Anyone got any advice or recommendations for European recovery cover? I'm off to the Eifel this May y'see and currently have no cover at all in that respect. I am happy to wing it in Lincolnshire and Shropshire, as I can get by in the local lingo, but in Germany they spiel all funny, like.

I've read of some companies not offering proper recovery, just roadside repair or shift to the nearest garage. I'd prefer something that specialises in bikes and will take me home if I, for example, lost the key or the immobiliser packs up.

1stly (hitchhikers guide to the galaxy) DON'T PANIK

Are you sure you haven't got cover from your in-sure-ants for EU cover (phone call) tell your in sure ants you re going away. ?

Alternative is to call AA , RAC , GREEN FLAG, etc . . . get quotes

more important is health cover ,which your bike cover doesn't "cover"

Check that out with other holiday policies you may have .... or go look at the we do it better (cheaper) than them dot com sites

I'm OK for health cover - I have an annual foreign travel health insurance policy (but will check it covers biking) and have my EHC (the new E111 - must remember to take it).

Will look at my insurance too - good tip. I was put off the likes of AA/RAC when I read about them not being bike-friendly but happy to hear otherwise.

You maybe able to add your bike to your car breakdown cover , I think for a sum if you tell them the dates and the level of cover you want - it should be a simple matter .

My own personal experience i would avoid rac. Had breakdown recovery for three years running & every year got all the lovely literature about what was covered etc. I finally needed them on the unfortunate saturday morning i fell of the gsxr after hitting a big patch of diesel on a damp corner. Bike leaking oil out of the magneto cover & me in a fair bit of pain they said they would come & get me & the bike within 2 hours. So much to attending 99% of breakdowns within the hour.

I haven't had car breakdown insurance for a while now - I get a company car which is covered either by the OEM recovery service or by our own accident management plan.

I'll do some Googling and see what falls out.

Now there's a good point made by Pete.

If you have an Advantage Gold Account with Nat West they also do breakdown cover (as well as many other types of in-sewer-ants covers) free as part of the account deal.

If you have one o them thar accounts it might be worth checking out.
