European Breakdown Cover
« on: August 12, 2018, 05:20:37 PM »
After 2 years with Carole Nash and their comprehensive EU breakdown cover, they've now priced themselves to discourage me from renewing.
Nothing new there, they all seem to do it but...

I'm struggling to find suitable EU breakdown cover for the 2 weeks I go away each year, or, more to the point, being able to get cover details.
I don't need medical insurance but I do need full repatriation of the bike if it's beyond a quick repair or accident damaged.

anyone got any ideas?

I used QDOS when I went to Spain and Portugal in May 2018.
It cost 34.85 for 12 days' cover.
I never had to use the insurance, though.
As such I cannot comment on whether it was any good or not.

I get it free with my nationwide flex plus current account.  Not a free account, but I get some interest each month, pays about 1/2 of the monthly fees, and I can't get breakdown (car & bike) and travel insurance as cheap as the rest of the cost.   Worth a look.

Thanks guys, I'll check them out.
I get full medical cover with work and only need breakdown so the bank account ones - whilst good value - are an expensive option for me.

Give the RAC a ring, you'll get a discounted rate as a Triumph owner....

Look at the terms carefully do you need repatriation of the bike in the event of an illness or accident to you not involving the bike and not simply breakdown cover??

A small chance but sod's law....................
