Has anyone had success getting topcashback to track alongside this offer?

RAC are an absolute disgrace of a service provider! They have by far the worst service of any kind of service provider (and I mean from any kind of service provider possible). I have used AA in the past and decided to switch over because AA hiked their prices. But now I am genuinely regretting that decision. I have been sat with in my broken down car for close to 2 hours now and just been told to wait for another 90 minutes. They will not tell me how long it will take for the help to come. Just that I am next on the list. Well, I heard that 2 hours ago as well. When asked if there will definitely be help coming in 90 minutes I get told "we can't promise you that" because the driver hasn't actually accepted the job and might accept another "more serious" job on the way. Now by serious I bet it doesn't necessarily mean their car is on fire but the the issue might be with a car part deemed more serious on THEIR SYSTEM. I pay close to £250 for a family plan that's to no use when I need it!!! I'm stuck in the scorching sun and can't move my car due to the problem. Please don't make the same mistake as me. Go with someone local or with the AA. I wish I could give a lower rating than this!

OldMarchHare

Just signed up. Don't bother with 'topcashback' or 'quidco' with this deal. It's only on the official RAC website. Using either cashback site links you to a "special deal" which worked out for me at £30 more than RAC site. Better to save money up front than hope to get cashback later, or not at all.

Emergency assist or rescuemycar.com on groupon any of these good looking for cover, had rescue my car, broke down at weekend. they used agency, who did not have my renewal on record, so the only option offered was to pay and then get back from rescuemycar, not the sort of breakdown cover i needed, got premium refundedand went elsewhere, would not consider them at all.

For roadside, recovery and onward travel with free personal cover is £150 or £50 Tesco vouchers! (shock) How's this saving!

zcaprd7

You put the solar panel in the dash or window, and plug it into the cigarette lighter, and it slowly trickle charges the battery... I doubt it would charge a flat battery, but it keeps it topped up whilst the car sits there unused (burglar alarms and other systems are a constant drain).

Thanks for this OP. Have needed to look to renew recovery cover that has run out

steve.bath

I will second that, terrible service now, nothing like what they used to be years ago, avoid at all costs I would say, I’ve used these twice with my company car in the last 18 months and had an 8 hour wait and 3 hour wait

Halfmad

We had a similar experience last year, they ended up sending a local garage after an 11 hour wait overnight. Never again

smckirdy

For the lockdown, if you can already work at home that's where you are going to be for the duration. Personally I think one of the bundled bank offers with breakdown cover will be a better deal than this.

Timschoice

Definitely not. When there’s a terrorist event, it’s all about the police, but no one seems to be applauding them at the moment even though they are dealing with all types of scum and can hardly maintain the social distance? Before that, the military, again that’s gone quiet... (confused)

What supplier is that mate?

soulman123

Would not touch them ever again. In a nutshell broke down, told to wait 4 hours never turned up. I called up and was told because I broke down on a Monday they were busy towing people from the weekend. Personal experience for me says don’t waste your time, glad I was not with anyone else.

skdotcom

I broke down just before xmas, It took them 6 hours to recover me. Sat there in the freezing cold with no acces to toilet or anything. I was not impressed as the guy that finally came wasn't even RAC and had been sitting around all afternoon waiting for a job. Idiots.

stefwalker

Mainly been good but last few not. Battery needed replacing. I'd broken down in freezing cold. He charged it for me to get home and told me I wasn't a priority so he'd come 3pm next day to fit! I had to miss a day off work. Then had mot and the battery was loose. Called them back to re-do it and they said ye it was loose, it should have had spacers fitted in it. First guy mumbled about a belt gone when smoke came out of bonnet but said nothing more. I then broke down the following week as my fan belt snapped whilst driving along which wasn't pleasant and lost the steering. They took all 3 as callouts even though I asked them not to. Complained and they cancelled the call outs and sent me £25 cheque. I'd probably swap to AA next time

That was the first thing that was mentioned. I’ve also been with Autoaid for about 4 years up till this point and couldn’t fault them. That is until I needed their services, full review on trusted reviews. The main problem was the “helpful and knowledgeable” local operatives were next to useless. They were lying to Autoaid as my wife was listening to conversations by their operative when I was being told different things on the other line! Anyway without boring you anymore full review of what happened on trusted reviews. Good luck ;)

mbadrealam

If you state you have an under 5 yr young child with you Breakdown firms put you on their Priority list.

mbadrealam

Autoaid have been great. Whenever we've had to seek assistance they have been very helpful. Communication 7* Local recovery firm have attended with 30 mins. Very knowledgeable & helpful operatives too.

Porridgewog

😬 My wife who was 8mths pregnant and had a 3yr old toddler was stranded on the M42 for 5 Hours with a puncture! They are cheap for a reason, outsourcing isn’t necessarily the best way. Good luck getting recovered.

Been with the AA for many years and they usually cave in and offer some sort of discount to match (or come close to) their online prices for new customers. Not this time. Cheapest they'd offer me is £70 more expensive than the new customer price. Sure I'd lose the 'gold benefits' (which I never asked for). Will take up this offer. Thanks OP.

Youre not supposed to change a tyre on the motorway as it will likely get you killed. You have to be towed off the motorway first to a safe area before a tyre change is performed. This happened to a work colleague and after calling the rescue service, she had to be towed off from the motorway first on a trailer to a car park and then the tyre change was performed.

julieallen

not really, the cheap code readers are ok for basic stuff, and on occasion can get the car out of limp mode, but thats about it. Any garage should have a diagnostic kit, if they are using a £20 one I would go elsewhere tbh. Even with dealer level stuff, if you don't understand the readings, they are useless to you, I don't on mine, and while its useful for some stuff, not for everything. I have a rattle on the engine for example, and I can see which readings are wrong, but what I cant tell is what is causing the fault as I don't know enough to work that out. I know its a fuel problem, probably injector related, but got someone coming out next week, charges £54 who I know will spend an hour and tell me exactly what the problem is at the end of it.

wooddoor1016

Groupon are doing a deal with Autoaid

Rustybucket

You sure know your stuff. I wouldn't know where to start with car repairs. There's no Haynes manual for my car for start. Would there be any use me buying such a device so I could tell my local repair shop what to fix at least?

julieallen

What kits on ebay cover and can diagnose manufacturer specific codes, and can actually specific what the codes mean? I have a cracked copy of Peugeot Planet and it is vastly superior to anything else I've used, including £3k+ diagnostic kits. Theres no way the RAC are going to purchase dealer level kit for every technician & every type of car out there, it would cost them millions. Having said that, I had to ring AutoAid out last year and the local garage they used turned up with a Bluetooth dongle and app on his phone, which read the code and he googled to find out what it was. He then informed me it was a failed injector, I told him it would more likely be a fuel filter, but he insisted it wasn't. One fuel filter later (which I did myself as he wouldn't touch it), car worked perfectly and still is 9 months later. Autoaid are decent but the level of service totally depends on the local garage they are using.

Funnily enough the one I have its called motion shock sensor and not g sensor. Honestly they r pretty much the same.

Randy_Osborne

I wouldn’t expect to see a parking monitor G-sensor on a £10 dash cam which would get the camera to record even when it’s parked and your not in it, fair enough about getting open minded reviews though that s part of why I wanted to sign up

mazabits

It's not mate. They come from same factory. I use a £6 cam that records in HD. Same specs at fraction of the cost. Beauty of this community is not just finding a bargain but you also get reviews from a more open minded audience. Unlike Amazon with paid for good reviews. Whether a post is hot or cold you get more Intel on here and getting cold votes is actually helpful.

Randy_Osborne

Yeah there are cheaper dash cams out there at the end of the day but if you look at the table it shows some good features which you wouldn’t see on a £10 dash cam . It’s a reliable brand aswel

how does RAC compare to AA, anyone know?

RoosterNo1

... their service is pants (see bbc watchdog)

RayB

gypsyboy mentioned AutoAid, who are now on the MSE website, and who I was with for over 20 years until this year - they were taken over by another Company and I couldn't renew online due to a fault with their website. This problem seems to be more common now i.e. a good firm gets taken over and they mess it up straight away! I am now with Eversure Insurance who charged just over £38 for comprehensive cover including home start and recovery for vehicles up to 20 years old. Top Cashback has not performed so good lately, so I used Quidco more this year who have improved a lot.
