Which option: Roadside Assistance, Home Rescue or Recovery?

Roadside Assistance
This is the first level of cover available. It includes unlimited labour at the roadside for the repair of minor mechanical or electrical faults. All you pay for are the parts. If your car can't be repaired at the roadside then your cover includes recovery to the nearest garage or destination of your choice within a 10 mile radius of the incident. This does not include incidents at your home or within one quarter of a mile of your home.

Home Rescue
Roadside Assistance plus cover if the incident occurs at your home or within one quarter of a mile of your home. 

Roadside Assistance, Home Rescue plus cover to help with your onward journey if your car can’t be repaired such as hotel accommodation (for you and up to eight passengers), rail travel, chauffeur transport in the event of illness and a telephone message service to contact friends and family.
