thanks. very good deal. just signed up. good reviews too
Check your emails that you don’t have the £10 off £20 voucher code that they send through intermittently, as that is a better saving than the 20% off.
Will check my emails, thank you.
I HAD EA breakdown cover. It is not worth the paper its not printed on. Three times I needed assistance and 3 times they found obscure T & C's which they used to say the breakdown was not covered.

On the 3 occasions it took 20+ minutes to get through to an operator, on a premium number. I checked and Green Flag, AA and RAC would cover the breakdowns and none would have been refused. None of the breakdowns were unusual....one was for a flat battery.....they used an excuse that the battery had to be checked on a regular basis. As it wasn't and the T&C's said the car had to be properly maintained, they refused to come out. One was keys locked in the car, they told me to break a window....AA, RAC and Green Flag would all have helped. The third was a brake calliper sticking and they used the servicing and maintenance T&C's against me, even though the brakes had just been serviced and new discs had been fitted. They told me the garage who fitted them was responsible for the breakdown and I would need to take the breakdown up with them (on a Sunday). I am considering the Ombudsman and a serious complaint. I am with the AA right now.
Prices from a one off check on 12 Jun 2017..... No doubt when they had them inflated for a short period. Why not use current prices?! If it seems too good to be true it probably is.

OP does not take away from fact you have seen a deal.....just not sure it is a 'good' deal.

Doesn't surprise me - it seems that every time I get a voucher for something via Groupon, it's not quite what it seems; there's always some small-print or catch.

If you do contact the ombudsman, do please let us know how you get on. Emergency Assist is often listed as a deal, and it would help others to know what happened with the ombudsman's decision.
Thank you, will take a look.
My car is 11 years old and my son's is a 1994 reg - will these years be covered by this? Thank you.

I'm having second thoughts about EA now after reading this. I've had a flat battery before and have been covered by my current breakdown company - Start Rescue. I've now read some reviews on their website and I'm not going to take up this offer now! Some customers had to wait for around 3-4 hours for the breakdown company to turn up. I think that it is a brilliant offer if you pay out for it and you have no cause to use them over the year, as you would not have paid out too much for breakdown. I know that Start Rescue is reliable and I'm paying about £40 for full breakdown cover - my gearbox packed up at Bournemouth Airport once and they turned up really quickly and towed my car all the way back to Exeter (around 84 miles), no problems at all.

Got stuck down the bottom of an icy road a couple of weeks ago- solid ice meant there was no way I could drive back up. Start Rescue told me I wasn't covered for ice, snow or mud. I thought that's what I was paying for. Absolutely useless, am considering getting Green Flag membership (no such t&cs) even though my Start Rescue membership is months away from finishing. It's false economy going for these cheaper quotes.
