I'm looking for breakdown cover for use in Europe. I plan to be out of the UK for 9-12 months.
Will anyone issue me breakdown cover for the full length of my trip? If so who?
How do the full timers do it?
We like many other motorhomers have our breakdown cover with the motorhome insurance. We are with Comfort (Norwich Union) and the recovery is with the RAC. It costs us £55 on top of the insurance premium.
We are covered for 365 days anywhere in the EU and beyond if a Manual Green Card is issued.
I'm looking into getting insurance with Equity Red star through Sureterm and long term european breakdown cover will only be an extra £89 taking my total to £654 - not bad I thought being under 30 and having not owner a motorhome before.
Anything I should be looking out for in the fine print when it comes to european breakdown covers as an added extra?
Go with Safeguard. My insurance which includes unlimited european breakdown cover for our large Bessacarr 745 costs me a fraction over £300 fully comp no restrictions whatsoever, no time limits abroad. No extras to pay for.
I have been with them for 6 years and they have never let me down.
they include full euro breakdown and when things do go wrong you call them and get a real human with a brain to sort it all out straight away.
In other words, they deliver what they say they will.
Rare but true !
ADAC a German motoring organisation do European Breakdown that includes UK (they have a reciprocal arrangement with the RAC I believe)
I remember a Guy breaking down in UK, phoned ADAC rescue (English speaking operative) in France and was rescued by RAC all within 40 mins.!
Annual membership cheaper than UK organisations but only available on line for us Brits. Cheers..
