    AA cover renewal

    Just renewed my cover for £89 a year (2 year renewal) - Home Start and Roadstart.

    Might be helpful for anyone interested in a premium recovery cover. Phone up and ask at renewal stage

    Or (from) £33 a year at 2gether? Even cheaper when on offer at Wowcher.

    Probably just as well you didn't put this in Deals as you might have felt a very cool draught.

    I really didn't fancy going to a budget provider, hence why I stated a premium recovery cover, I know it isnt for everyone hence I put it in MISC, McDonalds is cheaper than Byrons, but some people want a premium product.

    I've used most of them over the years and the budget providers are no better or worse than the AA. Nowadays, you're just as likely to get the same breakdown truck come out to you if you use the AA, RAC or 2gether.

    But, if you feel better paying over the odds for the same product, feel free to do so. This is Hot UK Deals though and £89 for fairly basic breakdown cover is not much of a deal unless anyone is stupid enough to let the AA renew automatically at £200+. (_;)

    ​not fancy enough for you, which burger chain do you view as more premium then? LOL

    ​fair enough, I got excellent service from them and their customer service is very good, whereas budget is budget for a reason.

    ​I have to agree with you I've been with AA and RAC I was pleased with neither since then I've been with autoaid for last 7 odd years very happy paying less than £50 for personal cover for myself and hubby. The one you mention 2gether is that personal cover?

    yeah theres 6 of them in total, Byrons is the opposite quality to McDonalds which was the point so have a great day.

    Rescue my car, £17 + £40 excess should I need them, That's just rescue though, think they have an homestart option though.

    I've only ever broke down once in 13 years and that was just a fanbelt.!

    I just renewed with Greenflag. I've not noticed any difference between AA, RAC or Greenflag except that Greenflag is half the price of the other two!

    I've had to use the service roughly once every 2 years, and the older car is rattling & the parking break can lock up when starting up sometimes so I'm not going to let the cover lapse as that car is on its last legs!

    I tend to go for car cover rather than personal cover as up to four people use the two cars so it's cheaper that way.

    Never ever scrimp on the homestart cover, most times I've had to call them out its been for the car being a non-starter at home (not battery related, I've got jump leads for that even though it scares the crap out of me).

    I used to like Patty and Bun but a bit too greasy for me. I like the 6 ales for £10 at Byron but agree Patty & Bun my preference out of the 2

    I will never use Autoaid again. I was with them for years. On the day of Brexit, as a leave voter I decided to ditch my German car. At 5.30 in the morning on the way to the gym I stupidly drove into a flooded road and had to abandon the car. When I called them they point blank refused to assist me because I didn't have a credit card on me. This was 8 miles in the countryside from where I lived. Luckily I was double insured because I have Flex Account plus who managed to recover my vehicle efficiently.

    ​wow you must have been unlucky I was trapped in the car with 4 kids and hubby in a flooded road which might I add a tiny micra drive through fine but my zafira decided to steal in the middle (I blame hubby's driving skills) they came out and I've not had to pay for my last 4 call outs at all for some reason. I've never been asked if I have a credit card though or a way in which to pay. I think you just got unlucky. but I will say this they rarely try and fix the problem rather just tow you to a garage.

    totally agree. My Dad has used the AA for 20 years and probably called them out 5 times over that time. Twice in the last two years and they took 3 hours to arrive last time and said he was the only one on duty in Sussex (4pm on a friday)! Budget is probably better than the AA around here.
