FAO The nurburgring guys

If you haven't yet taken out your RAC european breakdown cover call Charlie from RAC on 0800 0726999 choose option 3 and her extension is 33139.

Your need your membership number in your profile, she did me a great deal of only 35 for full comprehensive cover.

The moral of the story is, you'll never get the job done properly with a Semi.

Always deal with the top nobs! ;)

Lol!

I know these guys personally, the car that RAC deemed as not having a market value great enough to cover the 500 repatriation fee was an FD RX7. That speaks volumes for anyone traveling with a Skyline imo.

AA work on the same principle with the repatriation costs, its just like insurance companies writting off cars, its always gonna be an arguement on value.

the cost of repatriation is around 1,200 apparently, spoke to a chap at RAC today....so if you have a 32 GTST I would strongly suggest you check the car value in Glass's guide!!!

he also quoted me 56! so I will see if I can get hold of charlie on monday

Lisa, they quoted me the same when I phoned them last Monday as Charlie was away. This is the cost for cars over 5 years old apparently. However I declined their offer stating the 35 Bruce was charged and they came back 5 minutes later with a quote of 35.10 which I accepted. As with all insurance offers/quotes never accept the first offer they give you, after all why should you pay more than the next person?

Actually not entirely true. Just got a proper quote from them for a car as old as mine. 59.91 or 82.54 to cover parts and labour costs up to 500

Same as I was quoted for my trip a few weeks ago. I am an AA member but it was cheaper to take the RAC european cover. Cant fault the AA on the odd occasion I have needed their services though.
