Saga is a financial services company which specialises in serving over-50s. It offers insurance, retirement planning products and savings accounts, as well as car breakdown cover.
In this guide, we’ll explore the benefits of Saga breakdown cover and the cover options available.
Saga offers five levels of breakdown cover. They’re listed below in order of affordability, with the cheapest first.
You can choose to add additional vehicles to your policy, protecting other vehicles in your household at a discounted price.
You can also purchase personal cover, which protects you and your spouse no matter what car you or they are driving.
If you break down, call 0800 068 1966 for assistance. You’ll have to provide various details of your policy, your vehicle and where you are.
Saga says a breakdown expert will be with you within an average of 57 minutes, and on 8 out of 10 occasions they’ll be able to repair your vehicle at the roadside.

Saga has attracted over 17,000 reviews on Trustpilot. In January 2021, it had an average rating of 4.6 out of 5 (spanning all its products and services). In Finder’s 2021 customer satisfaction survey, it was mid-table. Several customers said service was good. However, one respondent felt cover was “inflexible”.
Saga provides a comprehensive car breakdown service with five policies to choose from, but it’s available to over-50s only and the call-out wait time appears longer than some.
Get started by visiting Saga’s website and sign up for a policy. If you have read this review and decided that Saga breakdown cover is not for you, you can also compare other breakdown cover policies on the market.
