Then you recover the costs in full (less any deductible or excess as may be applicable) on your return - or earlier if you email them copies, perhaps - and you are reimbursed in full.

    It works, though that does not remove a bikermate's statutory rights to complain, moan, whinge, rant, not understand (wilfully or by accident) or just fret as enshrined in the Bikers' Charter. So crack on!
    On the other hand if you have the added 'emergency' cover they look after you and pay for everything. I had an accident in France this summer, they paid for recovery and repatriation of the bike, a hotel on the evening of the accident, taxi journeys and flights home the following day. All arranged by Allianz on behalf of BMW and all without me having to pay anything. I cannot praise the service highly enough.

    On another occasion I had a breakdown in Germany. The recovery to a BMW dealer was free but I paid for the repair and claimed it back once at home. As others have said, no problems

    I have paid for the full cover and have had a hire car because of this. My main concern was being told by Faro BMW that my repairs weren't covered and I'd have to pay. Obviously there's potentially some detail lost in translation but, I'm happier now having paid knowing that I can claim the costs back.
