    Spare car or hire one. 6th Mar 18 at 4:14 PM
    Hi just wondered if anyone can help me, I run a small busines my issue doesent happen a lot but when it does creates a lot of problems. Basically If my car breaks down I have to rely on trians which with all the delays and issues really disrupts my day and I have lots of appointments to make based on timings. I know I could probably hire a car. But are there any insurance s and or breakdown cover or anything else that supply's a car in this kind of event?

    Haven't really found anything online

    Thanks in advance

    How often does your car breakdown?

    I can't even remember when mine last broke down. If it is a big concern for you, then get a more reliable car.

    would some kind of car club give you the flexibility you need?
    For example
    Never put off till tomorrow what you can do today!
    Cos if you do it today and like it...You can do it again tomorrow..

    I have a lot of equipment for work (sports) so when car breaks down traveling on trains is difficult, I think my car is getting to the end so is breaking down a bit more now. I do need a regular car.

    I used to have the RAC cover with all the bells and whistles but thankfully never needed to use it. I'm now covered by AutoAid bit I don't think they provide a courtesy car
