European breakdown cover

Does anyone know of an organisation that covers a dog repatriation if your car has to be taken back to England i.e. RAC

Do you need a breakdown organisation at this moment or is this a hypothetical question?

If you have a problem abroad then the black and white answer is that you would have to find a way of getting the dog back home yourself somehow – BUT (there's always a 'but'!) as far as the insurers know there has never been a case of the dog being left behind and has always been brought back by the recovery service.

I've done a bit of ringing around and my local, and trusted, Insurance broker said that there should be no problem with bringing the dog back to the UK by a breakdown service.

But it may depend on how big or how many dogs you have and they may have to travel in the broken down vehicle if there's insufficient room in the breakdown vehicle.

Thanks for your reply have actually taken out cover with the RAC only to find out they only recover the car and arrange for the occupants travel but not the dog.
