    Hi, we are registered with, www. motorassist.com Contact telephone number is -0845 964 5505 ( run/owned by G.E.) have used them once when out in ourT4 !
    Guy was there within the hour, could not fix at the roadside so ordered a recovery truck again it came very quickly.
    They have different rates for different cover/vehicles, we have the "extra" cover.
    Hope this helps

    I assume you have already checked to see if your uk recovery insurance covers EU?. The costs you quote are greater than I pay for fully comp inc. UK and EU accident and breakdown assist & recovery.
    Maybe look to change insurers get a credit from your existing company and re insure inc recovery etc.?

    If you have a Ford MH you get free breakdown through out Europe. I have tested it and it works!. We had to call them out when we were in the South of France and a REAL ENGLISH AA man and van arrived!!!

    Hi I have taken breakdown euro cover with RAC via c&cc web site . after reading about vehicles over 11yrs old not being covered as I only go abroad in motor home then cover would not be any good so rang customer services told me that as I was on arrival scheme then there were no restrictions at all no supplement to pay . have rung them twice now just of phone to them and been confirmed again that I am covered even though motorhome is older than 11yrs old .hope this is of use. Lesalan

    Just ring Barbara Lorenz or her colleague on 0049 9415 5673. Pay with card - covered from midnight of the day you join.
    Any vehicle you own or travel in will be covered.
