Club Launches New Breakdown Cover for Tent Campers

Search Press Releases

Monday 21 May 2012

The Camping and Caravanning Club has been working with RAC to develop a new bespoke breakdown product for Club members who own a tent.

For the first time, the Club’s official breakdown service provider will offer a number of unique benefits which have been specifically developed with tent campers in mind – and at a discounted rate!

RAC is offering a 40 per-cent discount on the new tent product compared to standard RAC Arrival prices both at point of purchase*.

Unique benefits on offer include; ‘Off Road’, ‘Re-Unite’ and ‘Arrival Return’.

‘Off Road’ assistance will cover you if your car breaks down whilst you are on a campsite, providing access can be gained to the site.

‘Re-Unite’ will aid your roadside recovery if you’re away from your campsite and have a problem with your car that can’t be fixed at the roadside**. Trained RAC patrols will take you back to your campsite and then either to a local garage or back to your home^.

For extra peace of mind, those vehicles that cannot be repaired at the roadside or a local garage within a reasonable time, ‘Arrival Return’ will recover you to your campsite. If then your car cannot be repaired by a local garage then RAC will arrange a second recovery back home at the end of your holiday at no extra cost.

Nick Imms, RAC’s Arrival Representative, said: “Due to high demand from Club members, we are delighted to be able to provide what we’re sure is to be a popular product for tent campers.

“With four out of five† vehicles successfully fixed on the spot and more patrols per member than any other service***, you know that you, your family and your holiday are in safe hands.”
Paul Jones, the Club’s Membership Services Director, added: “Member feedback is important to us and we’re certain this new Arrival product will benefit our tent campers. We’ve worked with RAC for over 20 years and it is one of the country’s leading breakdown service providers.”

Arrival is exclusive RAC Breakdown Cover for Camping and Caravanning Club members, for cars, caravans, motorhomes or trailers.
