We know a lot of plans goes into every Practical Caravan reader’s touring holidays, so it’s vital things go smoothly.

If you forget to pack your umbrella or the barbecue, it’s just a small setback.

But what if something really goes wrong and you end up breaking down on the way to your campsite, or during the rest of your trip?

The heat of the summer months can mean there’s more chance of breaking down. If that happens, and your caravan breakdown cover isn’t the right one for your needs, you could end up out of pocket.

You might even need to cancel your long-awaited caravanning break altogether.

Breakdown cover you can trust

So it might surprise you to know that not all breakdown cover will necessarily include your caravan.

Many standard car policies won’t take your caravan into account, potentially leaving you stranded on tour.

Some breakdown companies have size or weight limits, and lots won’t be able to transport your towcar and caravan in the event of an problem.

That’s why it’s crucial to go with a caravan breakdown cover provider that you can trust – and who’s more trustworthy than the RAC?

What’s more, Arrival Breakdown Cover from the RAC covers you whether you have a caravan hitched up or not.

So, no matter whether you’re driving to the local shops or planning a road trip to the Scottish Islands, you’ll be in safe hands.

Designed with caravanners in mind

Arrival Breakdown Cover has been designed in partnership with the RAC and The Camping and Caravanning Club.

As a result, you can be sure that caravanners’ needs are front and centre.

For starters, unlike many other companies, Arrival offers home rescue as standard.

That means, if you’ve not even left home yet, you’ll know you should soon be on your way.

With more than half of breakdowns taking place at home*, that’s certainly reassuring.

The RAC gets to most breakdowns in 60 minutes or less**, too, so you’ll be back on the road as soon as possible.

Let’s face it, 46,000 other campers can’t be wrong. More than 90% of them renewed their Arrival breakdown cover in 2022, too.

And with prices starting at just £11*** a month, your cover won’t break the bank in these cash-strapped times.

Free helplines, rewards and more

Caravanners will also love the many other great benefits that Arrival Breakdown Cover offers.

There’s a free 20-point car health check when you join****, free rewards worth up to £200, and free legal and accident help lines.

So why risk a breakdown and potentially ruining your well-deserved holiday this summer?
