I had a stone crack my windscreen up near Birdsville last year on our way to cross the Simpson desert, Club 4×4 organised everything for the replacement screen.
On my trip across the Simpson I was accompanied by an Amarok on our way to Birdsville, he had clutch problems. But prior to this I had spoke to him about Club 4×4 and all the extras including extra cover for remote recovery and he informed me he only had normal insurance and NRMA road side assist. As the Big Red Bash was in Birdsville at the time of our crossing, the mechanics were too busy to have a look that day so he decided to go anyway only to completely blow the clutch 200 km’s in – about the middle of the French line.
He had to wait 3 days before a tow truck from Mt Dare could get him at his own expense back to Mt Dare, then the NRMA covered the cost to Alice Springs. He ended up out of pocket a couple of thousand dollars for the recovery to Mt Dare.
