Buyer Beware as the weekend approaches and some people are looking at campers with a view to purchase, please be acutely aware that not everything you see on Done Deal is as it seems, on an average day a member will ask us to comment on some deal or other on done deal, its difficult to be totally objective as in some cases motorcaravans being advertised belong to members and when we see the asking price we are inclined to “Roll the eyes”, However we do give an honest opinion, What we do not like is being “set up” to give an opinion. 90% of the time we twig that we are being set up, those that are trying to set us up should realise that the club have an excellent network of member to member, and we do phone a member in the locality of the “Seller” to ask about the vendor or the vehicle.
check our New news pages .
Make the best of September its been relatively good so far. October long weekend approaches . As with all weekends our phone is on answering machine and will be monitored so if any member has a problem leave a clear message and you will get a call back.
Please remember there is no breakdown cover on your insurance unless you have taken out the special auxiliary breakdown and repatriation insurance with AGA Mondial.
INSURANCE NEWS, update 1st June 2016
All members that have not renewed their insurance by the first of May 2016 are now cancelled and if they want to renew they have to re apply with full documentation. Allianz were very fair and gave 2 months to get their stuff in. People who apply now will be going on the new 365 days deal. Allianz are conservative,(that’s good) and while some people think it’s little bit extra over the two rivals, things they should seriously consider, Can you tow a trailer without extra costs, can you do temp or permanent substitution without being charged ? Can you substitute a car for the camper while its being serviced? can you use your camper to go to and from work? Can your camper be your main vehicle ? Can you get repatriation insurance cover while touring the continent ? of course you can, Allianz give the best cover, not the cheapest but the best overall package and we have been told recently Allianz through Richardsons Insurances are beating the opposition hands down on house,Car and all general insurances. We kn0w as members give us positive feed back. Update July 25th, as of 8th of June, Paula Roche who has been with Richardson’s for yonks took over from Keith who has left for a career opportunity. We have had numerous compliments as to how helpful Paula is just as we too found Paula to be very good at her job and exceptionally helpful, if you have any queries regarding your personal insurances, car, House etc contact Paula 01 2999554 , In the meanwhile there’s none better than Betty Fry , who looks after our motorcaravan scheme, the voice you all hear when you call 01 2999501 .

Richardson’s 01 2999501 are getting the best motor and home quotes
All Insurance prices are going up.apart from the fact that the financial Regulator told all insurers to increase their prices between 20% and 50% as there was not sufficient funds to meet claims.(somebody is going to pay for the floods) does this have a familiar ring to it ?
You heard it here first
Looks like 123.ie and Chill are pricing themselves out of the market
Everybody that can hear and see knows that the insurance companies are no longer”flying kites” seeking to putting up their prices, where they can. they have done so. They have been instructed by the financial regulator to increase their prices. A Club member asked for our assistance on getting his small 1100CC car insured, never had an accident or claim in his life and lives in the midlands his renewal came in at €640 having paid €470 the previous year we did a lot of on-line searches for him, Chill came in at €733, Blue refused to quote, 123.ie came in at an incredible €1150. No Nonsense (FBD) was a joke, eventually we contacted Keith Mchugh at Richardsons (01 2999554), explained the situation and in 5 minutes he got our member even in light of price increases a very acceptable quote of €490, The CelticTiger is back Another 3 members had similar experiences in October and November .
30th July 2015 We heard that Buckley Caravans in Mallow are no longer trading
As of 22/07/2015 We have amended our Height rule on the FAQ page.
We put up breaking or important news on the front page, It’s astounding how many people don’t read any further than the front page. People seeking information should search the relevant pages
Some people ask about joining on line, this we do not do as we are selective,however it’s quite easy, just go to our about us page and see what you have to do , We have no problem sending out by post (snail Mail) an information pack.
Decent people are never exact!
As of 5th Sept 2014 We appointed a new SQI to assess motorcaravans on our behalf in the south west Michael Moynihan of Kerry Campers 087 1350500
