At the end of 2004 the number of new motorhome registrations reached an all-time high. Touring caravans also reached their highest production figures since 1990* and this trend looks like continuing in 2005.

In response to the growing popularity of touring and following feedback from Saga's Motorhome policyholders, Saga has launched Motorhome Breakdown Assistance. This offers two levels of breakdown cover which can either be added to an existing Motorhome Insurance policy or taken out separately.

Features of the new Saga Motorhome Assistance** are:

  • a choice of recovery for the driver and up to 5 passengers to your home, your destination, or a to a garage within 10 miles of your home or destination
  • Home-Call - cover following an accident, breakdown or vandalism occurring within 1/4 of a mile of your home
  • roadside repair
  • assistance for a punctured tyre
  • cover for your motorhome whoever is driving, provided they have a full licence and are driving with the owner's permission

The Motorhome Assistance Plus option, provides all the features above, plus unlimited cover in the European Union.

Andrew Goodsell, Saga, commented: "Without the right Motorhome Breakdown cover, even a punctured tyre could leave you stranded and your holiday plans in ruins. Having cover will enable you to plan and set out on your holiday with confidence."
