If you want roadside assistance RAC offering a basic cover on car for £27.99, if you go via top cash back you will get back £12.62 and the cover will be £15.37 for a year!!!
I don't know about Quidco but try it...

Cashback takes around 6 months to go into account but does track.

Thanks.

its a good deal but the most basic cover. If anyone looking at this deal is considering a higher level of cover then take a look at the nationwide flexplus account. £10pm and level of cover for roadside assistance is on par with RAC's £100+ annual cover

You also get annual travel insurance and a few other benefits with the bank account. Well worth it

Thanks OP

You can potentially get £75 Topcashback for the nationwide flex plus account or if you know someone already with nationwide I believe they have a refer a friend scheme.

If your car is more than 10 years old then you can't get this deal - RAC force you to get a higher level of cover which sucks

Luckily mine is 05

Doesn't matter how much it costs. It's how long they take to turn up when you need them.
And after the RAC left my daughter stranded, broken down on a busy roundabout in the middle of Stevenage for three hours, I'd recommend AutoAid to anybody.

Another option to anyone reading this, grab yourself an AA credit card and get the basic level cover for £2 for the year! I got the credit card 3 years ago as there was an offer of £1 recovery. I have never used the card for anything, but I've just renewed my cover roadside recovery plan for £2 for 12 months cover! I did the same last year too and the year before it was just a £1..... Worth inquiring about if you haven't got a card, but they just call me every year a couple of weeks before my current cover runs out! Total bargain & I have used it on one occasion!

Quidco is offering £12.50 cash back on RAC breakdown policies up to £50

That's nothing, last year it took Green Flag 8 hours to come to me broken down by the roadside. Apparently men aren't a priority and the muppets sent the recovery truck to someone with a puncture!! Still, it was unacceptable so I took it to the FSA and got some money off them, but it was the principal and annoyance more than some compensation.

Anyway, for every bad story there is going to be a good one but I won't be going with GF this year (yes I know they use regional contracted companies, but evidently the ones near me were rubbish), it'll be Nationwide's Flexplus for me. Plus deposit £2500 and you'll get 2.4% net interest, which goes towards the £10 monthly fee.

Try AutoAid - £41 a year, full cover, incl Home Start and paid hotel if you need it. It's Pay and Claim breakdown insurance, not straight forward recovery. But works just the same - you call, they arrange some local recovery firm, you pay for it and then get your money back.

My cashback only just got paid from back in May when this offer came around last time.

Green flag have a good deal and quidco offer £25 cashback

Thanks, that reminds me, need to sort mine out. They sent me a silver card for being with em 6 years, trying to make me feel special.
Home, roadside and onward travel for 2 people.............£200 robbing buggas!

Been using rescue my car for a few years, only had to call them out once and they arrived in about 50 mins, I only have the basic cover for around £18 which means in the event of a breakdown you have to pay a £40 fee, but how often do you break down?

RAC roadside cover,Waste of time in my opinion they will only take your car up to 10 miles.After that its between £5 and £7 a mile charge.Its ok if you actually never go more than 10 miles from home.

AutoAid is great, and I had considered it for this year, but the only slight issue is that it covers the policy holder (and your legal spouse) but not the car. So that's fine for a couple but not if other people in the house would drive your car.

Reading up the policy from Nationwide (actually provided by Britannia Rescue), it covers the car AND the driver in another car I.e. you get the best of both.

You really need to read the t&cs when it comes to this stuff because some of the very basic policies will only tow you to a preferred garage and then you're potentially tied in there for a repair.

what is diff between this and other breakdown cover policy?

start rescue doing £17.79 with £2.69 cashback ie£15.10 pound more for national breakdown any good?

I recently broke down and AA collected me and towed my to my prefered garage but the driver believed my basic cover (the cheapest one available) wouldnt give me this service again if I were to break down again. Thinking of either upgrading or taking out an RAC. Anybody know if this is true that I wouldnt get towed again on the basic plan?

Have called out rac on Sunday night and they took 2 hours.
Year before called out Aa during the day who took 1h 30. Not sure where they get the response times of under 1hour from

I looked at this, this year, and personally, I would avoid. The reason is that the very basic cover will only tow you to a 10 mile radius, but that wasn't the reason...the real reason is the national recovery will only tow you home or to your 'destination'. Now what if you want towing to your preferred garage? Doesn't look like an option no matter how much you pay for their top policies!

Without trying to sound unhelpful, you'll find the answers you are looking for just by reading the T&Cs.

AA doubled my premium this year, even though I'm a 'valued' gold member. I'll be trying Autoaid £41 cover for me and husband, this'll cover us with our cars and motorbikes. Not all companies offer cover for motorbikes.

Can't see anything about discounted basic roadside cover when I visit the AA Rewards credit card website. Is this deal still on?
