I am pretty sure that the regulations you mention don't cover such things as breakdown services. Surely the logic would be, if your were correct, the likes of ADAC and the AA, RAC would have to have their own operators and breakdown vehicles right the way across Europe? The alternative would be that they allowed non residents to buy the service but only cover them in Germany not beyond.

I suspect what happened was that ADAC also thought they were obliged to offer the service Europe wide but have discovered that it is not the case so have withdrawn it to non-German residents. To my mind this is a perfectly sensible decision as financially it cannot be viable to offer the service they previously did at the price they did. At least they have honoured their commitment to their existing UK customers which I expect they had no requirement to do.

Why would rules about the sales of services not include breakdown services? The website looks pretty clear to me.

I wonder what the real reason is. We can but guess.

Don't forget to leave a review of the French and other European campsites you have visited!

I would really like to know how many UK based members they actually have, DiPhil would it be possible through your wide range of contacts to find out.



Sorry haven’t been on I have not been well. I will ask the question and get back.

Caravanskier I would not cancel my membership to ADAC. You won’t get it back if you decide to apply.

ADAC services include a lot of extras that the UK Breakdown’s do for extra.

I know! And I was quite sad to cancel even though we have never had to use their services for emergency breakdown. Everything we currently need is covered by other insurances but I don`t like the idea of not being able to rejoin, because they do cover things we have needed in the past and might need again in the future! And I have just used their car hire booking service which has worked out cheaper than anything else I could source for the particular package I wanted!
