    Hi all,

    Am thinking about getting myself some motorhome breakdown cover and was wondering if people would recommend any particular companies? I'll be in Europe for more than 90 days also.

    Cheers
    Jon

    if you have insurance through sureterm and your motorhome is less than 10 years old you have upto 90 days european breakdown cover automatically this covers any size or weight under no circumstances take cover out with the AA if your vehicle is over 3.5 tonnes as they will give you a policy for any vehicle even if you tell them its over 3.5 tonnes but will not recover it also try contacting the caravan club as they also do motorhome recovery but i do not know upto what weight they will cover hope this helps

    If you insure your van with SafeGuard, you can get 360 days cover for a pittance. I did!!!

    We are with Comfort and have (Fulltiming) 365 day UK and EU+ cover including breakdowns.

    We have just had to use it in the Lakes when our Fan Belt tensioner gave out. 100% all round from RAC Commercial 7m Motorhome at 4600kg loaded.

    Hi Jon. Try a google for ADAC english. Quite a lot of motorhomers are using them these days.
    I hope it helps.

    Hi Jon,

    We're with Safeguard, where the breakdown and recovery services are included, UK and Europe all year. Never had to use the breakdown, though, so I can't comment on that aspect of the service. Bizarrely, the breakdown/recovery service is supplied by the AA, even though it covers vehicles over 3.5. tonnes, which the AA would normally refuse (as mentioned in an earlier post).

    Safeguard's service generally is excellent - friendly people on the phone and at shows, who do what they say will. I rang once to tell them I was going abroad with the van. The reply was: "No need to tell us, you have a motorhome - we expect you to go abroad.":BigGrin:

    Good luck with your search
    Stephen
