What is a best buy cover with all options (except European cover) have looked at a few in the £60 - £80 range but would like some recommendations based on personal experience please
I can vouch for this cover, as it does work. My old mk3 hatch dropped an valve on the engine. They got the car back to my address in the UK, plus I had a hire car to come home in & over the weekend to find a replacement car. This was from central France & all the ferry crossing needed. The best £200 on service & recovery. (if they did the service right in the 1st place they might have picked up and the engine problem, but that's another story.)No experience but:
Get your car serviced by a Ford dealer and it includes 1 year breakdown including Europe
Lookers is a chain in its own right, so that may explain it.I must admit there is one local dealer near me which is not on that list, use to know as Benfield Ford but is now called Lookers. Also I found that some dealerships have some on the list and others you would expect to be there aren't, strange.
Are you still with the RACMines £120 with the RAC, but it also covers my caravan.
If i breakdown on the outward journey it will take the van to the site and then
take the car to be repaired. If it cannot be repaired then they will bring me home
and take the caravan to the storage also.
Fingers crossed, never needed it.
That Green flag mayday looks good in the brochure I have just looked up.I had the RAC Arrival package and they too wanted something like £170 - £180 after discounting
from over £200. Left them and went to Green Flag Mayday for £130.
I was with the RAC for well over 20 years.
Thanks for that.Not had to call them out, Only swapped last year and not used the van since.
Yes GF have contractors, but its still the same cover. The same as you get some good
RAC guys and some useless ones. And yep your right about the RAC using contractors
also. Just remembered back in the 90's i broke down on the way to Skegness (oil pump failure)
they arranged a local garage to take me there and bring my car back home.
When its a van with Green Flag on the side or a local company they assigned makes no difference
to me. I was paying £130 for the RAC cover previously also. The renewal would come in at £210
and i would phone and complain and drop back to £130.
Last year they would not budge though.
Not in the caravan club and it didnt ask for any membership details either. I am actually with the
Camping and Caravan Club which is what you need for the RAC, but heard the RAC will cover people
who are not in it also.
EDIT: I think being in the clubs just removes some restrictions like caravan length, no restriction if with the clubs. My vans under than size and maybe swapping to an even smaller one. Sisters not using her Sprite anymore so may have that, lighter at just 1000kg.
