Hmmm. The guy said to me they definitely cover the vehicle abroad to a maximum of £3000

He said that as all their insurance polices specialise in different cars e.g 4x4s, classic cars etc that it's only right to use a recover company that offers the same service

I couldn't see anything in terms and conditions but i will send an email to get it in writing hopefully!!

Keep you posted

15 years max age with flux from memory.

Some may remember I had a vehicle on a trip last year in Corsica with a auto box problem (stuck in kick down) the people had a nightmare and it took 2 months for them to get it back, the Aa actually had it towed to a breakers yard without the owner knowing, we took him there to pick it up.


From that experience I changed from the AA to flux.

Things you need to remember, if you breakdown in a French motorway you have to pay and claim it back as they don't allow breakdown companies on,

It's also not allowed to tow in France, so don't think you can tow your mate home.
