Single trip breakdown cover (from UK / Euro)

Hi, I'm planning a European trip for a few days, and I need a suitable breakdown / recovery. I'm not covered for Europe on my existing policy, so I just need this few days to be covered, then I'll add euro cover to my policy when it renews next time

Can anyone recommend a suitable, reasonably priced, but worthwhile service ?

Many thanks


Paul

We use ADAC but that is for 12 months at about 95 euro so probably not for you this trip.
Most UK providers will add 90 days europe cover to an existing plan for a price

I'm with RAC, they said they can't provide it, but pointed me towards their sister company if I should need any single trip cover....... But they also told me that their cover, whilst a fraction more that a quote I'd already had, would come with a fuel card for £30, they said this would arrive after my cancellation period was over. After this, I phoned them and they denied any knowledge of any fuel card, saying that it was a deal on another policy. Needless to say, I'm not their biggest fan !

Romania ? You lucky bugger ! You'll have to let me know how you get on. Romania was a place I'd researched a little, looks an ace trip, and a beautiful place. That's some good distance too.
I'm sure you'll take plenty photos, you'll have to put a ride report up

How many of you are going ?

Will do. I'm going with two others - one is a mate I've done several tours with, the other I've never met (meeting him at the chunnel). All part of the fun.

Similarly you'll have to let us know how your trip goes.

Cheers
Andy
