Check how many it covers

Anyone else use/rely on this cover, rather than fork out for each vehicle?

The T&C may have changed but I understood cover was for one vehicle for an individual account and two vehicles for a joint account not for "all your cars and MH".
It is still a great saving, especially with the interest gained on the account.

Another thread has prompted:


The flexi plus account is also excellent for Euros, credit card usage, incurs no fees and is converted at bank rate.
Debit card, no fees for withdrawing Euros at bank rate from the holes in the wall.

Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've just signed up. I'm a fan of Nationwide. My account is always in credit so I'm not worried about charges but real benefit for the travel insurance, mobile phone insurance and eu recovery. I still have Fiat Cover but when my windscreen got chipped last year I had no service unless I drove to the glass depot. This van recovery does it for me and the weight and length limits are really generous.

We had had an ordinary Nationwide Flexaccount for 30+ years. We considered the Flexplus account when it came out, but at the time the £120 a year charge wasn't worth it to us.

But then Nationwide extended the breakdown cover to MHs as well as cars, and it covers all of Europe. So we changed to the Flexplus account.

Less than a month later, we were pulling a trailer behind the MH on the M6, when one of the wheels on the trailer seized! The Nationwide breakdown service was great, sent a guy with a low loader to collect the trailer and take it to a trailer repairer. It took a while for the rescue man to get to us, as traffic was very heavy, but someone from the Nationwide breakdown service rang every 20 minutes or so to check we were ok.

We both felt awful having to use the service so soon after changing to that account, as we have had breakdown cover with other providers for 40+ years, and never had to use them once!

But hats off to Nationwide, they were great on this occasion, and we have always trusted them for banking.

I think Nationwide have some sort of decency code which keeps them above the rest, they will have some customers with problems, but it's how they deal with them which counts in the end.

Picking up on kenp's point about limitation to one vehicle - my understanding is that the cover relates to the individual, when travelling in any eligible vehicle. Have I misunderstood, or is there something other than size, weight etc that applies a limit?

Can anyone who has such an account and cover post a link to where the details are, we're on page two and none the wiser as to exactly what is covered, perhaps there is more than one level of cover.

From their advert:

UK & European breakdown cover for you in any vehicle registered in the UK and also anyone driving your vehicle with your permission. Vehicles being used for hire and reward purposes (such as taxis) are excluded. Please see your policy document for full details on vehicle eligibility and criteria.

From their definition of a vehicle (p4 of "full document"):

any vehicle registered in the UK, being driven by or carrying the
Nationwide FlexPlus account holder(s) or a vehicle registered in the UK
and owned and registered to the account holder(s), which is being used
with the permission of the account holder(s) and does not exceed any of
the following dimensions when fully loaded:
- Caravans and trailers - 8 metres in length (including A-frame).
- Motorhomes - 8 metres in length or 7.5 tonnes in weight.
- All other vehicles - 7 metres in length, 2.3 metres in width,

IF you have a bit of money to invest, Nationwide also operate an "instant access savings account" which pays 5% (the best I've found) for the first year. You can pay in upto £500 per month, withdraw (via internet - transfer to another account eg current account) as much as you want then top back up later in the month.

I'm still kindly offering to "recommend a friend" in order to get some more £100 each rewards! - Gordon

FROM MEMORY: Last year it was limited to one vehicle per account holder, so this is an improvement.

Just realised that you asked for a link:

http://www.nationwide.co.uk/products...s-and-benefits

gets you to their main advert page:

Click on "Find out more"

then "important information"

then "download full policy document"
