    Hi
    Does anyone have any recommendations regarding this type of cover. Got this a cheap price last year through caravan & Camping Club, but was not happy as we have dogs and was told if we break down if 'the drivers doesn't like dogs he won't recover you' looking for a more animal friendly recovery company, anyone got any advise/experiences.

    They don't HAVE to allow animals in the cab but would normally put pets in the van so your choice.
    I would think this applies across all providers.
    Certainly did when I did recovery but I allowed lap dogs in the cab providing they stayed on the owners lap.
    I wasn't spending time hoovering dog hairs from the seats and floor before the next job.

    It’s an annoying fact of modern life that we all have to do the ring around for new quotes every year for everything!:mad:
    Not sure if you are just looking for breakdown or for renewal of insurance. I have gone with Comfort this year with £50 extra for U.K. and European breakdown and recovery.

    Not sure about the dogs issue but I will be changing from Caravan Guard at renewal as my experience of their breakdown cover has not been good. When our van wouldn't start after we stopped in a layby on the A1 they sent out a teenager with a battery booster and a bottle jack and little else and he was unable to diagnose anything except a recovery truck which had towbar scraping difficulty getting the van on the back to transport to Camper UK. Then they were less than helpful when Camper UK were unable to look at the Van and we needed to go elsewhere. They said we couldn't be moved twice for the same issue (fair enough I suppose) but when I said I would pay they said we were too big.
    I will probably go back to Safeguard if they are competitive now I will be new business rather than existing customer.

    we have roadside insurance with these https://www.first4recovery.co.uk/ very easy to deal with and cover everything at well less cost than the others, not had to use the service so cant comment how good they are at the actual job.

    I would say that applies to most businesses these days, sadly. :(
