Default Volvo XC60 Questions

Afternoon

Could really do with some help and advice. I pick up my new car on Saturday and need some advice with regards to a simcard for my car. At home i don't have a great signal so currently can only use Vodafone so does that mean i would need to stick with that for my car or when i am home can i connect the car to my Wifi at home?

What does the sim card actually give me, is it just up to date travel?

Also the breakdown cover that you get with the car what level of cover do you get?

You should be able to connect to wifi at home - which I guess is good but of limited use.

You can get some good sim deals at 3 - 20gb lasting usable within two years - they will connect to a 3/4g signal though so you will be fine as you move into signal range.

Insurance - get anything you want to pay for. I've got a fully comp quote for a year from Volvo for 360 which I think is reasonable for a 400 bhp car (mines a T8).

The breakdown cover is pretty comprehensive and includes European use as well. If you have it serviced at Volvo they renew the breakdown cover for the year as well.
