Britannia Rescue was founded by the Civil Service Motoring Association (now trading as Boundless by CSMA) in 1983, and since then our service has evolved, providing breakdown services to the public, large organisations and financial and insurance brands. In 2007, Britannia Rescue joined the LV= family.

Our breakdown office is based in Huddersfield and this is where we operate our call centre and 24 hour breakdown line.
