TomTom has got it covered this Christmas

~ Twelve months’ free breakdown assistance with the TomTom ONE Assist and TomTom XL Assist ~

17 October 2008 – A TomTom sat nav device will get you to your destination quickly, safely and via the smartest route – but what would you do if your tyre suddenly blew or your engine broke down, while on that important shopping trip, or worse, on your journey home for Christmas?

For added peace of mind this winter, the TomTom ONE Assist and TomTom XL Assist (UK/Ireland and Western European versions) come with 12 months’ free car breakdown assistance included with every box*. From 23 October, the TomTom ONE Assist and TomTom XL Assist will be available from leading electrical retailers across the UK and Republic of Ireland.

With more than 30 million cars on the road in the UK, approximately six million calls are made to breakdown companies every year due to flat batteries, burst tyres or accidents. Of these millions of drivers, an astonishing 20% have no breakdown cover at all, adding to the stress if they do find themselves with a flat battery or stranded on a motorway hard shoulder. Furthermore, a breakdown can be even more alarming when driving abroad or far away from home.

So let TomTom take the worry out of driving, while you concentrate on the important things this Christmas.
