At Footman James we know how important classic car breakdown cover and classic motorcycle breakdown cover is, which is why we have launched a brand new standalone breakdown policy just for classic car and bike owners. This breakdown policy has been developed in partnership with AXA Assistance, to service over 1,000,000 classic vehicles which are 20 years or older and on the road today.

The Footman James breakdown cover has been specifically developed for classic cars and classic bikes, so if your pride and joy does breakdown and cannot be repaired at the roadside you can choose to have it repatriated at a garage of your choice. Breakdown cover is also available as a standalone product to all non Footman James customers.

Research* has indicated that many ‘traditional’ breakdown service providers either may not cover vehicles aged 20 years and over, or may charge an additional premium. We are concerned that some classic owners may be driving around in their pride and joy relaxed in the knowledge that they are covered should they breakdown, when in fact they are not covered at all.

Classic car and bike owners can purchase breakdown cover either online, or by calling the Footman James team on 0345 894 7887, with premiums starting from as little as £68, with specialist rates available for club members**.

* The classic survey took place in November 2012 and the sample comprised 2,829 classic vehicle owners from the Classic Motor Show and via a web survey.

** Terms and conditions apply.

Very easy transaction over the phone to purchase a classic vehicle breakdown. Price wise it is a very reasonable policy which covers transportation to destination or home even in Europe. I have not yet used the breakdown so cannot comment on that particular service.

Excellent personal service from the Collector's policy team.
Great cost and quality of service - can't recommend highly enough.
Breakdown cover service (managed by AXA) not so good and not joined up but resolved by contacts on the Collector's policy.
