Most standard motorbike insurances offer cover in the event of an accident or an insured incident, such as fire or theft. But not many of these insurance cover such emergencies such as your bike breaking down on the motorway. Unless you get help from a sympathetic road user or you have a breakdown cover, you are probably going to be stuck by the roadside for a long time.
Luckily, RAC offers riders a broad range of breakdown cover options. These breakdown covers are specifically designed for bikers and offer riders the luxury of choosing between 4 different levels of RAC breakdown cover. Any experienced rider is well aware that it is smart to have a breakdown cover in place to avoid being stranded by the roadside, especially at awkward hours. Xyz in partnership with RAC offers riders a 24-hour service, quick response time and a professional patrol team to ensure that bikers are not left stranded in the event of a breakdown.
