      This is the first time I have use for my insurance company for any major breakdown. The last time it happened was when my stub shaft axle broke down the road and they towed me home. This was a major breakdown but it was so close to home that I did the repairs myself in a few hours.
      This time however they have been put to the test for what they promised me when I chose the best cover in vehicle insurance. This even covered my engine and transmission until 200,000 km. After I lost that cover, they reduced my premiums by 15%.
      When the car stopped, I called my insurance company and they sent a tow truck. The tow truck driver arranged a hotel room for me and the next day had a rental car for me. All included in my insurance premiums. I did not have to pay a cent.
      This is impressive. They promised me service with a real person manning the telephone 24/7 and not an automated message.
      My travel insurance also covers all responsibility should the rental car meet with an accident.

      Nice insurance schemes there. In UK, insurance doesn't cover breakdown. Got to have breakdown cover separately. Then too repair costs are to borne by us. They only take it the garage and give us alternate transport options.
      If it's accident and vehicle immovable then things are even bad. Some insurance have weird rules like they would take car only for 20 miles, after which it costs.
      Why do people post I want the best for my car... When there isn't anything that is the best on the car to begin with.

      I have to pay for the repair costs myself if not accidental damage. My insurance too gives transport to the nearest workshop for your car brand. They take you to the dealership.
      If I have only third party insurance, I have to pay for breakdown cover but included in comprehensive insurance.

      Finally my car is repaired. They replaced all components related to the fan belt. Cost me an arm and a leg.
      I have a 5 year/100,000 km warranty on that job.
      It started snowing about 100 km north and my trips is cancelled. My friend who drove first is stuck up north on summer tyres.
      Whatever happened to global warming?
