Do stress to the recovery agent that your vehicle is the size and weight it is, as some take your money but then refuse to recover you due to your size.

Even after you have purchased your cover, write to them to check as I found my initial enquiry with the RAC that they claimed that I wasn't covered, even though I stressed the size of my vehicle when my cover was purchased with my vehicle insurance. :x

After complaining to RAC customer services that they had taken my money even though they knew they couldn't recovery me, one of the 'top floor' managers wrote back and apologised that the first letter writer had made a mistake as I was covered on a special policy. :D

:? Many thanks, I have heard of similar happenings in the past and that's why I put the size of my Roadstar on when I asked for help on this subject, so hopefully anyone saying a company was good meant they covered what they take the money for.
Kind regards. Jinks

If you are a member of the Caravan and Camping club the RAC do a special scheme for members called "Arrival" with no limits on weight or length.

Breakdown cover

After trying RAC and others I finally ended up with Caravan Club Mayday and found them to repair if possible by the road, first and when they can't they do without hassle move you by that same agent on to where you are going, and even will bring you back if they can't fix you. All for £60

UK & Europe Breakdown recovery

:( You are quite right, Mayday only covers UK. You have to have their Red Pennant for Europe which is a lot more expensive.

Comfort Insurance offer RAC breakdown at a very reasonable rate, it is often worth tying the two items together
