i just joined aa as it was cheaper than rac ive been with for 4 years - supposed to be starting 25/1...they sent me cards to start 7/1...requested they change the date as per the form i completed, eg 25/1.....still waiting for a response 3 days later......ive requested a cancellation (before ive started) ....aa are dreadful compared to RAC...going back to rac

aa top solution was £110 via quidco (rac was £128 via quidco)

I just joined the other day doing similar with quidco. BUT quidco were only doing £17 cashback on the cheapest policy. Wish i had took the time to check the other cashback sites. I was in a rush i guess as i only actullay done it so i could save 0.2% on there personal loan rate by being an existing customer.

:thumbsup:

royals not all of us have break cover just like myself like taing risk but i lernt my lesson last month when i broke down on the moterway rang all mymates if they could come out rescue me and it was late at night.
at the end friend of a friend come out and rescued me and managed to use there aa card which got me back home so now looking for my own cover

my adivce is to have breakdown cover is esential
#11
Paid £29 the other day and got the complete cover for this price - NOT the basic package.
So I took the cover for both me and my husband (£58), steal considering they quoted me £178 for both of us a few months ago.
#12
You should look at AutoAid.

Excellent cover for just £37 - and that includes your spouse, in any vehicle!

Haven't got time to look it up just now, but put AutoAid into your search engine (Google etc) and you will be amazed at what you get for your £37.

It is very highly recommended on MoneySavingExpert. Have a look there, too, at the "breakdown" forum and read people's experience.

You pay the call-out garage and reclaim the money from AutoAid - which people say only takes about 7 days!

just word of CAUTION for those who think TCB top cash back is guaranteed.
far from it!
after 5 months i am still waiting for my cash back from them.
not even validated despite i had done everything as instructed including so called 'TEST TRACKING'
i will never use them again. on the other hand QUIDCO i have done 8-10 deals and all has been paid out to me. recommended (quidco)

I've got joint relay cover. I costs approx £120 a year. I've not needed to call the AA for 10 years so i've paid £1200. I'd have been better not paying the AA...Although I have the peace of mind.

Ultimately, my money is making profit for the AA plus it's covering those with less reliable or older cars.

It's no different to boiler breakdown cover. Have a look at this article on MSE.

http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/utilities/boiler-insurance#alternatives

Unless you an unreliable car / boiler you'd be better saving the money that you would have spent on these premiums and having it available if it's needed..unless you want to pay for the peace of mind.

How do you change it back to only the discount on top of cover as I dont want the M&S vouchers and works at a better deal for me. I clicked your link and now it doesn't change back!!

funnily enough i have had exactly the opposite :roll: i have just been paid from topcashback for a car insurance premium(took two months mind you) but after 9+ months with quidco im still waiting for a payout deal on the grand national ! This after numerous emails and despite the fact my daughter and her boyfriend have both been paid for exactly the same deal. Im currently writing to them as part of their grievance procedure but being unregulated i hold out little hope

good deal btw voted hot :-D

Please can you tell me how to get quidco cashback AND nectar points?

Thanks very much.
#27
Well a good deal but I'm giving it a miss as the AA refused to pay out my quidco after I used a discount and a 2 for1 offer. Well last year went with RAC and just signed up with green flag at a cost of a little over £7.
#28
no good to me coz my rubbish car is more than 10 years old, so i joined rac for £33.50 and topcashback £21, so worked out £12.50 for a year, thax voted hot for other people

Was with the AA but didn't renew due to the high cost then they phoned the other day and offered me this.

Voted cold.

Based on same level of Cover you can get joint with the RAC through Tesco clubcard points or increase your cover level. Cashback isn't guaranteed as people have said.

http://www.tesco.com/clubcard/deals/browse.aspx?N=4294967150

Basic cover from £14.25 in vouchers for a single person. My parents bought me the roadside/recovery package on their vouchers, popped my name on the paperwork when it arrived and was covered in under a week.
#31
Frankly Roadside assistance on its own is useless, dont ever get breakdown cover without a recovery option (with the AA its called relay) For anything other then if run out of petrol its more or less useless. Modern cars very often cannot be fixed at the roadside, as parts are often required.

I am sub-contracted by the AA (and others) for out of hours service and all too often i turn up for a breakdown and have to break it to the motorist that they will have to pay anything from £80 up to several hundred pounds (depending on distance) to be recovered home or to a garage.

People don't seem to relaise that basic roadside cover ONLY covers you for minor repairs at the roadside and thats it. You wont have to pay then and there for the recovery but you WILL be billed by the AA and it wont be cheap.

Regarding the comparison of different companys (AA, RAC, Greenflag etc) then DURING normal working hours the AA is certainly the best simply for the fact that they have the most patrolmen BUT out-of-hours they are all the same as they all contract out (usually to the same Independant Breakdown Operators) So bear this in mind when deciding who to go with.

Although I agree with some of your comments about sub-contracting out of hours (as I have broken down at midnight and been towed home by another company free of charge), I have to disagree with your opinion that basic roadside is useless. I've had nothing but basic roadside for 5 years either with the AA or RAC and have used their services every year. They have inflated my tyres when some dick let them all down; they have started my car after I had a flat battery; they have replaced my fan belt; they have TOWED my car HOME after I broke down about 5 miles away from home and told me what was wrong with it so I could get the part for it and fix it myself. As I said I have always been on the most basic package and did any of this cost me any additional money? No, not a penny.
#33
My cashback has tracked at £17 from TopCashBack (the same as quidco)

Makes it £12 per year.

Check what yours has done.

The AA website states (under basic cover)
aa

Our aim is to fix your vehicle and get you on your way, but if we are unable to do this within a reasonable time we will provide a local tow to the nearest suitable repairer.

Is that not misleading then?
