    Hi.
    Red Pennant is bullet proof,two of our friends have been "Saved" by them,one having to have serious heart surgery in France,his wife was put up in an hotel near the hospital,later,the two of them were brought back to England and his unit recovered through R.P contacts back to his home.The other had a "Wheel malfunction" (It came off !),damage to the unit,he was put up in a static c/van on a site near the repairer,his choice and R.P. did all the chasing/paper work..
    This may be common practise with insurance companies,hopefully neither you or i will ever have to find out,but in the C/van days and only 5 weeks away a year,it was Red Pennant for us.
    We are with Safeguard now and hope we never need them,LOL.

    We have had Red Pennant for the past 10 years and used it 3 times for minor problems with blow outs and an engine fault and every time they have been excellent, takes all the worry out of it.

    Red Pennant are great. They introduced us to motor homing when, following a major accident that wrote off our car and caravan they offered us a replacement van or motorhome to continue our holiday.

    My wife had always fancied making the switch so we used the opportunity to try it out. Two weeks later we were hooked.

    Red Pennant recovered our car and caravan, arranged the motorhome hire and rebooked our ferry crossing very efficiently. Excellent service.
