  • Chipped, cracked or broken windscreens
  • Damaged tyres or punctures
  • Lost keys
  • Damage to underside of vehicle
  • Damage to the roof of the car if you are not involved in an accident - so instance if you scratch the roof by placing goods on it or damage caused by a car park barrier.
  • Roadside assistance for the above types of incident
