AA Cover for £!!!

GOLDENBROWNY Avatar
9y, 9m agoFound 9 years, 9 months ago
Ladies & Gents, First post so please be gentle but I just benefitted from a great deal with the AA via Quidco.

The AA are doing a deal on AA cover for vehicle membership (AA Cover for 1 vehicle whoever is driving) for £32.80.

This seems good anyway, but then Quidco.com are offering £25 cashback for completed online transactions meaning basic AA cover for an incredible £7.80 for a year!

The Basic Option 100 cover consists:

* Assistance if you have broken down more than ¼ mile from your home.
* If your car can't be fixed by the roadside, we'll take you and your car to the nearest garage or an alternative destination, provided this is no further.

Cheers Guys

Don't forget greenflag also have £20 quidco cashback and the AA cover does not take you and your passengers to any destination of your choice so you could get stranded somewhere depending where you break down.
#7
I wouldn't go with this, I don't know about AA but RAC lets you sign up for the minimum cover after you've broken down so no point signing up until you've broken down, although you may find it hard to get on Quidco parked on the hard shoulder.

Keep in mind this cover only gets you a tow to the nearest garage, not much help if you're 300 miles away from home.

Most people need home start its the most common problem trying to start car first thing.Its a good deal if you fancy pushing your non working car a 1/4 mile tho;)

Put your home address as your friends down the road then so when you break down at home you are not at home :thumbsup:

I had a really bad experience with the AA. They refused to send a patrol car to my crash damaged car simply because I couldn't give thm the name of the street that I was on. Both the location descriptions by me and the police weren't good enough.

Policeman gave up in frustration and told me to drive the car home in its a damaged state!

Personally, I'd avoid.

hi i think they are over priced for what you get i found these people on mse you get a better deal http://www.autoaidbreakdown.co.uk/index.htm

I've been with the AA for many years (15 I think?)... Option 300 for me and the wife costs about £100 a year, but I'm of the opinion that you get what you pay for. Called them out many times in those years and have never had a bad experience. I know there are cheaper policies out there, but while my experiences remain good I'll stay with them... you're paying for peace of mind as much as anything.

You would think so wouldnt you... but it comes at a premium! I called once when I was broken down. They wanted £120 for the basic cover! So here is what I did - called a friend who then used Quidco to get the basic cover for £32 under my name. That covers you straight away and I then called and got them out straight away...

So unless you know you can always find somwone at a computer if you break down I WOULDNT do what you advised...

LOL ingenius! I was getting Greenflag cover + mobile insurance included with my current account (£5 per month premium). But Ive now cancelled it as I never used either of them and my fone is not worth insuring.

Maybe this is a cheap option. What happens once the year is up? Do you get a renewal quote or are you automatically charged?

thank you ever ever soooooo much i really needed this have been searching ages for something like this
#20
I supposed this is only for new members, as stipulated in their 'small print'? I tried to ring them to see if they can change my monthly payment to that of their internet offer and they decline as this is only for new member! :-( If you cancel your current membership and apply on-line, they will void your application! (so the man on the phone told me!)

Never mind, I must say though that I've been AA member for teh last 3 years and I have found their service excellent.

Good post altogether!

Just a quick word of caution, I took this offer up about a month ago (£25 cashback) purely for peace of mind, and after four and a half years of driving my car broke down for the very first time one week afterwards on the way back home from Scotland to Preston on the M6.

Great, call the AA, they'll sort it! Apparently, as we were on a Motorway we were a priority and the usual callout time is an hour, so it should be quicker than that. They'll text/call us and keep us updated.

One and a half hours later, no calls or texts, no AA. Called them back to be told they are expected there in 25 minutes and somebody should have called to advise us. When questioned if they had a guarantee to be there within the hour, they responded 'no, don't be silly, it can be any time'.

So, two hours at the side of the motorway, they finally arrive. Put the car on the truck, and took us just off the motorway onto a macdonalds carpark and dropped the car off. The driver checked the fuses, came to the conclusion he didn't know what was wrong as all the fuses were fine, then said thats all he can do. We were stranded.

I called the AA, who advised we could upgrade our membership and have the car towed back home. Cost? £90 plus £2 per mile over 50 miles. If we'd have gone for this option in the first place it would have cost us about £40 in total instead of the £170 it did.

The worst part? after upgrading the membership, the breakdown driver said 'ok great, thanks bye!' and left us stranded there, for them to send another driver out. Two hours later.

All in all, it took us nearly five hours to get moving back home from the time we broke down.

I'm cancelling my service at the end of the year.

Also you can sometimes get discounts in the USA offered to AAA customers i.e. hotels etc, if you have a British AA card. I think Disney hotels used to do this but not sure if they still do, worth a try though.

Seems cashback is down to £20 now :(

Quido always stated £20, but tracked at £25, right?

Now you tell me! Took out the cover at £32.80 last week with 2000 nectar points with code from necetar statement, and now you tell me I missed out on another £25. Great post though - the RAC and AA charge a £59 supplement for signing up at the roadside.
#32
Great find. Voted hot.:thumbsup:

I had 1 good experience with the AA around 1988. My car broke down in Northumberland just 75 miles from the Scottish border in the middle of nowhere. At the time I had no AA cover so I had to get a lift to a garage where I managed to get a tow truck to pick up my car. It was totally fooked. While I was much, much nearer my destination than home I should've just made arrangements to get where I was going but instead choose the 400 odd mile journey back down south leaving my car in storage at the garage.

When home I signed up for the AA with breakdown recovery.... was something like £20 in those days. Left it 2 weeks & asked them to recover my vehicle.... after a few awkward questions like why I'd left it there they arranged to pick it up and bring back home :thumbsup:

This was a right result because it would've cost me about £300 otherwise which back then even by todays standards was a fair sum.

I always get my RAC cover via Tesco Club Card Deals. Saves me a fortune and Ive never had any problems with them (touch wood!!!). As I make a point of saving the vouchers specifically for this it actually feels like i get it for nothing!
#35
Three decent options IMO:
1) AA with quidco and nectar = basic cover for about a fiver. Just remember to cancel a few weeks before they automatically renew it.
2) If you want premium cover, if you have a Tesco club Card, and if you can find them - RAC via Tesco Club Card is a bargain (points count quadruple!).
3) Otherwise AutoAid is another option. Home start and onward transport for £32. Bit different - you pay for recovery, then claim it back off them. I'd be a bit worried they'd refuse claims, but I've heard good things about them.
#36
Great Tip, Thanks very much :)
#37
Hi,
Tried tonight 13/03/07 and Quidco cashback is down to £20 plus you can't get basic cover if your car is more than 10 years old.

Still not a bad deal though.;-)

Sounds as if you would be better off spending your money on servicing your car.
