European Breakdown Cover

European Breakdown Cover is a policy taken out to cover you in the event that your vehicle develops a fault and breaks down whilst travelling abroad. Policies vary from company to company but in a nutshell, should your vehicle breakdown whilst abroad your policy will generally ensure your vehicle is fixed at the roadside or towed to the nearest garage where it can be fixed.

Play areas and play parks in France

One thing you notice when you go camping in France is the number and quality of children’s play areas and play parks they have. Although UK towns, cities and villages generally have a number of play parks, they tend to be either small or filled with old, rusty or inadequate equipment. Our local play park is of a reasonable size but has not had any new equipment for many years.

Night ferry to France

This year we decided to take the night ferry to France and we had booked to sail from Plymouth to Roscoff with Brittany Ferries as we only live half an hour from Plymouth. Our chosen campsite for two weeks was Le Clarys Plage in the Vendee and we decided to travel at night as we hoped that sleeping during the crossing would mean that no-one would feel seasick.
