It can be upsetting to be stranded on the side of the road. That’s why we’re there for you when you need us. Whether you require fuel, help changing a tyre, some safe company, or a tow-truck, our Guardian Angels offer roadside assistance.

Roadside Emergencies

Whether you need a tow-truck after an accident or breakdown, fuel if you’ve run out, a flat tyre to be changed, help with a flat battery or just some safe company to wait with, our Guardian Angels are there to help and keep you safe.

Also included is towing to one of our secure towing destinations after an accident, along with expert collision procedure advice and towing to the nearest dealer after a mechanical/electrical breakdown, if you need it.

If you need help from one of our Guardian Angels, call 0860 10 42 12

Directions Assist

Directions Assist is a 24-hour helpline that provides direction guidance if you are travelling within the borders of South Africa. Think of it as a telephonic GPS navigation system, and all it takes is a phone call. Clear directions will be given telephonically while en-route or they can be emailed to you before you begin your journey.

Trip Monitor

You always consider the well-being of others, so you too deserve benefits that make sure your safety comes first. After a night out on the town or a long road trip, you might want to SMS your loved ones to let them know you have arrived home or at your destination safely. Alternatively, you could use Trip Monitor, which will contact you every 30 minutes to ensure that you are still safely en-route. Should contact be interrupted, a loved one will be informed, and the time and location of last communication conveyed.

What constitutes a roadside emergency?

A roadside emergency is any sudden, unexpected event away from your home. These are events that require immediate and/or urgent assistance to ensure the safety of your vehicle’s occupants or to limit/minimise or prevent further damage or loss to your vehicle. The Breakdown Assistance service has a maximum annual limit of three call-outs per insured vehicle.
