RTR UK Ltd, the company that pushed the boundaries of breakdown recovery by creating ‘pay as you go’ cover, is now continuing to innovate by allowing its members to access the service at the touch of a screen through the Road To Recovery iPhone App.
The App uses the member’s phone’s GPS to locate their position and then puts them through to the RTR call centre who despatches local recovery to the scene. Thanks to the Road To Recovery scheme, which is free to join, the cost of recovery is 50-60% cheaper than contacting a local recovery operator direct because all RTR providers sign up to a fair pricing commitment. That is why more and more motorists and fleet operators are ditching traditional ‘pay whether you need it or not’ breakdown cover and taking the Road To Recovery.
Paul Hoyle, MD of RTR is used to breaking the rules;
"When we introduced a breakdown recovery scheme that you only pay for when you need it, our competitors thought we were mad. They trade on people’s fears but the reality is that most modern cars are very reliable and the chances of a breakdown are actually quite small. We decided that people shouldn’t have to take a chance and pay for a service they may not use but if they did need it that it should be priced fairly. We have now taken an innovative service and created an innovative way to access it through the App. We think it’s the future of breakdown cover!"
The Road To Recovery scheme works by providing a central link between recovery operators, who benefit from higher volumes of business, and motorists who are spared the cost of a service they may never use but have the reassurance that it is available should they need it.
Currently the App is available for the iPhone and will be available on the App store shortly. It is also in the process of being developed for Android phones.
RTR is a specialist accident assistance company that manages accident claims and provides replacement vehicles and legal support during the claim resolution, ensuring a rapid and effective conclusion.
It also works nationally with independent recovery operators to deliver Road to Recovery, an innovative low cost ‘pay only if you need it’ breakdown service that already works for hundreds of thousands of vehicle owners as a cost effective alternative to breakdown insurance.
