    Autoaid used to be much better than this before they sold up, jacked the prices and added in a load of policy upgrades which used to be included.

    I still use them but resent the additionally fees I rack up for having an old car. (edited)

    My car is also old so I abandoned AutoAid I'm favour of theNationwide FlexPlus bank account for £13 a month which gives breakdown + travel insurance + phone insurance. Their breakdown service has no vehicle age penalty.

    According to my notes at the time, AutoAid was £78 a year or £6.50 a month, making FlexPlus an additional £6.50 a month for phone insurance + travel insurance + breakdown cover in Europe as well. And if I ever had to actually use AutoAid they'd charge another £25 per callout too.

    So yeah, it sucks but the difference was worth biting the bullet for even as a single person. FlexPlus also can be a joint account for free and some of those benefits cover kids too, so... yeah. Party time if that's you.

    Do check all of that though, it's a year or two since I wrote the notes. And there are one or two similar accounts from other banks but that was regarded the best at the time. (edited)

    I think the nationwide flex plus current account is better. We have this as a joint account. So it's £13 a month for the account and covers both of us as personal top level breakdown cover. Plus we get worldwide travel insurance and mobile phone insurance included.

    It's really good.

    But thank you OP for posting up (edited)

    Shame about the 10 year + age of car cost 'penalty', as this doesn't mean that the car is not looked after well. (edited)

    There is also a £21.90 surcharge for vehicles 16+ years old. The standard policy only covers vehicles up to 15 years old. Increases the price a fair amount.

    Martin Lewis on MSE always recommends Auto Aid, can buy it through his website and get a discount.

    Just a heads up that the cashback pays out on the monthly option as well - I did it a couple of weeks back and the £16 became payable within a few days which I was very impressed with.

    Annoying that they've introduced the 25 quid call out for an older car

    Have used AutoAid for the last 5 years unfortunately have had to call them out twice! Both times they were fantastic nothing to pay I would highly recommend them to anyone.
