This post will be flirting with danger but... I have been motorhoming all over Europe for over twenty years in many different vans and have never ever bought breakdown or recovery cover. The inevitable happened in 1999 when the main bearings went on my Iveco 60-10 on the Salamanca ring road. It cost me €450 to have it transported to my destination (Coimbra, Portugal) where I lived in it on and off for 6 months before it went off to the big parking space in the sky... I calculate my costs to be approx €18 a year.... How much is an All Europe recovery policy (for older vans?) JJ.
