Product news – Get-you-home guarantee offered

Lloyds TSB Autolease has introduced a get-you-home guarantee to employers to ensure minimal disruption caused by company car breakdowns and accidents.

The fleet management provider is to provide a free replacement vehicle for 48 hours if breakdown service RAC is unable to repair the car on-site. Temporary vehicles are provided through National Car Rental and include vans where applicable.

Steve Phillips, head of supplier development at Lloyds TSB Autolease, said “Roadside recovery is [now] available from whatever point of breakdown, and in the case of accidents, if customers don’t want to drive, they can take rail. We’ve tried to cover all of the bases,” he said.

The service is available on a fixed monthly fee or on a pay-on-use basis.
