    Hi
    Does anybody have recommendations for European breakdown cover - taking the Z3 to Monaco in July and need to get some cover sorted but most reviews on line about AXA / Green flag etc are prety poor!

    Have not had bad experiece with Green Flag . Broke down in Sicily (in the middle of nowhere) on the way home last year and they were fantastic. Very attentive - put us up in 4 star hotel with pool while car was fixed - took 4 days due to obscure electrical fault with no diagnostic equipment available in area. Gave us numerous options including staying and waiting, transporting us and car home or transporting us home and then me back to collect car when fixed. Could not praise them enough. Cover with them was through our car insurance Company.

    Thanks guys, it's good to get real feedback, I think it's going to be either the RAC or Green Flag, both similar on cost, the AA are twice the price for a single trip and I can't see much difference in benefits.

    Both rac and green flag are good.

    Forgot to say some companies put an age limit on car - so check this - Green Flag do not.
