    First year almost over and it has been great.Planning our first European venture to Spain and France.
    AA have quoted £171 for a 3 week trip and an obscure web site £80. What advice would you give please ?

    When is your van insurance due,..??
    I think you will find many of us who go overseas often use companies like Safeguard and Comfort who include breakdown cover and it does the whole year so not problem with extended or regular trips..

    Worth getting a quote to have vehicle and breakdown combined..

    I'll second Tonka
    Contact your insurers, they'll almost certainly be able to add breakdown cover... and for far less than a ridiculous £171 for 3 weeks :Eeek:

    Caravan Club Red Pennant insurance, the best, but you get what you pay for!
