My mother in law will be driving her motorhome from Portugal over to the UK.
She needs breakdown cover for 3 days just for her trip back here.
I’ve just spoken to Greenflag but they can only cover her if her trip starts and ends in the UK.
Any ideas ?
The only option I can think of is to book a tunnel crossing which clearly she won’t be on so that way it looks like she has driven over there. It just means the cover will be for more than 3 days.

Take out a year's cover. Then cancel when you get home. Green Flag refund fully, pro rata.

Sorry to hijack this thread, but couldn't work out how to start a new one!
I'm about to travel to France to spend at least 8 months over there. Getting the motoring insurance sorted was no problem, but breakdown cover is proving to be another matter altogether.
Can anyone advise me on the best source for breakdown cover for a 19 year old camper, for long term (preferably 365 days abroad) breakdown cover? Tried the RAC through the Camping Club but my van's too old :(

We go to the Liverpool and Victoria . They cover our 28 year old van. They do seem to bother about age.

Thanks for that; I'll be giving them a call in a bit. However, the small print on their website suggests they only cover 180 days abroad. Worth checking with a human being if, like me, you need longer.
