    Anyone out there knows if there is such a thing as European Breakdown Cover, I have just recently bought an American RV and although these companies brag about covering any vehicle any size, When it comes to the nitty gritty!! Any size means No longer than 8mtrs, Height 3.5mtrs and weight 4350kgs!! Need Help!!:cry:

    Do the Caravan Club run the Scheme as well? I thought is was the Camping and Caravan Club that ran the <Arrival Scheme>

    Yes it's the CC&C and yes they will recover any size of motorhome.

    I have insured my 34' Monaco Windsor with the RAC and they confirmed this too even in the case of an accident!!!

    Gordon,
    I think you may be getting confused by now.

    You need to join The Caravan & Camping Club HERE
    You then go to the RAC & tell them you want to join the arrival scheme as a member of the CCC. You will get cover as stated earlier. :thumb:

    I had a puncture in Barcelona & the jack was usless so called RAC & was on my way in 40 mins, including directions from the "mechcanico" that fixed us up. :clap:

    We joined the C&CC and the RAC Arrivals scheme and are we glad we did!! Two blown tyres on our 33ft Damon Intruder just as we were approaching the M25 on our way back from Normandy. Recovered all the way home to sunny Doncaster on a low-loader. Premium was worth every penny that day!!! :BigGrin::BigGrin:
