As far as I know the Nationals don't. I asked about a tow car after a breakdown recovery and was told it wasn't possible. So wait for a reply from someone else who may have better news,

I may have to look for a tow car with a tow ball, but my insurance company has promised me a car, 'like for like'!
We have been in contact with Premier Assist who will be arranging said vehicle, so this should be interesting to say the least!

Fine

I reckon you may have better luck with a local one, but you may not get the kind of quality vehicle or vehicles as new as the big national companies!

We had a 'like for like' through Premier Assist after someone went very lightly into the corner of our X-Trail. They gave us a VW Tiguan. Very nice, but no towbar.

I wouln't hold your breath, you might end up a very funny colour.
