I do all my travel and breakdown insurance with a nationwide current account - I think it's about £150 pa for worldwide travel and European breakdown on any size van (cars included as well)
It pays reasonable interest so if you keep cash in it cost is less.
Other insurance included - worth a look.
All breakdown insurance is included in our yearly insurance premium ,as far as I know you can’t opt out but we are in Portugal. The amount of vehicles one sees on the back of breakdown trucks is amazing.
I can't see anything in the paperwork to identify the breakdown company, but they might tell you if you call them. In the event of a breakdown I have to call "IMA UK Assistance Ltd 24 Hour Breakdown Control Centre" on 01245 408480
I used to use the camping and MH club single trip insurance until I found the RAC would give me a full year continental and UK breakdown cover for 2/3rds of the price of a 4 week holiday to France. When I chatted with the RAC man and asked why there was no extra premium for my 20 year old van, he said their experience showed that the old vans were more reliable!
Yep, the RAC are pretty good as DD says above. I simply stopped to pass the time of day in a supermarket car park to an agent selling cover. I was already with the RAC, he asked to see my card and pointed out that if I needed relay I wouldn't be covered [Sprinter 3.5GVW] so by upgrading he saved a potential disaster... I then had free CCC for a year although I don't use it..
I researched the subject a while ago after a bad experience with AXA, RAC have had the worst press coverage in the last few years, with very poor customer service. I went for a Nationwide FlexPlus account, with cover by Britannia Rescue (part of LV), but also includes phone ins., basic Travel Ins and no charge ATMs abroad. Doesn't have to be main account, no minimums in or out per month. No age limit and large size limit up to 7.5t and 8m. The full cost is £13 per month but if opened in joint names but get full cover and account benefits, they also pay 3% interest pm on up to £2500 balance, so they give us about £6.50 pm, all the cover and benefits then cost us £6.50 pm or £3.25 each. The full policy is on their website, the small print includes excellent plus points for the cover.
