A GEM of an AppIn this modern world, anything to make life a little bit easier is always well received so it is welcome news that this week the UK’s no. 1 breakdown cover provider, GEM Motoring Assist, has launched an extremely handy iPhone and Android app.

Breaking down is stressful at the best of times but with the new App, GEM members can be safe in the knowledge that whenever they need immediate roadside assistance, GEM is there at the touch of a button! The new ‘Assist Me’ feature pinpoints your exact location and puts you directly in contact with a member of the GEM Motoring Assist contact centre, meaning that help will be on its way in the shortest amount of time possible – exactly what you wanted to hear, right?

What’s more, the new app also has a ‘Traffic Update’ button; making sitting in traffic jams an unnecessary evil of the past! You can view traffic alerts for your route; avoiding jams, accidents and road works…road trip anyone?

The App has many other useful features including the ‘My Renewals’ button which helpfully reminds you when important things like your breakdown cover, insurance and road taxes are up for renewal; ensuring you are always fully covered! Plus, click on the ‘Good Motoring’ tab for up-to-date news, polls and competitions on the GEM Motoring Assist website.
