I took out RAC through Quidco, cachback paid out no problem.

Bit cheeky to need it as a supplement anyway. Seems these "Breakdown" guys like to exclude anything that is most probably going to occur to the average absent minded motorist (lost keys, locked out, run out of petrol ....).

I have done this with the RAC for the last 4 years, and quidco has paid out every time......HOT

Never had an issue with RAC not paying out on Quidco, At the moment it says payment will be made by March 18, and the gift card can be claimed until 21st May so worth going for. I always switch between the two as they always double the price on renewal so I've had to go with AA this year.

If you are going with Quidco, I would try this as it often works even when the T&Cs exclude cashback site offers.

If you can get both then you are geting roadside & relay for just £20 for the year

benasipro - You would have a long wait claiming from Quidco anyway! They take ages to pay up.

Question is how much are the RAC charging for their services under this offer? I use the all-inclusive (but not including European cover) AutoAid scheme run by Boncaster Insurance Services in Brentwood, Essex which I have been a member of for years and years - I am currently paying less than £40 a year.

Yep I renewed yesterday too.

My Topcashback paid out £80 last year too, so they paid me to have instead. Did take 3 months to verify and payout after putting in missing cashback claim.

Well happy!!

Just used 31 Dec 2016 now £75.00 but you get everything, if you go on the RAC website this offer is worth £144.00 +. This was an excellent find.

How come this deal is cheaper than standard one?

​I cant believe,shame if i waited few extra days i could done it looking your deal.Anyway all best and happy new year.I think i need to stop for a while checking this site because i spend a fortune.

Had the worst experience with RAC, been a member for almost 2 years covered for parts and labour up to £850.00.
ripping people off, will do anything just to
charge you a lot of money despite being covered. Only front spring broke, asked me for a full service history, then had to go back to the garage to have it written that they did my service and then RAC rejected it, apparently garage that's been doin all my cars for the past 10years is not vat registered.
Absolutely joke the whole RAC company.
Do your google search on RAC customer reviews. Absolutely disgusting what RAC does to their customers!!!!

Every year the RAC says my sister in laws membership is going up. So she says they will cancel and go with AA and they then say she can have the same price as last year. They rely on people not haggling and accepting big price increases after the first year cheap deal.

Wouldn't touch the RAC again. Had a breakdown earlier this year repaired at roadside. They claim they only charge for the part not the labour, when I looked up the part later it was half the price paid to them. I'd expect to pay more, but not that much more (£150 vs £309) Complained, and they refused to discuss the matter. Never again.

In that case you won't get 42.50 as it states on Quidco that this cashback is:

"for fully paid Personal Cover breakdown policies with a value of £51-£100" (ie not vehicle cover, where the cash back is actually only £42 IF YOU SPEND ABOVE £100!)

As I said, as a couple it works out ok for us and the cashback on RAC can take months to pay out, I have seen complaints of having to wait 6 months so yeah it's totally up to the buyer. The cashback goes up and down but just wanted to share an option with people

I think CashBack is around £30-35 for a standard (£75) RAC membership now.

So anyone recommended would have to give away £5-10 to reward their friend with £25 - albeit, both 'paid' in M&S Vouchers over Cash.

Although TCB of £35.70 can actually be boosted by 7% if selecting M&S vouchers - so would be £38 in M&S voucher for a new sign up - or take a £13 'hit' to £25 - and your friend/recommender will get double your give away in M&S Vouchers.

So essentially, you need to have selfless friends.

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!
