This deal was taken from moneysavingexpert.com

When there's a problem, call them and rather than send their own patrols, they utilise a local recovery firm (either selected by you or them). You then pay for the repairs, and later send in receipts to claim the money back. And don't worry, if you haven't got cash, inform them and they'll ensure the recovery firm sent offers a credit or debit card payment service, or can invoice later.

Our breakdown service operates 24 hours a day, every day of the year, with staff who are trained and equipped with the most modern computer-based mapping technology available.

why? its a good product
#3
Excellent product - way and above any of the other breakdown cover offered by the AA,RAC,Greenflag etc.

It covers the named policy holder whatever car - gives you and five others cover to complete your journey - used this for a number of years and its excellent.
#4
It's very good.

I've had it since May and my car hasn't broken down once since then....;-)
#5
Good deal for those who either have the money to pay at time of breaking down and can then claim back especially those people who have a fairly new car that seldom breaks down but covers you in emergency... Does this whilst being cheaper than AA / RAC etc
#6
Bunch of cowboys... I broke down, and they reckoned they had no record of me as a customer... two weeks later, I got a renewal notice through...

Not going to vote, as it's a good price for what it is, but I definately had a bad experience with them, and the worst moment to find out there's a problem with your account is when you really need it... Peeing down at the side of the m60 with a flat back tyre on your bike...

was tempted but as you say you only find out how good they are,is when you need them so will give it a miss
#8
cover for your spouse / civil partner is included in the price
#9
Just a note, but I think this one only covers your partner as well if your married.
#10
Am I reading that right, if you breakdown - you get recovered, and repaired.

Pay for it, then they reimburse you for the breakdown AND the repair?

I wasn't aware that any recovery cover would pay for the repairs..
#11
I've been with AutoAid for over 2 years. In that time i've called them 3 times and they have been faultless.

Yes, if you can't pay for breakdowns at the time, this isn't the cover for you. For me and lots of others, this is a bargain and the 3 times i've claimed, i've had the money back with a week.

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How many people search back over a year to see if their deal has been posted before? Go find someone committing a real crime. :w00t:
#14
Used these for the last year and are going to renew my contract I broke down and they sent out a pickup within 10mins and claimed the money back which came within a week bit different to paying £100s through some of the other companies! So hot xx
#15
Voted hot because for its a great deal to someone who it suits.

Although there clearly are people who swear by this service, I think I'll give it a miss.
For me, breakdown cover = I can set out on a journey and I'll be covered incase of breakdown and I will be able to get home. All this without having to worry about having the amount of cash or a full debit card credit card - leave any of these at home and you are left to yourself - or so I understand. I don't need home start, and that is covered up till £65 only in anycase. Since I always use the joint cover, I can get me and any household resident covered for £102 through the AA. Since I am not married to my co member this works out £15 more for each of us - money I think its worth for the piece of mind.

not quite
for example of this option

If the vehicle breaks down at your home or within one mile of your home, we will arrange help and reimburse any call-out fees and labour charges needed to start the vehicle. If the vehicle cannot be repaired quickly at the scene of the breakdown, we will reimburse the reasonable cost of taking the vehicle to the nearest available garage. The maximum reimbursement under this benefit ONLY is £65.


it covers labour ot start the vehicle,however it doesnt say what state the car would be in plus you would still pay for any parts (same with normal breakdown cover mind)!!further it covers getting the car to a garage up to £65

looks the same as the other breakdown companys bar its cheaper on the flipside you pay out and claim back

tbh i would prefer the relative peace of mind of 'normal' breakdown cover
#17
I pay £150 to cover 3 people with the AA... its the "higher" package as such...

But i wouldnt go with anyone else... they gave me a 320 mile recovery to my house... took 6 hours! And it was new years day... saved my self hundreads of pounds.
#18
I'm with MoreThan breakdown now £62 full job but only because i need european cover,Otherwise i would use Autoaid iv'e used them in the past .Its been around £36 for years.

#20
Voted Hot. I used them recently and had to pay £150 to get car towed back to garage (they had to use special mats to drag the car out of a tight position). All went through OK.

And if you pay by credit card you get the money back ahead of your bill so you are not losing out....
#21
I strongly recommend this service been using them for 3 years after RAC completely pratted me about when I was on the border of two areas. Also there's no two recoveries per year rule like RAC.
#22
I agree this might be a good price, but if you include excess and the hassles, paying a little bit extra for the peace of mind you are paying for makes sense. I will stick to my AA with repair cover as well.
Not voting.

Autoaid have been good for me.

Could not undo wheel nut on car on my driveway, autoaid came within 30 mins, and changed the tyre.

Failed fuel pump on M25, Auto aid rescue took me to my home on Sunday (must admit waited an hour and half on M25 with a child, not that impressed). Monday morning transfered car to my garage.

Locked keys in boot whilst away for the weekend. Autoaid were prepared to tow car back to hotel then tow it again to my home when I left hotel. Managed to get keys out of car via ski pack in rear seat.

All in all excellent service. The biggest problem for me is I sometimes take 4 weeks to send of receipts to claim back money. Cheque received within 14 days though.

there is no excess to pay its just £36.

The same cover with the aa is over £100 - you still have peace of mind with auto aid - the only difference is that you pay for the recovery upfront and claim it back - like others have said they normally refund you within a week!

auto aid would have done the same

clearly states recovery reimbursement costs up to £65 only. A 6 hour recovery would be far more than this. Stone cold IMHO unless you only drive within 10 miles of home :w00t:.
#29
Has the service only been to cover one person in the past, sure ours is.

If so what happens on renewal, can you now add another person, ie girlfriend

Thats not correct.

I broke down a month ago on the M6.

They had somebody out to me within the hour.

Towed me home - 40 miles. I paid £140 via a credit card, claimed this back the next day and had a cheque in my hand 7 days later.

I can only go from my experience but they were spot on when I needed them.

I only thing I would say if you breakdown a long way fromm home you might have to 'stump up' quite a lot of money upfront.
#31
Caiman has read it wrong,
The maximum reimbursement under this benefit ONLY is £65.Is for a breakdown at home.

Why is it a major problem... OK it would be an inconvenience, but unlike the likes of the RAC & AA, seeing you can get ANYONE out, it won 't make too much difference at that time - So you get a company out, you have to pay upfront in any case, even if they had agreed you were covered; than you can argue about the cover later from the comfort of your own home - you should easily be able to prove you paid, & presumably have paperwork at home from them when you did - so if they are then still being a problem, get yourself off to do an online claim via the courts service! The renewal notice is going to make pretty good evidence you do have a policy!

Not convenient, and highlights lousy performance, but the whole point of this low cost cover is the fact it is cheap because you have to do most of the sorting out yourself anyway!

If the AA/RAC were claiming you weren't covered, then I agree, arguing that from the roadside would be a big problem, and leave you having to sort the recovery yourself anyway.

I think you need to read those terms and conditions again - the £65 is only when you break down at home. It is unlimited when away from home.

For 36 quid a year i can cover 2 cars, me or my wife driving, plus a motorcycle. No one else could beat that surely?
#35
I've used them for two years (one year gap inbetween because I got free AA cover as part of a car deal).

In my first year I was involved in a non fault 2 car write off accident. Autoaid phoned local firm who arrived in about 50 minutes. Paid £140 and was refunded within a week.

Best thing at the moment for those who can remember to claim. Autoaid is hoping that some don't claim in their business strategy. If you can't remember go with a no claim recovery company, like RAC and AA.

If the AA/RAC were claiming you weren't covered, then I agree, arguing that from the roadside would be a big problem, and leave you having to sort the recovery yourself anyway.

At the time, I honestly couldn't remember if I was still covered, as it was nearing the end of my cover. I rang them, and not only did they say 'it had expired' (which it hadn't) they had no record of me as a customer.
Could I have argued later? Maybe, but as I said, I wasn't sure I was covered, I would guess that 99.9% of people don't know the exact expiry date of their breakdown cover!!! So I wasn't going to take a risk...
As it happened, a really friendly RAC van stopped, turned out he was a biker, and fixed my puncture for free at the side of the M60... total hero. Since then, found out that RAC cover you for the 'vehicle' you are driving, not the car itself, and as a bike rider, and car driver, I can cover both my vehicles for the same cost as autoaid were for the pair. In fact, it was less, IIRC, as I also got cashback from CBK, think it worked out around 40 something quid to have bike and car covered...

That RAC mans beyond-the-call-of-duty-helpfulness got them a new customer.:thumbsup:

Your choice.
I've heard nothing but good things about them though, far more so than for the "big" organisations.

I agree this might be a good price, but if you include excess and the hassles, paying a little bit extra for the peace of mind you are paying for makes sense.

There is no excess, there are no hassles.
There does appear to be peace of mind though... :)

AFAIK it's always said that for as long as I've been using them - five years or so.

Why is it that the bemoaners of this deal are those who don't use it - why don't you stop trying to pull holes in the deal and accept what users of the scheme are telling you, £36 for gods sake, how cheap do you need it.

The best part of the deal for me is that not only is my car covered, but also my motorbike, and NO other similar Company comes close to offering a dual-cover policy for this amount.
