    Hi,

    Welcome to the Fun!!

    I insure mine for breakdown overseas with RAC and it's cheaper. It is however extremely difficult to recommend any company, because individual circumstances vary so much.

    You also have to consider this information given to my son, by a friend who works in an insurance call centre;

    The price you are quoted can vary if the call handler has a headache/hangover, is in a good or bad mood, whether he likes the way you sound, likes or dislikes the model of motorhome, needs a cup of coffee of lunch, or has the supervisor looking at his screen.

    In other words, a lottery!!

    would you say £179 is a fair quote?

    It's certainly not unreasonable if the level of cover is what you need. You could undoubtedly get cheaper cover, but the benefits are reduced.

    Natasha,

    Have a look at ADAC there is a download on this site of the hand book in english http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/downloads/user-manuals/6/adac-translation-booklet-form-word-2003-130/

    ADAC web site

    There is also Campton I think they cover vans up to 20 year old http://www.campton.co.uk/pages.aspx?pn=BreakdownScheme

    This has been looked at on the site before http://www.motorhomefun.co.uk/continental-touring/18757-taking-older-motorhome-abroad.html

    I think you are too young for SAGA!!!!!!!!!!!!
