    Well I phoned them and the guy said never have and didn't cover them.. Even checked.. apparently.. well it is their loss now as I've got one more UK company to talk to and if they are no good it will be ADAC

    I have had Green Flag on my motorhome for years .. and have had to call them out twice in that time. Both times they arrived within the hour and sorted the problem out.

    We're with Greenflag but through the Caravan Club Mayday scheme which gives cover for larger caravans & motorhomes

    The CC cover is different to GF standard cover -that's why it's CC-GF -Same with RAC and RAC caravan and camping club (ARIVALS) ;)

    Be interesting to see what happens on renewal date then as I have not renewed the Caravan Club membership but would want to renew Green Flag. Will they notice and notify me of changes in my cover .. waiting with interest.

    Hi Joy have you got simply Green flag breakdown or have you got green flag mayday via caravan club ? if it's the later then it is run by and paid for by the CC so if you are no longer a member of CC then your green flag membership will have no cover --worth checking out ? Better to be sure rather than sorry :) I had the same problem a few yrs back when I took out RAC arivals via C&CC when asked over the phone they assured me no problems until I asked them to confirm in writing/email -It transpired that I had no cover except roadside assistance -no recovery because that bit was paid for by C&CC -long story but I got a refund and different cover else where :D

    Green flag do not cover motorhomes on the Continent whether you got it via the CC or not. Cover only applies to the UK. Perhaps that is where the confusion comes from.

    My wife and I have Green Flag personal cover (attached to her Fiat 500) and I specifically asked if I was covered whilst driving my motorhome and the reply was an emphatic 'YES'

    I've had no trouble with Green Flag, when the Clutch Pedal broke in the middle of Dartmoor (yes Fiat Ducattos have a plastic clutch pedal:doh:) they picked us up, drove to the garage, it was saturday, they could not source a pedal that day, then carried us to a CCsite, picked us up on tuesday, back to the Garage, Repaired and on the road again! For the just under £120 a year I think I got a bargain.
    In Europe "Red Pennant" which is another CC thingee, also very reasonable.

    A friend had a breakdown cover with the AA, His M/H was 5mtres 200 millimetre, they actually ran a tape over his unit and refused to pick him up, as he was over 5mtres!

    cant beat that RAC arrival scheme. It covers you personally, with family members a bit extra, in any vehicle you are in as a driver or passenger, vehicle any weight, any length. If it cant be repaired easily, Then takes you onto destination, and then after holiday, home. £42 yr for camping and caravan club, and £80 for arrival breakdown.
