A VERY generous AA man (a fellow biker ) came to my rescue and got me going again.Turns out it WAS their error, which I proved when I found the paperwork. They apologised. Fat lot of good that did after the event. No compensation or anything, just a 'sorry about that'...Once bitten etc etc...



Wow ''just a sorry about that'' is a tad better than getting called every obscenity under the sun.

This is amazing at the price.Been with them for years and just got even better because you don't have to claim now.You could pay the AA for the same service but just imagine how much that would cost.Hot.

No you don't have to reclaim anymore. Works just like the AA or RAC.

I echo this - I have never had an issue contacting Autoaid or getting a response.

This time, I paid via groupon and applied online, receiving my documentation and confirmation almost immediately.

It sounds like either they are making a basic error with your email address, or the enail is not getting to you. I have a mail.com address and my solicitor's emails don't reach me, yet on a different email address they do ......

Email them and request an immediate confirmation by return this should mean that there can be no issue with your email address and your system is unlikely to treat the return email as spam.

In all seriousness though it looks a very good deal and thanks to OP for posting as I wasn't even aware of them. Was going to go with Green Flag personal cover for wife and self when my years Ford cover runs out but that would have been £63 for Recovery Plus (and no home cover) so this seems to beat it hands down.

I would be concerned that they would try and invalidate claim on the basis of not complying with General Condition 11 namely "Your vehicle must display a valid tax disc"

i have used this service for about 5 years now and had to call them for about 10 times so far.. yes my bad services are always great and prompt.

we used to pay out of pocket and then claim, however its all changed, and you dont need to pay at all.

once i broke down on bankholiday weekend in scotland(thats recovery of 150 miles) - on the way back to manchester they had to arrange for 1 recovery to Gretna, and provide me curtsy car to get back to manchester as they couldnt find any local recovery guys at that time of night, and arranged for my car to be recovered next day. all at the cost of just £42 a year, i take it as great service.

Also - on 1 occasion last week, i have to call them twice with the same issue to move a non drivable car, 1st to recover to local garage and then 2ndly to recover from 1 garage to another, they happily sorted it out for me.

further more, they provide services to the 2 named drivers in any car... it doesnt have to be your car that way if you are in someone elses car who dont happen to have breakdown cover - you can call these people and they will ensure you to get home safe.

The cover is personal, you can drive any car. Therefore, as long as you 'were' in the said car when it broke down (even in spirit), you can contact Autoaid, or local breakdown company, for recovery. It doesn't mean that you would be able to hang around for up to 90-mins for the tow-truck to arrive, hence leaving your partner ("her") to await recovery (_;)

Obviously, if you are married or in a civil partnership etc. this would not be necessary as both of you would be covered under the policy.

Why is it expired? It's still valid?

I've been with them for about 8 years now and (touch wood) never had to use them. But it is an insurance policy, and so at around £40/year for cover on both mine and my wife's car it is much cheaper than AA or RAC.

nationwide flexplus which gives you breakdown cover, travel and phone insurance is one to consider if you also take out phone or travel insurance elsewhere. its £10 per month for the account and you get all that free.

I broke down in Birmingham a care years ago and they towed us all the way back to London, with three young ones. If you let them know you have a seven seater then they'll add that to their system just means it may take longer to find a recovery truck that can take all of you. can't recommend them enough pay out with no hassle at all.

I had an intermittent problem with my Scenic. Eventually refused to re-start in supermarket car park. Called them out. Arrived about 45 minutes later. Car, of course, then started straight away!! Paid by CC, reclaimed in a few days - paid by cheque. Mechanic suggested what the fault might be (crankshaft sensor) - my garage replaced this (approx £ 100). Problem went away.
Am just about to renew. What I like about AutoAid it is that it covers two cars and two drivers - same level of cover with the AA was much more expensive (and I didn't like the way they kept trying to up the price but would then offer a discount if you complained on the grounds that they had lower introductory offers - what price loyalty?)

just bought it, seems the cheapest one, I don't think my car will break down soon, but it is best to have something in place just in case.

I've been with this company for 3 years and I've had no problem with them. Obviously you have to pay for any recovery services or repairs carried out which doesn't suit everyone. I've had to use them twice and both times claims have been paid via cheque. If you are married your spouse is covered as well, you just need to add their name.

A lot cheaper than the big names, but if you need recovery you have to pay the bill and then claim it back.

If you are on holiday and your vehicle cannot be repaired you would probably have to try a local Garage or ask them to take you to a garage of your choice. Would you still get the refund for alternate travel if you were taken to garage of your choice and the cost of repair was either too high or they couldn't repair in few hours.

And finally when you call for breakdown or wish to continue journey after your car can't be repaired, would operator tell you exactly what you are covered for and what you aren't covered so that you don't see any surprises when it comes to claim for refunds?

Seems like a excellent company looking at the reviews from members on here. I think they should hold there heads up nice and high as it seems they surely stand out from all the other shoddy companys out there who only want to either p155 or rip off there customers.

Im going for it.

Been with them three years and claimed twice with a total cost of over £90 for recovery. Seem to a very good response and cover for your vehicle if you don’t mind doing a little admin.

Thanks for pointing this out, good deal, just signed up.

I have a credit card, with 1% cashback on all purchases so no problem paying upfront.

If you'd read the thread correctly you'd see that I've not only read their website but held one of their policies.

Whatever you say, I can assure you that autoaid do not get you home. As you said. they merely offer to put a local garage in touch with you. You are then responsible for paying them and accepting whatever service they may provide. You then have to reclaim your expenditure.

It's an insurance policy, nothing more, nothing less. A Roadside Recovery Service it certainly is not.

How do you get cheaper AA cover?



There are lots of offers on Quidco, free fivers and other cash back sites. I just had a quick look on Quidco and unfortunately the cashback is pretty lousy at the min but they run special offers all the time. I joined last year and bought a £69 policy with the AA and then got cashback of £47. With the cashback sites you have to buy the product for the full price through the cashback site and then in a month or two you get the cashback amount paid straight into your account.

The other discount you can get is from the NHS or the police. My Quidco policy is about to run out so I have cancelled that cover and will use my police discount for this year which is 50% off the cost. I think the NHS savings group are only getting 25% at the min.

Sorry if I got confused, or got you confused, I don't often write too well

I always want my car recovered to my home rather than a garage. I haven't had to have anything fixed at a garage for years, actually if ever, it's too expensive for me. Learning how to fix stuff, and suffering the occasional nightmare that can end up being, means I can have the sort of car that would be otherwise economically well beyond my means. The only stuff I pay someone else to do is simple fixes at MOT time just to get it through quick.

I don't think they would take it very well if I demanded a recovery of my car before one of their agents had had a look at it. I'd bet the majority of breakdowns are because people have just run out of fuel which is obviously a lot cheaper to fix by the roadside than potentially a several hundred mile recovery.

i spent ages looking into this last week.

I checked with customer services and read T&C. All appeared fine for me.

You should go for the relay or recovery option so that if your car breaks … You should go for the relay or recovery option so that if your car breaks down and cannot be fixed at the roadside it may be towed to your destination (along with all passengers). Auto Aid offers the choice of being recovered to any one destination (only), which may be the nearest garage or your home or holiday destination in the UK. This is convenient as some other breadown services might insist on being towed to the nearest garage if they think your car can be fixed by the end of the day, rather than being towed to a destination of your choice. Read the terms and conditions of recovery before taking out the breakdown cover. Once taken to your destination, the cost of any repairs to your car are your own responsibility, although the cost of roadside assistance is covered. I hope this helps.



Thanks, repped.

I've gone for the one which takes you to your destination, although you're probably right in that they'll try not to but if they don't fix the car on the day they're gonna be getting me to my holiday as that's what they said on the phone!!

what are the other cheap options?


I use Autonational Rescue. Been using them for 5 years. Had to call them out several times for homestart and breakdowns away from Home (including a tow from Manchester to Cambridge). Never had a problem with them. It works similar to AutoAid in that they use local garages, except that you DO NOT have to pay and then claim back. From the payment side of things it's like AA/RAC where you make a payment and you're covered. They have a no-claims bonus (25%) and 50% discount for a 2nd vehicle.

The no claims is protected too, meaning that you can have 1 claim within 2 years and still keep your no claims bonus. And if you have another claim and they don't arrive within 1 hour, you keep your no claims bonus.

They currently have an offer of 15 months for the price of 12 with free 25% no claims bonus to get you started.

The full package is £66 a year. Not as cheap as this offer, but you get what you pay for. Equivalent package is £135 on AA's website and £139 on RAC website.

Hope that helps someone!

I can't speak for these guys as I've not used em and know no-one who has - but I'm HIGHLY suspicious of 'insurance based' schemes likes these - ESPECIALLY when it comes to the motor industry...

A friend just took out cover with MoreThan - £45ish for everything except European and Home Start seemed a DAMNED good deal to me - nothing else to pay and no limits (that I could see) on claims.

Note: You really won't miss Home Start unless a spanner is technically confusing to you - and the £65 these guys are offering wouldn't get your windscreen washed in recovery terms these days - let alone your car to a garage anyway.

Also - EVERY breakdown company reserves the right to limit the number of claims you will make somewhere in the small print - some are just more honest about it than others. If your car breaks down frequently, you'll find out sooner or later about this.

p.s. On the topic of roadside 'repairs' the AA/RAC etc. claim high rates of success - however what they DON'T say is that the majority of their work is dumbasses who ran out of petrol or don't know how to change a tyre or a lightbulb - or locked their keys in or something else 'decidedly non-technical'

They're not breakdowns, they're just 'blonde moments' - otherwise modern cars are, sadly, quite resistant to roadside tinkering so all you're REALLY looking for is a 'magic carpet ride' to the garage of your choice really??

p.p.s. I have to be a bit cynical here - only 3 types of people take breakdown cover

"Flappers" - people who take out insurance on EVERYTHING - and probably have insurance on their insurance - and insurance on that as well - and gap insurance on it too...
"Self-Centereds" - people paranoid enough to believe wherever they/their loved ones end up being stranded there will OBVIOUSLY be a killer lurking to take them/their kids etc. and so they MUST have some "Guardian Angel" service - for an easy life in their sensible car...
"People with **** cars" - hell you have to be MAD to pay recovery prices when you drive a shi**er

With schemes like this you have to hope that the Flappers and Self-Centereds will pay and not claim enough to cover the "People with **** cars" - and at £36 - err - that's a LOT of em

OMG !

I have been with AutoAid for a year now and i'm very impressed with their service. I've had to call them out twice and in each case a someone has arrived within 30mins and got my car going again - on the roadside.

I should add that the £65 limit ONLY applies to HOME recoveries...please read the t&c's more carefully and stop scare-mongering. £36 a year is a great price especially since after two years, with no call outs, the RAC wanted to raise my premium from £90 to £120.

+1 for AutoAid.

I have been with AutoAid for a year now and i'm very impressed with their service. I've had to call them out twice and in each case a someone has arrived within 30mins and got my car going again - on the roadside.

I should add that the £65 limit ONLY applies to HOME recoveries...please read the t&c's more carefully and stop scare-mongering. £36 a year is a great price especially since after two years, with no call outs, the RAC wanted to raise my premium from £90 to £120.

+1 for AutoAid.

Bump - worth a reminder........

I am with them for about a year and used twice, no problems whatsoever. One thing in favour which I see is not pointed out is; you can claim unlimited times a year where as with the big boys you have I think about max 3 or 4 claims a year.

There still called autonational rescue thats another part of the company,They have been Autoaid for years i used them many years ago no problems at all.Although for £48 with more than i get full cover with european too.

The company used to be called Autonational Rescue (with no strings attached :-D ). I have been with them for about 10 years. Cannot fault them. They have fixed my car on the roadside miles from home without any cost to myself. I have the full cover just in case!
