£18 in Clubcard vouchers

Receive:

RAC: Single cover: Roadside

Good find, thank you.

Thanks was thinking about getting it tomorrow

Before plumping, recommend checking through MoneySavingExpert's analysis and then deciding:
moneysavingexpert.com/car…ver

dont think its a good offer, £18 is worth £72 if spent elsewhere on other deals

Is this cover for the vehicle or for a specified individual?

Speaking as the person who answers the sos phones on the motorway, I would recommend startrescue.co.uk

Spend your vouchers in restaurants, get 4 times the value

I get Rac most years for me and hubby with clubcard deals.It is a good deal but this year i havent got enough points.

Seems it doesn't cover you to home though

Nationwide RecoveryIf, in the opinion of the Recovery Operator, they are … Nationwide RecoveryIf, in the opinion of the Recovery Operator, they are unable to repair the vehicle at the roadside, we will arrange for the vehicle, you and up to 6 passengers to be recovered to a garage for repair, your home or original destination, whichever is nearer.

Yes they do, with all of the main recovery companies they all ask where you want to be taken to, it's your choice, I have never heard of company disagreeing. Startrescue and rac aa etc mostly use same contractors.

Some of the banks offered free rec if you had certain paid accounts unfortunately banks have decided to drop this and have had dealt with several who thought they had recovery but didn't as didn't read emails

Also most of the free recovery deals from banks or insurance companies is basis roadside or ten mile max recovery

Always carry recovery and insurance details in your car, if for instance you hit a kerb or pothole and burst a tyre it's not classed as a breakdown so recovery companies won't pick you up unless you have insurance details, so you will have to pay up front or we get you removed at your cost ( min £150)

If you run out of fuel or breakdown on the motorway and don't have recovery you have 2 hours then we remove you and your car, if you can't pay then and there we keep your car till you car, if you abandon car to get fuel we take it straightaway, again at your cost

No pressure though

Start rescue for me , their third option INCLUDES home start.

yup ive got their 3rd option with at home

if you take the 4th for europe, you lose at home

so decide which is most important

they have apps for ios/android so you can log a report from your phone and they know where you are etc and calls.
Ive used them last month when serpentine belt snapped, had local guys out within 40 mins and recovered back to to the garage of my choice nearer to home 40odd miles away

usually quidco to be had too

I too used quidco and when I needed them I used the iphone app, you press a button and they call you to ask you where if you have broken down and they know already from the app your location

If you are considering Start Rescue, have a look at Kwik Fit same company providing the service behind the scenes and it was cheaper than Start Rescue for me this year

If they are still doing their fuelcard offer, then a full policy would cost £112.99 plus £50ish topcashback, £50 fuel card, so less than £13 all in.
