Breakdown cover for motorhomes and caravans is offered for those who are looking for single trip cover or annual cover for multiple trips by most of our providers. Travelling in a motorhome or a campervan is an popular and cost effective way of taking a much needed family holiday or visiting new places.
Roadside Recovery is offered if the vehicle cannot be repaired at the roadside. The recovery agent will normally have the vehicle towed to a local garage for further repairs. If repairs are going to take some time, there is usually provision in European Breakdown Cover for onwards travel or overnight accommodation (if you cannot stay in your vehicle), and a hire car may be available - but note that this will usually be a car and not a motorhome or campervan, depending on local availability.
If your vehicle needs repairs, it is important to note that the costs of spare parts are not included in the policy. Some of our European breakdown providers include free delivery of the spare parts if the parts are not available locally. So, although you may have to pay for the part itself, at least you won’t have to worry about how it gets to you.
Repatriation plays an important role in European breakdown cover, as if your vehicle is not able to be repaired then your provider may be able to arrange for you, your passengers and your vehicle to be transported back to the UK. Depending on the distance, they may instead pay the cost of public transport back out to your vehicle once repairs are complete; so that you may drive the vehicle back home to the UK yourself.
