Guide to Motorhome & Campervan Breakdown Cover
Here at Comfort Insurance we’ve heard no end of stories about motorhome owners who have planned fabulous trips across the UK and Europe only to get across the channel and for something to breakdown on the way out of Calais. A breakdown is always frustrating, whether it happens at the start or end of your trip, but it doesn’t need to be the end of your holiday all together.
In the sections below, we'll take you through some of the features you should look for from your motorhome & campervan breakdown cover.
Emergency Repairs for Motorhomes & Campervans
A good breakdown company will be able to look into repairs on the roadside. If you break down on the roadside under Comfort’s breakdown cover, we’ll get one of our approved agents out to attend the scene and – where possible – carry out emergency repairs.
If your problem is simple enough to fix, they should be able to do it there and then. All the electrical equipment in your motorhome means battery failures are common and it’s usually only a few minutes’ work to get things going again.
More complex problems might mean you spend an hour or so on the roadside so be prepared with food supplies and warm clothing, especially if you’re travelling somewhere cold.
Transporting your Broken-Down Motorhome or Camper
If you suffer a serious technical problem, then that’s where motorhome breakdown cover comes into its own. If you need to be towed to a nearby garage or even all the way back to the UK for repairs then good European breakdown cover makes everything easy.
With Comfort Insurance, there’s no need to worry about finding a foreign and trustworthy repair centre or garage – we’ll ensure that you and your motorhome or campervan are transported safely to a reputable repairer or even to your home address (if it’s nearer).
Misfuelling Your Motorhome
Misfuelling is when the incorrect fuel is put into a vehicle, and usually involves petrol being accidentally pumped into a diesel engine. If this has happened to you, you’re not alone – over 150,000 UK motorists misfuel their car every year.
That’s why we’ve got you covered for misfuelling in our breakdown insurance.
If you load the wrong fuel into your car while you’re motorhoming in the UK, we will remove the contaminated fuel at the place where it happened or transport your vehicle to a suitable repairer who will remove the contaminated fuel.
Different Levels of Motorhome Breakdown Cover
Of course, different breakdown companies will offer different levels of motorhome & campervan breakdown cover and if you’re planning to go outside of the European Union or have specific requirements, you need to check your policy. You should also check whether your motorhome insurance offers a breakdown cover – the top policies will offer a good level of breakdown cover as complimentary.
You absolutely shouldn’t travel without it and though hopefully you’ll never use it, campervan and motorhome breakdown cover is a lifesaver when things go wrong. Don’t let a breakdown be the end of your holiday – make sure you’re covered and prepared for the worst!
European Motorhome & Campervan Breakdown Cover
If you’re travelling a little further out from the UK, and hitting mainland Europe, then it becomes even more important to ensure you have the right coverage. Breaking down in the UK is one thing – but having issues in a foreign country can create additional complications that you would probably rather avoid.
With European motorhome breakdown cover, you can rest easily knowing that whilst you might be inconvenienced by a breakdown – you won’t be out of pocket. So, as well as our 365 days EU travel cover, we provide optional European breakdown cover for motorhomes as part of our award-winning policies.
Please note that, with the UK set to leave the EU within the next couple of years, it is possible there will be some alterations to our European coverage.
Large Motorhome Breakdown Cover
Whatever the size of your motorhome, we can provide the breakdown cover you need as an optional extra to your insurance policy. A range of large motorhomes are included in our breakdown cover – simply ask us if we cover your model.
Having a larger vehicle can sometimes mean it’s more expensive to get things fixed. But Comfort Insurance breakdown cover will ensure you’re covered no matter how big your motorhome, so you can have complete peace of mind on your trip.
