    Hi all, I am with RAC ARIVAL and although I have been more than happy the date is looming for renewal.Is there anything that gives the same cover cheaper :BigGrin:
    I want over 3.5 ton (4.2) recovery and cover for any vehicle I am driving namely the car :Rofl1: No overseas required
    Presently paying around £90 ish and then got to pay C&CC at just short of £40 which I can do without this year if I have to :Wink: because we only use a couple of small sites and can find alternatives/wild
    terry
    PS the personal cover limits the alternatives

    Cheers Geo :thumb: but I think they only cover vehicle and not personal --- Not 100 % sure but it may be only RAC & AA who do personal cover :thumb: unless funsters know better :BigGrin:

    ADAC covers the member, so any vehicle you drive from scooter to motorhome will be eligible for their service which, in the UK, is provided by the AA.

    Email this lady or give her a ring.

    stefanie.schleifer@adac.de

    0049 89 7676 2636

    She is highly professional, speaks perfect English and will answer any queries you may have. You can join over the phone using a Credit/Debit card and your membership will start the next day with cards etc arriving within a week.

    If you google ADAC and then use the translate button you will see the different levels of service and the MH height/length/weight restrictions. If you email Fr Schleifer she will email you a translation of the levels of cover.

    We have PartnerPlus which covers us throughout Europe with some very extensive levels of cover eg air medivac.

    RESULT--- Phoned RAC up today with the intention of cancelling and joining the ADAC people :thumb: Long story short- went through the press 1 -etc to get put onto a nice young lady who asked why I was leaving - told her I had no problem with the RAC but did not want / need the C&CC @ £40 so was leaving to join the ADAC--- She said if I stayed with the RAC I could have the ARIVALS membership for £53.50 :thumb: and seeing as I am still a member of C&CC until next month at renewal time I did not have to still be a member of C&CC saving the £40 on that
    rac renewal £87.50
    NEW PRICE £53.50
    = £34 SAVING PLUS £40 ISH on c&cc this year = £74 ish saving total
    I will reserve joining the ADAC for next yr :thumb::thumb: SPOKE TO A LADY FROM THERE AND IT SOUNDS VERY GOOD COVER

    I would not be suprised that in order to benifit from the Arival scheme current C&CC membership is a requirement (small print) and membership card shown at the same time as RAC card to the recovery man:Doh:
    Ask them to confirm in an e-mail what has been said, belive a telephone conversation at your peril

    :Eeek::Eeek::censored:2:swear: Got a call from RAC man and they have now said C&CC is a must for recovery they made a mistake :Angry: Told him I wanted to speak to a supervisor (complain spoke to 2 different people and 3rd to apologize) and to stick the membership (30yrs plus) where the sun don't shine :BigGrin: Apparently they would still offer roadside assistance but not recovery = no good
    So it now looks like ADAC gets a call tomorrow or Monday :thumb:

    You get a lot for your bucks with ADAC

    You get one hell a lot for your bucks with ADAC.. the UK cover is provided by the AA and it covers all Europe and countries joining the med... it is a lot more than just a breakdown service and my wife is covered..any car, any camper (in my case a 5.5 ton Winnebago RV)..

    Very very comprehensive cover.

    Hi guys :thumb: I have done it :BigGrin::thumb: Joined ADAC 2 mins ago -Sent Stefanie a email with address details so it only took 2 mins for her to answer my questions and grab my money :Rofl1: (79.50 EUROS) off my credit card.:thumb: She is forwarding all info via email (to-day)and through the post within 2 weeks.Dead simple to do :thumb:

    The RAC rang me Saturday morning and said sorry but they had made a mistake :Angry:I explained I would have been running around thinking I was covered but would not have been :Eeek:It appears the RAC only covers up to 3.5 ton and the C&CC pays for anything above that hence you have to be a member of both --- they must split the money you pay to the RAC :Smile:--ANYONE on Arivals must show the RAC membership and C&CC card to get anything more than roadside assistance.
    Thanks Geo :thumb: for reminding me of my own golden rule - Nothing can be said that cannot be written :Wink:

    I think i have been ripped off
    My RAC arrivals cover was £170 for the year plus my C&CC membership
    i paid the renewal as i do travel to Europe at least once a year so need the cover

    any one else pay more or less for their RAC arrivals cover ???

    would be interesting to see who pays what

    i have a 1999 Georgieboy pursut 7.4 v8 petrol +LPG con
    4.59Kg 27 feet long value £25K 7 years NCB

    insurance renewal was £670 road tax £180p/a

    so just over £1,000P/A for all the up front costs

    I've just got RAC breakdown recovery and then I find out that the RAC has been flogged to a private equity firm. Only one thing can happen and they will flog off sections and I wonder what; other than the name, will be left
