Tesco Breakdown Service Guide & User Review

Tesco Breakdown Cover GuideTesco Breakdown is a cut-price version of RAC Breakdown.

The service offers three cover levels plus European breakdown cover at extra cost.

Tesco breakdown is attached to a vehicle, not the driver, so whoever drives the covered vehicle has breakdown cover – but more than one vehicle can go on a policy if the driver uses two or more vehicles.

Tesco breakdown also only covers vehicles less than 10 years old that have been serviced according to the maker’s advice.
