Found that RAC had reduced their breakdown roadside cover from £43 to £29.99, thought this was pretty good ...

... then found that quidco offered £20 for a live contract! Bargain! Works out less then a quid a month and includes roadside assistance, accident care and repair referrals!

Hope this helps someone!

Good one

Just got a upgraded cover with discount.

cheers

Nice find, the top option is £30 cheaper than my current AA membership, and includes more. Mine runs out next month so a good time to switch.
#4
This seems to be a good price
#5
Can't seem to find it on Quidco. Can you point me in the right direction please? Nice find though.

Found it now. If anyone else is finding it difficult to find search RAC, my results are sorted by popularity and RAC breakdown at £20 is on the 3rd page, half way down.
#6
thanks a lot, my breakdown cover ends 2morrow, so I just signed up, using quidco. vote hot!!!!
#7
Dont the RAC charge you if you have a breakdown?
used them a couple of years ago and broke down on a motorway. I had full cover and got returned home. They tried to charge me £30, but as I was left strandid for over 4 hours with 2 small children, I refused.
Not been with them since

Parts used to fix your vehicle will be charged for, but surely they should have told you that at the time?
I have never had any parts used when broken down, so don't know full details, but AA would be the same, and probably all breakdown services.

#16
Any Quidco on the Tesco Recovery? Also do they use AA, RAC or is there own people? Thanks.
#17
no quidco on Tesco recovery
#18
Top find! Mine ran out last month and I refused to rejoin the RAC as they wouldn't go any lower than £35ish for a service that I originally got through Virgin Credit Card at £27 - and I thought that was cheap!! Many thanks OP. :thumbsup:
#19
quote from quidco for RAC: Contract must go live.

what does that mean? Is paying for the cover not enough?
#20
Def is... the same cover on my joint AA renewal is over £200!!

I think we will be going with Tesco/Greenflag this time.

Just bought joint for £31.99 (counting the £20 quidco). Just realised this was stupid, should have done two seperate accounts, both via quidco, it would have cost £19.98 (ie, £29.99 x2 but with £40 quidco). A tip for anyone esle needing to cover a couple.

yeh u need to tick the box to say that you authorise RAC to charge your card every 12 months unless you cancel by writing check box 1/2 way down the submit page
#31
hmm, so RAC or Tesco, quite a price difference. Can anyone commnet on either/both ?
#32
Great thank you. Just signed OH up to RAC (had to get a quidco account first, don't know why I haven't before). Have used them in the past with no problems.
#33
Can someone please offer some advice to a complete novice?

Basically am I correct in understanding that the concept of breakdown cover is just to aid you in a breakdown? I.e They can only advise you and take you to a garage within a 10 miles radius (with the £30 option) which to me seems fairly useless if you breakdown in the middle of nowhere? Do they help you get back on road with minor issues such as flat tires, spark plugs and so on?

Please do excuse my ignorance and I'd appreciate it if anyone can make a clarification :)
#34
Great deal - :giggle: I have just joined

I am a member of Quidco - how do I get the £20 - anybody help me on that

Thank you

they would help you with those things yes, but as for the towing thing, thats why their prices go up to £106 currently, if you want to be towed a bit further, or taken home etc

The more you pay the more they offer

Personally I've always thought the most basic services they offer are a bit of a waste of time. £9 when using quidco maybe a bargain. But not if you are in the middle of nowhere at 2 in the morning with a knackered car!

but i was wondering myself whether you get more for your money with £106 from RAC or £86 from Greenflag

If they can fix you on the roadside they will. If not they will tow you to the nearest garage. They have always been able to fix my car in the past and even followed me half way home to make sure it was working ok.

Assuming you didn't go through quidco you can't get it now that you've ordered directly.

The concept of quidco is that you visit the website through quidco, quidco then uses a cookie to track the order. If the order is successful, quidco 'usually' tracks it then with a few months the said merchant pays quidco, who then pay you. You get the money paid into your account, viola :)
#39
went through quidco but it hasnt tracked yet how long does it normally take?

thanks
#40
Thank you Viola for your information

I did click on the lomnk that I thought would take me to Quidco - but obvioully I made a boob
