3-year Roadside Assistance Plan

If your vehicle is stuck on the side of the road, has a flat tyre or won't start in the morning, one shared-toll call will set in motion the necessary assistance to get you going again or tow your vehicle, free of charge, to the nearest Ford servicing dealer.

In the unfortunate case of a collision, your car will be towed to the closest Ford Approved Body Repair centre. Should your vehicle be involved in a collision which results in injuries, the medical rescue service is set in motion, again by one shared-toll call.

And remember, it is just not you and your vehicle which are covered by this three year assistance plan, but also a member of your immediate family or any other legal/authorised driver or passenger in your vehicle. In the case of your vehicle experiencing battery related issues, we will assist you with battery assistance, below market rates, brought to you at no cost by FordProtect.

At Ford we care for you 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, wherever you are and whenever you need us. And remember it is the vehicle which is covered, not the owner, so any authorised driver or passenger can call for assistance. We care - 0861 150 250.
