It was your experiences that made me go with them for the last year. Just trying to find a better deal. If thats possible.

Thats the same reason i changed. Rang Brittannia rescue. and they said that if the trailer is untowable, as long as its no more than 8m long. they will recover it to your destination, and you can carry on with your journey in the
tow vehicle. he even quoted an incident that had just happened with a trailer
bearing collapse. Best to ring and speak to an adviser your self.

If you join the Camping and Caravan Club I've been led to believe that you get free breakdown recovery.

Might be worth checking out if you can cope with the morris dancing sect!!

Word of warning as well....... most recovery companies wont touch you if your boat and trailer is over 6m!

They subcontract out and leave you on the roadside for four hours in the rain just inches from the M4!!!!!!!!!!!!


Four hours later the worlds largest recovery truck arrives, just perfect for towing 8 tonne trucks along with a monkey driver!!!

That's OK for Hightower - his trailer folds for ease of storage
(Sorry mate, couldn't resist that one )

Yup RAC and AA. Never had any experience with Britania though.

At the time we had the problem with my mates boat and trailer, I owned a Jetski, and before I took out the policy I questioned the RAC if they would recover my ski and trailer in the event I should have any wheel bearing problems.

Going back to my mates problem with his boat trailer I rang the RAC and even though I was a passenger in his vehicle, they recovered his boat and trailer and delivered it to a destination of our choice.

I'm with Britannia Rescue, £73.95 covers me in any vehicle. I did speak to them before taking the cover out and they confirmed that they covered both the tow vehicle and the trailer; even if it is a trailer failure and the tow vehicle is OK they would still recover the trailer (any trailer under 8 metres). Not had to use them yet though.
