"assuming Quidco pays" - I took out Green Flag cover months ago via Quidco and not a sniff of the cashback despite a query form being submitted. Not complaining too much as the breakdown cover is cheap anyway.

this is well worth it if home starts included

you cant quote with the quidco price as its never guaranteed

I took out AA cover using Quidco in June, and that paid out in full and on time.

I have included quidco in the title, and made it clear that it is based on getting the quidco cashback, I feel in this case, it is appropriate to quote with quidco as the value of the offer is completely different with the cashback.

Can't include quidco in deal prices on here (unless it has changed recently)

might have a sniff

But you have to put it as the price you have to pay NOW, most will get paid, but some might not, and also how about the affiliates that went under and never paid quidco and then quidco would not pay people

It may be if the quidco pays out but the deal price is = to the price you pay up front and this is not the price you pay first up

It's never always guaranteed 100%....

I dont agree. Unless you have paid your annual membership fee, this deal is reduced by £5.

Cashback is never guaranteed and everyone should decide on a deal not including cashback. If the deal is not good without cashback, dont buy. That's my policy (after being stung several times with not receiving cashback.

Hyundai Santa fe.

Weird, it defintely quoted £53.55, I wonder if it is now not deducting the 40% online discount?
Edited by: "apk1" 27th Nov 2010

I don't know how you get this price. The cheapest price for recovery plus is £60 and it looks as though most cars will be around £85, as other have found out. Assuming quidco pays, this is at least £40, not £8.55.

It still says it is giving 40% discount.

I noticed that they do not quote prices on their site, you have to complete your details to get a quote, I had assumed this was to capture your details to contact you later, but maybe it is to generate a personal quote based on your circumstances, with pensioners getting cheaper cover! If so deal may only be of benefit to those in a lower risk group?

I did this last year it never tracked

It all depends on the car, its age its size, your age etc.

I have an old V6, my renewal was around £118.

£76 for me

QUIDCO = RIP OFF, I'VE BEEN WAITING FOR MY CASH BACK NOW FOR 20 DAYS.

It's cheap, but AutoAid is better IMHO.

Slightly different as you pay up front and then claim back. Advantage is you can get your trusted local garage to come out or phone autoaid who will arrange someone.

£37 for top level of cover, |we have been with them for 5 years, never a problem.
This year Mrs broke down in Dover, (we live in Cornwall). Car couldn't be fixed at roadside ( although they tried really hard) so she got onward travel for vehicle and also hire car. Total cost £731, got paid before we had paid the credit card bill.

I've used RescueMyCar.com for the last few years.

Basically the same comprehensive cover as Green Flag but for £39!!! (includes Roadside, At Home, Onward Travel etc..)

And just like AA, RAC, Green Flag etc.. you don't need to pay and claim back like Autoaid.

I called them out twice this year and on both occassions, a Green Flag vehicle arrived!! Bargain!!

Topcashback will match the quidco cashback plus give you 1% extra on top

never go through quidco if I can help it, have had lots of problems getting cashback from them, tcb much better imo

go through asda. its brittania rescue who have been voted best by which for last few years. top cover costs me £6.16 a month.

Coming up at £93.45 for me (includes online discount)

If I lower my annual mileage significantly and reduce the number of days the car is used from 6-7 days to 2-3 days it makes no difference.

However If I put my DOB as being born in 1947 instead of 1981 I can get it down to £68.25.

It seems to be based mainly on your age, and possibly the car you drive.

Good deal if you can get it cheap, but title of post needs amending to reflect the fact that it's not a fixed price.

Not voted either way.

Topcashback only offering £30.30 for Recovery plus in this instance, against £45 from Quidco

£90.30 quoted for my car. Still not bad but I will stick with Rescue My Car. £39 and 20% quidco

op done the right thing to include quidco as it make more value of it,
heat

quidco changed the cashback rate and mine track at lower rate...

More of a concern to me is that green flag in the terms and conditions say you have to manually verify it and do not get cashback unless you select BACS ,does this mean I do not get cashback because I paid with a credit card.
Seems like a few hoops have been quietly made to jump through.
