Default Trike Breakdown/recovery cover ??

Hi all
Does anyone have breakdown/recovery cover for their trike ?
If so, who would you recommend ?

My bike has just gone away to be converted to a trike and because in future I will have a disabled passenger (wheelchair user) I am worried about breakdowns in the middle of nowhere.

Any advice on AA/RAC type recovery for trikes welcome.

I have no experience of the AA although I believe they're fairly expensive. I gave up on the RAC after several bad experiences - they'll send a van rather than recover you in almost any circumstances, just so they can say they got to you in a certain time. They do have a special service for the disabled but it costs extra.

I'm with Britannia Rescue, went with them after advice from a recovery driver, and have had some experience of their excellent service, I have 'personal cover' which covers me and my other half, in whatever vehicle we are driving or passenger in, also get European cover for my main vehicle (car in my case) - all for less than I was paying the RAC just for me, with no European cover. They've always got to me within the hour except once on a bank hol when it was just over.

Have to say though, I haven't needed them since they were taken over by Liverpool Victoria, so I can't say whether they are still as good.

Thanks for the reply BG. Been away this weekend so only just seen it.

I might also post the question on the forum of NABD, which I think you also post on.

You could also try Autoaid. their HO is in Brentwood. I've had to use them a few times and they are quite good. They usually turn up with a recovery vehicle and take you straight to where you want to go. Very little faffing around under the bonnet, just load you up and away you go!

Awaiting replies from both suggested companies as to whether they can/will cover a bike based trike.

Thanks both for your suggestions.

AutoAid should cover you as they cover the rider/driver rather than the mode of transport.
