Funnily enough my renewal quote from auto aid just came through at exactly this price, so it sounds like a pretty standard rate. It's the same £43.31 premium as last year with a £5 admin charge stuck on. Although I got some sort of groupon/cashback deal if I remember correctly which made it £30-odd, which I guess is what they're avoiding with the new customer only clause.

Its usually on groupon for at least £10 less than this.

Yes, but not lately.......
Hi, if this Breakdown cover is for you, act soon, from 15th May price rises to £61 as stated in Money Saving Expert email 17th April, just a wee heads up to anyone who was not aware
Has anyone ever paid full price for this? I paid £31 through Groupon back in December. Cold from moi.
That's gone up a bit
I purchased with Groupon last year with discount and cashback.
No discounts or cashback at all this year. Now they have a large customer base and been heavily promoted on here and MSE prices will probably continue to rise with no offers.
I have just gone with Emergency assist on there premier service with 50% cashback on Quidco/TCB
1 vehicle only but if cashback pays out will have cost around £15 for year. Seems similar cover to Autoaid.
I just went with Green flag Recovery Plus at £41.44 with £10 Quidco making it £31.44 if they payout. Roadside assistance, home assistance,unlimited callout, national recovery,onward travel

How did you manage that if you don’t mind me asking?

I clicked through to Greenflag from Quidco as they are offering £10 cashback. Input my car details and picked recovery plus. It gives you a few different options to chose from. Hope that helps.

I've got a feeling many of us will be deserting them when it comes up for renewal.

Since they were bought out by Right Choice, the bad reviews are starting to overtake the usual good ones. Profit is the name of the game now, not customer service.

That looks like a pretty good deal to me, I'll probably do the same.
I agree with emmatthew and LesD. I was an AutoAid customer for over 20 years and it was only relatively recently that MSE started publicising them. I got a discount from them for loyalty until they were taken over as per LesD said, and I found I couldn't renew online. So I left August 2018 and went to Emergency Assist who were cheaper at just over £38 for comprehensive cover. Now Right Choice are putting add-on charges and price increases. Keep an eye on their charges! Cold!

Is there any good breakdown cover for rental cars? The car will obviously change for every new rental.

I was going to go with Emergency Assist (currently with Auto Aid) but after reading some of the reviews decided against it. A customer claimed that they were charged around £120 to be taken back to their home (which was 130 miles from the breakdown) - I called Emergency Assist and they said that if you break down and don't want to go to the nearest local garage, you only get the first 10 miles free and after that you have to pay £1 per mile to be taken elsewhere - perhaps your own garage or home. I know that with Auto Aid they don't charge you for this (to be taken more than 10 miles to another destination). I broke down at the airport around 87 miles from home and Auto Aid drove me all of the way back to my local garage (the gearbox had packed up). If I had done this with Emergency Assist, I would have had a bill for £77.

'the first 10 miles free and after that you have to pay £1 per mile to be taken elsewhere '

will this only apply on 'basic cover' or apply on 'Premium Cover' too?
