“Breakdown - 19 August 2017”

Written on: 22/08/2017 by WestieWalker (1 review written)

Car would not start after overnight stay at Dunstan, Northumberland. Called Britannia Rescue around 1000am, who advised AJK Thompson (Seahouses) would attend. Around 30 minutes later technician arrived and diagnosed defective battery. I was concerned that the nearest battery fitting locations all closed around 1230 on Saturdays. The technician phoned a local supplier, then obtained authority from Britannia Rescue to go and collect and fit new battery. Many thanks to Britannia Rescue and… Read Full Review

“Noble Autos, Littlehampton”

Written on: 22/06/2017 by DorsetHolland (1 review written)

Called Britannia Rescue on 13th Jun as my car had lost all electrics. The main man from Noble Autos was on the scene within the hour and diagnosed a faulty alternator. A replacement battery got us moving again as far as their garage in Littlehampton, where Nobles made every effort to get us back on the road in time for our Gatwick flight. Unfortunately, despite fitting a new alternator, other complications (and time constraints) meant we had to leave the car with them and collect it the next… Read Full Review

“Excellent service, amazing mechanics attended”

Written on: 10/06/2017 by PRosindell (1 review written)

My car broke down with a major fuel leak whilst visiting Dumfries from Nottingham, I was advised the breakdown recovery would attend within 90 minutes, Border Cars Dumfries arrived within 30, the mechanic soon found the problem and repaired it. When the car wouldn't start due to engine management issues he persisted and finally got it started, the car was then taken to their garage to be wash due to diesel contamination. This service was OUTSTANDING… Read Full Review

“Flat battery”

Written on: 24/10/2016 by Sushi.gupta (1 review written)

Over a 2.5 hours waiting period for someone to come and have a look and sort it in a few minutes. I live in central London so this should have been a 0 minute job. They use different companies and don't have any of their own vans etc. Certainly won't recommend and I will be cancelling my policy tomorrow. Not acceptable… Read Full Review

“Damage to my car”

Written on: 11/10/2016 by g.hodg (1 review written)

I broke down on my way to holiday towing a caravan. The breakdown driver suggested a garage to me in Leeds and a hire firm and said he would take me to pick up the hire vehicle to get me on my way again and then he would take my car to the garage. Everything fine until I went to pick up my car to be told the breakdown driver had damaged my car. £800s worth of damage. Britannia are refusing to pay and blaming the garage. They have just washed their hands of it and told me its my problem. As… Read Full Review

“Overcharging, patronising charlatans ”

Written on: 30/09/2016

Failed to liaise with my insurance company, gave me the wrong price and refused to let me listen back to the call. Terrible patronising communications, take days and several reminders to get back in touch. What a horrible service run by incompetent money grabbing fools, would not recommend to anyone… Read Full Review

“Britannia rescue and assist”

Written on: 20/09/2016

The agent sent by Britannia was professional, knoiwledgeable, friendly and spent much, much longer than the "usual 15 minutes" trying to get my car working again. He also explained everything he was doing and why. Local knowledge was excellent, as he knew both the garage I'd arranged to have the car taken to and once at the garage stayed to explain what he'd tried and observed about the car. If you have to break down then hope to get someone as excellent… Read Full Review

“Absolutely abysnmal service”

Written on: 12/09/2016 by PCshedman (1 review written)

In the past the service has been excellent but was badly let down when needed most. From call out to pick up 5 hours just off a motorway slip road at night for a lone female. A comedy of errors and very stressful. I complained and left my contact number-never heard back from them. Avoid - they do not seem to have the number of agents to call upon throughout the country… Read Full Review

“Excellent recovery!”

Written on: 10/09/2016

This was my first time using Britannia Rescue as I have never broken down before and I was very pleased with the service I received. I called the helpline as soon as I was on the hard shoulder, the operator was very helpful and supportive, as I had no idea where I was on the motorway as it was pitch back and there was no nearby indicators except an SOS phone. She gave me clear instructions on what to do and reassured me as I was on my own and tired from working all day. They managed to… Read Full Review

“Called out Brittania Rescue for the first time ever...”

Written on: 23/06/2016 by McMahansc483 (1 review written)

Called out Brittania Rescue for the first time ever today. My car had intermittent problem with starting. Someone turned up complained they had sat in a traffic jam for half an hour and turned up for me and the car would start!!! Explained that when previously tried to start it just made clicking noise. Reply that it was working now and couldn't tell me what the problem was because it had now started. Didn't open the bonnet and just talked to me like I was a silly women . I asked what the… Read Full Review

“Poor support for the local area”

Written on: 08/06/2016 by FlightSmooth (2 reviews written)

When I subscribed yet again to Britannia Rescue this year for again the comprehensive rescue package, it took a flat tyre for me to learn that the service provision in my area (Worcestershire) has diminished to one agent... No one at Britannia made me aware of this when I paid my subscription. The agent arrived after two and a quarter hours, but the service contract is for a customer to be assisted within one and a quarter hours. The agent was supposed to ring me to keep me informed but no call… Read Full Review

“Cancelled my membership ”

Written on: 13/02/2016 by tricia7777 (1 review written)

I have been a member of Britannia since 1992 - I had their personal cover. About a month ago I received a letter from ASDA / LV saying I had not made a payment for my cover. I queried this as at no time have had a policy with ASDA ( i had to reiterate this several times). I really didn't get a satisfactory answer - but they did have my account details & said they would take a payment as normal. They said they were in the process of changing systems & i was still with Britannia. I received a… Read Full Review

“BRITANNIA RESCUE BREAKDOWN COVER BEWARE”

Written on: 21/01/2016 by nitmar (1 review written)

I took out a European Breakdown policy through the Civil Service Motoring Association with Britannia Rescue, part of the Liverpool Victoria Group. I feel as many people as possible need to know that Liverpool Victoria are not an honourable company with whom to do business, having designed a system to insulate them from repercussions when things go wrong for their customers. When my vehicle broke down in Italy, after initially reporting the incident to Britannia Rescue, they then passed the… Read Full Review

“Prompt & Courteous Service”

Written on: 17/01/2016

This is my second year with Britannia Rescue linked with LV Motor Insurance. The excellent customer service when requesting assistance for Home Help was very reassuring. I had to request Home Assist as I could not remotely unlock the Car even using the spare key, I even replaced the existing Battery with a brand new battery and still no unlock, may have been a Flat Battery but this was brand new from 12 months ago so was surprised at that so had to call out Britannia Rescue, they arrived very… Read Full Review

“Surprisingly Good this time”

Written on: 14/01/2016 by 007jrb (1 review written)

Got stuck last weekend because of a faulty starter motor, response was fairly quick considering the previous callout last year for a failed clutch took about two hours to arrive. I was pleasantly surprised to see the flashing hazards on the breakdown van arrive after just 29 mins. The diagnosis was also very quick and after 10-15 I was happily on my way. Although many reviews seem to be relaying horror stories of what happened in their experience I can only say that on this occasion Britannia… Read Full Review
