    Can anyone recommend breakdown cover for an 8m van for six weeks in Spain?

    Hi the best way is doing it yearly with your insurance company when you take out the motorhome insurance, or if your a member of the camping and caravan club take out breakdown though them, but again it will be a yearly policy. Bob.

    Hello, be aware that breakdown cover in Europe merely means recovering the vehicle and taking it direct to the nearest garage or brand dealer,therefore,you can easily sort yourself out in phoning a garage/dealer.

    They don't do the RAC/AA side of road fix.

    we do ours through the RAC, annual policy, including UK and all of Europe with full recovery with no length weight limits

    being members of the C+CC got the no length / weight extension at no premium

    not sure what we pay, but have UK RAC cover anyway, so the European extension only adds a little

    we pay £229 / year, but that covers both of us in any vehicle anywhere in europe

    I've just renewed the Motorhome insurance and breakdown cover with Shield. The annual breakdown insurance is £75 for all Europe. Used it previously in Spain, excellent service.

    David I'm going to dig our paperwork out.

    We were talking about this at the weekend as us and some friends both have the c&cc RAC arrival. When I checked with the RAC regarding cover when we swopped to the mh we were told we didn't have the euro cover. Our friends do (and we've compared cards).
    I reckon we paid about £270 and our friends was over £400:Eeek:

    And yet you paid less than £230!

    I did double check ours, the £229 was exactly what we paid from our bank on renewal in June this year

    Unlike us to get a bargain, I will be interested in what you find out (y)

    I'll let you know. Ours includes the kids but I'm sure it's marketed that additional family members are free
