Land Rover Roadside Assistance – Vehicle Assistance When You Need It The Most
Being stranded on the side of the road can be a dangerous event in anyone’s life – the proximity of the other vehicles rushing past or the threat of potential robbery in some areas means that you should never be left without the availability of assistance when you need it.
Land Rover has created Land Rover Assist for our Owners – and is your 24/7 dedicated roadside assistance helpline. Should you need any roadside assistance with mechanical or electrical breakdowns – as well as minor roadside emergencies, which require an immediate response – Land Rover Assist is there for you.
Please note that depending on the model, benefits apply during the first 3 years or 100,000km; or 5 years 100,000km whichever comes first and are limited to your country of residence.
