Unlike most providers, GEM only offers personal-based cover. This can be much cheaper for those using multiple vehicles, although often expensive if only using one.

Our Review

There are more than 60,000 members that use GEM Motoring Assist and as the firm has more than 75 years of experience, it's safe to say it's going to be around for much longer. However, they're unique to most other providers as they only offer personal cover which can be a big benefit to some motorists. This means that no matter what vehicle you're driving you can have the benefit of being covered against any breakdowns.

Large Network

With 6,000 recovery vehicles nationwide, access to 1,200 garages and priority given to those travelling with children or alone, GEM Motoring Assist is one of the most comprehensive breakdown cover companies in the UK. It takes on average 40 minutes for a breakdown specialist to arrive at your stranded vehicle and as there is 24-hours assistance that is available 365 days of the year, and low personalised plans, it's a small price to pay for so much peace of mind.

Club Membership

Being in the GEM Motoring Assist Club also means you receive a free quarterly magazine, discounts on certain products and services, as well as a free accident management service. All of these features coupled with a short response time and the ability to add an extra driver to your policy for free, is enough to make you want to join the 60,000 members. As the Auto Express 'Best Breakdown Cover 2011' award winner, it's no wonder that GEM Motoring Assist is fast becoming one of the most popular breakdown cover providers.

Avoid Risks

No matter what car, van or motorbike you have, there is always a chance of it breaking down. Not everyone has the skills, tools or ability to fix a car by the side of the road, and for only a low annual fee, you can have a network of fully-trained professional mechanics and technicians just a phone call away. In just 40 minutes you can be found and have your car back on the road within no time at all. As 70% of repairs can be fixed by the roadside there is no need for having your car recovered and taken to the nearest approved garage, so you can be on your way quickly.

Cover Summary

Remember, it's not the vehicle that's covered it's the person, so it doesn't matter what car, van or motorcycle you are driving in order to receive roadside assistance.
