We currently do not have breakdown cover for our vehicle/caravan.



Can anyone suggest a company?



Thanks - Lolly x

Hi lolly,

We have the CC Mayday breakdown cover - Green Flag. We've never actually had to use it. I read a thread on here somewhere that if you don't use one of the club covers, you are restricted on the length of your outfit should you need recovery. No doubt somebody can offer a bit more advice on that. I think the C&CC uses RAC.

Yes, RAC Arrival gives excellent cover - we have used it twice (in about 15 years!), once in Spain, once in France. We have never so far had to use it in the UK for the caravan, but have used it here for the ususal car-related problems, when we have had the normal RAC service.

Breakdown cover is included in my car insurance with Zurich. Car and caravan rescue insurance is with More Than which was cheapest on the internet that met my requirements including continental cover. I have never had to call upon them - touch wood - so cannot comment on standards of service .

I have had to use "Mayday" through the Caravan Club on 3 occasions ( 2 with caravan attached ) and found the service first class. On both times with the caravan there was no problem with taking us on to our destination,leaving the caravan on site and taking the car on to the garage for repair. I feel it is excellent value for the money.

Hpoe this will be of help to you and that whatever company you finish up using you won't require their services.

Lolly,



I have just switched from Rac to Mayday, the main problem with RAC is that if it is your caravan that need recovery the RAC don't want to know, if your car is broken down they will recover both but if there is no problem with the car they will not just recover the caravan.

we are in the process of changing from the AA to Cc mayday. saves 20 quid a year and guaranteed recovery of caravan in the event of a breakdown / accident. after reading small print AA cant guarantee this and definitely not if theres a fault with just the caravan

Nobody's mentioned Mondial Assistance, which sent me details of their service in the autumn and seemed a good bet for the new season. Can't vouch for them as i haven't signed up yet, but they offer stand alone caravan breakdown recovery cover for
