward travel for less than £50. Much cheaper than the others, details of packages can be found http://www.norwichunion.com/breakdown-cover/cover-options.htm . Call 0800 0964704, get a quote and then give reference CQM1, which should now reduce the quote by ½. They appear to be using RAC to provide the service. Depending on the level of cover and the age of the vehicle, the premium may by just over £20 for the year.
