    There is a translation to English in the downloads section provided by papajohn I think. just check the phone numbers though as some are out of date.

    As Wildman says there is a lot of info on ADAC in the continental touring section and there is the English translation there as well.
    I have called them out twice, once in Switzerland and also the other day
    in Herefordshire where I got caught in a flood and got water into the cylinder head. The AA came out as they are the ADAC partner in Britain and towed me to the garage.

    for around the same price as green flag, both my wife and I are covered in any vehicle we are in be it driving or as a passenger. Europe 365 days cover, plus all of the repatriation benefit in the event of illness or family distress, lots more benefits as well but plough through it all the plus includes spouse who gets her own membership number and the same benefits.
    No one else comes close to the same cover.

    What number did you call and who did you speak to? Because that information is wrong.

    The only problem I have with their policies is that as a UK member, I am not covered in Germany itself, which is annoying.:Angry:

    Well.. Its strange because Evelyn Kunz on
    00 49 22 14 72 74 44 has been signing people up from the UK in the last month.
    It's a bit of a worry how this sign up thing has gone.. as the Adac membership is better than any offered in the UK.
    Luckily there are no issues with renewals.

    i agree its much better than anything on offer in UK,

    i used that number and was passed to a Guy, he took my details and said i would be contacted.
    the above is what i got back, not wanting to let it rest i made 2 further atempts over a couple of days, always the same reply... you must contact the AA.

    ok this was in late January but thats only a few weeks ago.

    if any one can squeeze in good luck to them:thumb:

    i will try again next renewal though:Blush:
