European Breakdown Cover with Motaquote

Motaquote isn't just about delivering great rates for car insurance - we can also offer terrific deals on breakdown cover.

Did you know that with Motaquote you can take out either UK breakdown or European Breakdown cover?

If you're currently booking your next holiday and looking to take a road trip with the family over to mainland Europe then breakdown cover is a must.

Think about it for just a minute - can you afford not to take out breakdown cover if you're driving around Europe? My guess is probably not.

A decent EU breakdown policy will include things such as roadside assistance & repairs, provide overnight accommodation if required, 24 hour vehicle hire and a number of other excellent benefits to help keep you on the road.

However, Motaquote goes a little further with it's breakdown cover and can even provide extra cover if you're towing a trailer or caravan as well as provide an emergency driver should the driver be taken ill or get injured whilst on the journey.

So our breakdown cover isn't just about getting your car going again - we offer so much more.

Small Business Confidence On The Up

It could be good news for Great Britain - a recent report suggests that with small business confidence on the increase we could see an improvement in employment rates.

Confidence amongst small business insurance policy holders is up, according to the Federation of Small Business (FSB), who have said that in spite of the increasing cost of overheads and issues gaining access to business finance small business confidence has bounced back from the all time low reported at the end of last year.

The report undertaken by the FSB shows that almost 50% of the 3,000 companies surveyed is expecting to see some form of growth over 2012.

Commenting on this John Walker, Chairman of the FSB, stated:

"It is a testament to the hard work and determination of the UK's small businesses that, in the face of rising costs and falling demand, they are still confident about the year ahead."

As business picks up over the next few months many small businesses could start looking to take on additional staff to help with work-loads.

Motaquote are dedicated to supporting small businesses around Wales and the UK. Motaquote guarantees to beat on shop insurance and office insurance.*

Liability Insurance Reforms Called For

The Association of British Insurers (ABI) has called for a change to the way in which employers’ liability and public liability insurance claims are handled.

This request for change has come about as a result of overzealous interpretations of health and safety legislation which has hampered growth of the UK economy and harms small business expansion.

The ABI claims that the current legal system encourages people to make exaggerated and, in some cases, fraudulent claims – which are fuelled by “no-win-no-fee” claims management firms. They believe that this has left UK businesses with high and disproportionate legal costs – which they pay for through their employers’ liability and public liability insurance premiums.

The Director of General Insurance for the ABI, Nick Starling, has stated that insurance companies play a very important role in allowing and encouraging small business to grow without the burden of red tape and other issues.

Mr Starling added that the ABI "has long argued for reforms to make our legal system more efficient, tackle spurious claims and relieve the burden on UK business.”

Following this the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) have stated that a healthy balance between protective regulation for employees and giving firms sufficient leeway to perform their roles well needs to be struck.
