    To all.
    Use the extra link supplied. Do not use the Get Deal link as it takes you to a different set up where they rate your chances of breakdown by how old you are and where you live. For example, same address and car etc, but £2 per month difference based on a 10 year age gap

    £39 is for roadside repair or tow to the nearest garage. Based on 1 specified vehicle. Whereas personal cover for any car starts at £59
    3 extra choices thereafter. Choose any or none. At Home, National Recovery, Onward Travel.
    Add 1 option +£50
    Add 2 options +£90
    All 3 options +£120 (edited)

    I had this offer a couple of years ago. Had to chase the voucher, so be sure to put a reminder in your diary rather than trust it to appear.

    if you pay yearly - its £39 - and you will get your voucher within 6 weeks - so effectively its £19.

    NO! It's £39 at no point will £19 only leave your account.

    Is this deal for new customers only? Or can existing members benefit?

    Old customers with a new email apparently

    Had to use AA 4 times in the last year of my policy and they have been out between 30mins - 1hr 45mins. So no issues with them .
  7. williamsofsoton's avatar
    Remember the benefits as well, discounts at Greene king, hungry horse, chef n brewer. Not a reason to buy, but if you do buy make the most of them

    Moderate Heat. Had mine with the AA for £45 last year for national recovery for two people (rather than the vehicle) at end of May and they've just quoted me £150 to renew, which I've declined...

    After double checking on here, the previous offer for vehicle cover for £20 (or add national recovery for £40 total) is still valid, and you don't have to mess around with gift card.s.

    Therefore sadly, changing to cold vote. (edited)

    Paid £75 last year May, renewal £300! Was told they can bring down to £200, declined. Through your link same package for £90.

    Don't know what is the point of these "covers". On the off chance you actually need help they will find some article and T and C's which will make you ineligible for the assistance on this occassion. And even if they do graciously agree to help good luck waiting for 8 hours for someone to get to you because they happen to be busy. Great deal
    gambiting's avatar
    I mean, have you ever used one, or are you basing your opinion of what you read on the internet? Because like, it's just not true, not even a little bit.
  11. geordie7's avatar
    If you breakdown at peak times be prepared to wait possibly hours.
    TheUndergroundMan's avatar
    Yeah best to be self sufficient and prepared or have a friend/family to call on such occassions
  12. gambiting's avatar
    Thanks OP, bought as my VW assistance just ran out.

    This is a great deal. If you are already a member renew with different email
    bennie1's avatar
    I'm an existing member but surely they can tell if you take a new membership, it's tied to your number plate or address?

    Can you select a start date? Learnt my lesson picking a breakdown company who just licenses out to local garages
    crazylegs's avatar
    They all do that

    I’m getting quoted around £24 for the whole shebang at rescuemycar - wouldn’t you just go there?

    I had similar with RAC. Broken down in Chelsea on the way from work at 5pm. Was waiting til 10pm for them to call that noone can get to me and if I want to be towed home. At midnight someone finally arrived to tow me. I was exactly 10 miles away from home so didn't have to pay. At the time (winter) experience was pretty frustrating, but I did get home for free so can't complain really
  24. scott2c's avatar
    How much does it cost to sign up on the day of breakdown?
    TristanDeCoonha's avatar
    Full commercial rate, at least. Most deals or third party bonus pricing has a clause of 24 hour qualifying period
  25. ian18's avatar
    Used to be worth it when you got 10% off at the services on purchases.

    Not so much now
  26. DealHunterChaos's avatar
    This is a great deal if you really want AA breakdown cover so heat added OP. However, I don't think it is good value for breakdown cover overall.

    Greenflag isn't as good as AA for numbers of recovery vechicles but you can get home start and onward travel for the price of the lowest teirs of AA. (No I am not providing links search yourself as prices vary by car age etc.)

    I broke down in my wife's car with my two sons and a mate on the way to go fishing. The car had AA - I had told her to get Greenflag full coverage but she wanted the AA brand name It was abouy 2.5hl hours wait and they sent some local tow truck firm not an AA man. I had to stay in a hotel at my cost as no garages were open, they towed me in the morning to the nearest garage

    Let's face it we infrequently break down so level of cover is most important. I have realised how essential onward travel or tow home cover can be.

    Like I said if you need the AA brand in your life this is a great deal.
  27. Sastasamaan's avatar
    I see it's a brand name but they do great job in all my calls, my friend broke down I have personal cover he called RAC 3hrs later still no recovery , I called my AA policy 45min and a guy came alternator had gone so charged the battery and followed us as we drove back home . Perfect
  28. Shane_rqC's avatar
    that why i use startrescue they turn up within the hour
  29. Shane_rqC's avatar
    the amount of cars i seen breakdown and dont have breakdown cover and they new cars is a joke if you got a new car and cant afford breakdown wtf is a joke
    doxtom's avatar
    New car should not break down
  30. AdamBuyer's avatar
    Can anyone advice if your an existing customer how to go about this ? I’ve already cancelled my policy not to renew end of may but really need breakdown cover and prefer AA
    Eraflo's avatar
    Exactly the same position here
  31. mickymcd's avatar
    Ive just received my renewal from the AA £127 just rang to cancel the renewal best price they could do inc a discount is £97 blah blah blah ive never had to use them thru my year with them ive been with other companies too autoaid etc just looking for breakdown cover to get me home not bothered about home start option
  32. Hunterx878's avatar
    If I only have Roadside, and say, I break down 100 miles away from home, would I be covered to be taken back home? or would that be the "Nationwide" cover?

    This offer obviously won't apply to me but wondering if I can add the Nationwide. Anyone ever had any success trying to get taken to a destination on the Roadside only? or are they quite strict with that?
    xtzs's avatar
    If you have Roadside and you're away from home, AA should take your vehicle to a nearby garage if they can't fix it on the spot. You'd need National Recovery to get taken back home.

    You might be able to add National Recovery at the time, over the phone, but not guaranteed and you'd almost certainly have to pay full price, no discounts/offers. As for getting taken to your destination if you only have Roadside: seems optimistic that they will give you cover that you haven't paid for, so probably not!
