AA, RAC, and other breakdown service apps
Breakdown apps are essential for the winter, because as the AA says, "Knowing when your Patrol will arrive is one of the most useful things in a breakdown situation".
No matter who your breakdown cover is with, there should be an app. The AA, RAC, and Green Flag all have apps available on Google Play and iTunes. As well as letting you contact your breakdown service easily and getting a call out, these apps have traffic status maps, route planners, essential numbers, and other important information for drivers. They can also pinpoint your exact location using GPS, so that your breakdown service knows where to come looking.
If you do not have breakdown cover, you'd be wise to take out a policy. Most policies are competitively priced and although a breakdown service won't be able to fix all issues at the road side, it will be able to toe you to a garage which can fix them, so long as where you are is accessible.
