Mayday Vehicle Rescue is The Caravan Club's UK breakdown and recovery service

Mayday is specially designed for caravanners and motorhome owners. Operated on our behalf by Green Flag and exclusive to Caravan Club members, it provides 24 hour cover, 365 days a year, whether you're towing or not. Mayday covers your car or motorhome, and touring caravan or trailer tent.

Designed for you

  • No size or weight restrictions, we cover any combination of motorhome or car and caravan.
  • Dual recovery - If you break down on your way to a site and your vehicle can't be fixed we'll take you to your holiday destination and back home again (Roadside and Recovery, Premium UK).
  • No extra charge for specialist equipment if your outfit gets stuck on soft ground.
  • 24 hour cover, 365 days a year - with or without your caravan, tent or motorhome. If your caravan cannot be towed, we'll still recover it (Roadside and Recovery, Premium UK).
  • Cover for any driver in your vehicle.
  • No patrols just the right response vehicle every time - A nationwide network means we aim to send the right vehicle for your needs not just the nearest one.
  • Rapid Response Pledge - if one of our specialist technicians does not reach you within an hour, you can claim £10.
  • Option to purchase extras - including personal cover and additional vehicle cover.
  • New Misfuelling cover - If you put the wrong fuel in your vehicle, we'll drain the tank and give you enough of the right fuel to get going again*

Please note: you need to be a member of The Caravan Club in order to take out Mayday Insurance.
