    As a Newbie... how do you guys get breakdown cover for more than 90 days in Europe... or do you not bother?
    It seems you cant have it for stays of more than 90 days outside UK.
    very puzzled....
    I did get the RAC to qoute for a single trip of 5 months but I shant tell you how much, dont want any funsters having heart troubles.

    When this came up in another similar thread I suggested having two different breakdown firms one to start cover after the first one finished, don't know if it was tried but seems workable to me

    Or thinking about it don't see why the same firm couldn't do another 90 days after the first one

    Thanks Funsters......
    Have just had a chat (2 Jun 15) with LV Britannia Road Rescue on 0800 591 563... They confirmed that 180 days cover would cost £130.
    Max dimensions 8m length, 2.3m wide by 3m high and 7.5tons in weight.
    Any 180 days (even consecutive days) out of a year contract would get you:

    A relief driver if you were to ill to drive
    Home recovery in UK
    Breakdown roadside cover and return to your home from Europe.
    Temp car / hotel during a any repair
    Full UK cover too....

    Sounds good to me!:):cool:
    Thanks for all your help guys...(y)
