    hi and welcome.

    I dont understand how the thread title (Class A Motor Home Service Agreement) and the posted text (Has anyone used Xtra Ride Insurance) relate to each other :RollEyes:

    Ah!!!! now i see what it is.

    an extended warranty contract/agreement for use when the manufacturers warranty has expired.

    as Jim said, it will be unknown in the UK being an American company, but we do have the equivalent extended warranties, which arent usually worth the paper they are written on. :Angry:.

    Have you had any experience of this as we are thinking of getting one for our car, is it worth it do you think? We wanted peace of mind should our car give us problems, we have too have a cambelt checked and a service done before they will accept us.At £278 for a year, we though that was good.no worries about mechanical problems for a year.

    Extende Insurance Warrenty

    When we purchased our Hymer, it came with a three year insurance warranty included in the package. We later found it cost £495.00 for the three year period.

    Can't recall there name of the provider just now, but it has turned out to be a good investment, they have paid for a new charger/controller and new rear suspension, we are well in pocket.

    Would I have purchased it independently?..........................no!!

    If its an AA backed one your in with half a chance, they are fraught with get out clauses, very strict on service intervals being maintained with tight overshoot millage and times ie miss a service by say 3 days or 200 miles then the warranty is totaly void, check very closely for phrases like " what is not covered is resulting damage" This could mean if your cambelt breaks they will pay for a new belt but not the damaged caused, you may get a bill for £1200
    and a cheque for £23:Eeek:
    Some items have to be physicaly broken, ie an alternator may not be paid for if it wears out, it has to break, same with starters etc.
    The biggest get out is you still have to Pay for diagnosis, ie has the clutch broken or worn out you pay for gearbox out to find out, if it just worn you pay to put it back with a new clutch, if its broken up they pay for new clutch you pay the rest:Doh:
    Also not all independent Garage will undertake warranty work, we wont,
    They pay book times only the last one we tried to help a customer with they wanted to pay me £12 labour to fit a starter motor the custoner would have to find any extra, ie removal and extra time for broken/seized bolts, removal of other stuff in the way etc the book says its a 15 min job, it is in the factory:RollEyes:Im afrai your car wont even cast a shadow on my workshop for £12:Rofl1:
    See where and how this is going:Doh:
    Some are good, some are just ok, some not worth the paper

    consider them like PPP

    I would consider them in line with payment protection plans or insurance.. or as a sieve .. full of holes (get out clauses).
