Posted several months back, the RAC are again offering a discounted online application. For £33 you get the basic breakdown package and £20 back via Quidco. Just over £1 per. month seems not at all bad........

Not Bad, But If U Buy An Additions Plus Package From BarcLays Bank If U Hold An Account With Them For £15 U Get Complete Breakdown Cover From Rac Plus Other Things Like Worldwide Travel Insurance, Mobile Insurance, Domestic Insurance And Plenty More

Doesn't seem too bad.

isnt that £15 a month though.

yh but pay £2 more and u get lots more, worldwide travel insurance is worth £15 alone!!!!

Is this the pretty pointless one that only covers you less than 10 miles from home?

Good deal. As a member of staff i can't get it any cheaper!

Other way about - they won't help you unless you're at least a 1/4 of a mile away from your home!

good cost but just toooo basic. They wont tow you anywhere and you need to be at a certain distance from home.

I prefer getting asda breakdown (which is serviced by RAC) for around £60 a year which includes everything !!

not sure what the barclays thing is about ... anyone got more info ?

Basic Green Flag Recovery for me £29.40 minus £20 quidco!
Result!:thumbsup:

err, this is £13 for 12 months, yours works out £180!!! So def not worth it via the additions account when you consider you can get decent annual travel insurance (including USA) for £22. :thumbsup:

Did this last year and quidco never tracked. Have heard of a number of people this has happened to, so dont rely on it.

Plus you need to be 18 for said bank account, whereas I'm 17 and have a car to keep on the road...

I've taken out 2 RAC breakdown policies, each time the quidco failed to track and even when I eventually got one recognised there is still no payment after 8 months. Talking to other people this seems to happen regularly so be warned

yep green flag is a much better deal imo, they also cover the vehicle not just the driver.
If you want to cover your partner when they drive your car the RAC charge extra.

its £22 cashback at ]CashbackKings.com and I had no problems with the tracking . also they have no admin fee!

Thanks for warning us.

I took out a policy with R.A.C in may when the cashback was £40 which tracked and paid through quidco no problem.

Why do you say **** like its only £12.50. What you should say is you get all this for £150 per year. Say it to yoursefl over and over again until it sinks in, then work out how much each of those items are individually. Whenever i have done this I can either find the things cheaper or for near enough the same price.. Lets acknowledge something together - these things are not good deals. These things are set up for people who can't see the bigger picture :roll:

Thanks for the info man that looks a really good deal compared to others. Although it is now £72.93, does quidco track on this? If so which link is it ASDA.COM or ASDA Finance and how much do you get back.

Seems like a good deal. Loads of hassle filling out extra forms with green flag on quidco; I think I will get this for both our cars.....

LISTEN, PEOPLE!

Have a look at AutoAid! They will give you absolutely top breakdown / recovery cover for just £36 a year. :-D

This covers both you and your spouse (or certificated civil partner) while driving any car. If your vehicle cannot be repaired at the roadside, they will pay to take the vehicle and up to 5 passengers anywhere, also paying hotel costs etc.

Best offer anywhere!

It is an insurance. You pay the call-out garage and AutoAid will refund the cost within days.

AutoAid is strongly recommended by moneysavingexpert.com - see here:

moneysavingexpert.com/ins…ery

I have signed up with them, after being charged a rip-off premium by the RAC. So has my daughter, who has moved to them from the AA.

Here is the link:
autoaidbreakdown.co.uk/

Another vote for Autoaid here. I've been with them for the last four years, during which my wife and I have experienced three breakdowns between us. Essentially, Autoaid sort out a recovery firm for you, who will fix your car if possible, take you to a garage, take you home, or take you to a location of your choosing. You have to pay them up front and reclaim the cost off Autoaid.

I have been delighted with the service and would highly recommend them, but beware that the way this works means you must have some means of paying the recovery company when they assist you, so you could have problems if you don't have a card/cash/cheque book on you (I guess you could phone a family/friend to make the payment if neccessary though).

They do cover you and your spouse, regardless of the vehicle being driven, but they don't provide assistance within 1 mile of your home. I'm not sure why the latter would be an issue, as you just call your local garage to bring it in then.

Actually, the AutoAid policy DOES automatically cover you for breakdown at home or within one mile. :thumbsup:

However, in such cases they will only pay the first £65 of any claim - which if you think about it is very reasonable.

In all other cases of breakdown, they will pay the full amount.

Compare all this for just £36 for TWO people against the rip-off charges of RAC, AA etc.

The only thing about AutoAid is that they do not have road patrols - but bear in mind that if the RAC or AA do not have a patrol convenient to help you, they will call out a garage mechanic, just like AutoAid.
