As of the 1st March 2023, owners will need to purchase their own breakdown & recovery policy that covers the vehicle and any driver. You may choose a provider of your choice or take advantage of a heavily discounted policy from the AA which will cover the car for private use as well as when it is on a booking with Hiyacar. The cover includes Home Start as well as recovery to any UK destination.
The discounted cost is £40.18 per vehicle per year, reduced from £207.50.
To purchase your new Breakdown and Recovery policy please follow these steps to make sure the discount is applied:
Click this link and you will be taken to a page that shows Car & Van breakdown cover for £207.50
Select the National Recovery (Relay) option and the price will reduce to £40.18
Press continue and finish the purchase
If owners do not wish to purchase this type of policy then they will receive 60% of the rental revenue instead of 70%.
Recovery mileage is a significant cost to the business and it is unsustainable for Hiyacar to continue to pay these when the main cause is generally wear and tear of owners' vehicles.
We value your partnership with Hiyacar and appreciate your understanding of this change. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to our support team.
Important note: Hiyacar does not receive any monetary benefit from AA policies sold
