Not sure where to post this but it is pretty important to be aware of the fact that Fish Insurance, for which we pay quite a lot for a policy including breakdown cover, have a 10 mile limit to breakdown recovery!
So that means that if your chair breaks down 100 miles away from your home because you have travelled by train to a meeting...they can get you the couple of miles from your hotel to the meeting venue but then your mother has to do a 200 mile round trip to collect you and your chair in the car!!! 
This begs so many questions about the expectations of where disabled people might be travelling.  I will have to see if this is the case with other insurers...does anyone know any who do not have this limit?
