    Howdi, I am a total newbie, got our camper last year and this will be our first trip to France. We live in Ireland so looking forward to some decent roads, only kidding we have some good roads honest I just know that if I can drive here I should be an expert abroad.
    My query is we have breakdown assist and that is so basic, is there a package that would cover for the accommodation and transport cost if our camper needs fixing for a few days. With four small kids it could turn out to be a very very expensive holiday if we had to pay for these extras. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanking ye in advance and Sorry if this question has been answered a thousand times.

    Mau

    Hello and welcome to the site.
    We have four young children, too. Please accept our commiserations.

    Have a look at this thread about ADAC breakdown insurance:


    ADAC

    We've just jumped on the bandwagon and bought the breakdown insurance this afternoon.
    It seems to be very highly regarded by just about everyone, everywhere!

    There's a download of the handbook in English here: ADAC Handbook (thanks to Braunston) :thumb:

    Good luck on your trip to France.

    Hi Mau

    If you are in ireland you may have insured through Dolmen as I am.

    If so, they claim to include european cover with their insurance.

    I say claim as I have been unable to get them to supply proof other than an assistance telephone number in a basic booklet about them. Nothing stated in this booklet gave a breakdown of the european cover supplied.

    ADAC Insurance

    Thanks to everyone for their assistance re above. The operatives are just lovely. What I cannot understand is that for 79 euro you have the plus membership can insurance be so cheap. At home it is at least 350. Am I missing something. Do I need to have other motorhome insurance on top of this cover.

    Thanking ye in advance for the help

    It's only breakdown cover, not motor insurance. You still need motor insurance.

    Yes it is a lot cheaper than say the AA or RAC covers including European use would be, but we wouldn't pay anywhere near 350 Euros for breakdown cover.
