Driving a classic car from Dublin to Cork - who do I call in case of breakdown?

    Like the title says - I want to be prepared in case I breakdown or have issues, what phone numbers should I bring with me?

    Check with your insurance company if you have breakdown insurance. Most classic car policies have breakdown cover and the number should be in your information schedule from the insurance company. Obliviously do the basic check before you leave such as fuel, oil and water along with any extras such as points, condenser and fan belts. If you are mechanically inclined, I always carry a tool kit with basic spares when I am on a long journey.

    If you've breakdown assistance than ring your insurance company but if not keep a few of different tow companies from Cork. As said above if your mechanically minded then a tool kit if something small happens
