    just got notification today that they are extending their European wide breakdown cover to cover other vehicles in this account package.

    It now includes Motorhomes up to 8 metres long.

    May be of use to some on here.

    :) I signed up last Friday and my change over from HSBC is starting today.... They did mention some changes were happening on the breakdown but they only had the old paperwork.. Looks like another bonus... (y)

    Does it state a weight ???

    @MJG1959 Thank's for the info, RAC due for renewal this Wednesday on the Motorhome so I can cancel it tomorrow before they take the payment. Had this Nationwide account for a while now but never bothered with the breakdown cover as we have AA cover for the car with another bank.

    This is presumably with the £10-a-month FlexPlus account, rather than the standard FlexAccount?

    Note.. there is a £100 recommendation bonus. £50 to recomender and £50 to the new account so if anyone is thinking of taking it maybe see if friends / family have accounts first..

    Have had a Flexacount for years with the Nationwide and they keep trying to get me to take the Flexplus acc. I keep telling them am more than capable of looking after my own money without paying them to do it for me. There is nothing in this world for nothing. Flexplus costs you £120 per year for them to look after your brass.

    Very true, however compared to the cost of the benefits it can be cheaper. I'm on flexaccount not flex plus. I get the breakdown but it doesn't cover me.. if that changes it could save me over 120 quid a year on its own making the account good value for money.

    Agree £12o a year but it our case it will be worthwhile.
    As we are having a joint account We will have 2 cars on breakdown cover, plus our daughter will be covered when drive our cars, got none at present and recently had an issue.
    My current HSBC account pays no interest, the flex plus will give 3% so that will offset against the charges.
    Travel insurance, although only max 30 days will compensate for closing old account that gave same cover.
    The free overseas withdrawals is a benefit as well as the appliance breakdown cover..
    The £50 i wil get after using my Bro in law as a recommender will also offset the cost. :)
    Will see how it goes..

    If you listen very carefully as you are reading the above, you can hear Dvorak's New World Symphony in the background,
    And yes my Dad was a great baker.

    Yes but for that £10 per month you get a lot of 'fringe' benefits, it's not just for 'looking after your money'.

    Apologies Steve yes that is correct it is the Flex PLUS account.

    I agree that you do get fringe benefits, but on principle banks have never had a brass farthing from me since they accused me of wanting to munger with there money some 40 odd years ago. Sometimes one has to pay for ones principles :cool:.
