RAC - Basic Roadside Breakdown cover for £14.50 per year inc Quidco

Found 27th May 2010
Ok so quidco have just sent through their new deals, one of which is the following :

RAC Cashback rates

£65for a genuine new car insurance policy
£20for roadside cover
£20for roadside + at home cover
£20for roadside cover + nationwide recover
£5for roadside + at home + nationwide recovery
£40for roadside + at home + nationwide recovery + onward travel
£5for a Legal Expenses Single Policy
£10for a Legal Expenses Joint Policy
£15for a Legal Expenses Family Policy

Bearing in mind that a roadside recovery is £34.50, if you deduct the quidco offering of £20 cashback, this makes it £14.50 for a years worth of "getting you off the motorway".

Bearing in mind this is personal cover as well, this means that it can be used whatever car you are in!

The only thing to be weary of is that they will only tow you 10 miles, however i guess that means off at the next junction, so at least you;re off, and also remember that they claim that over 80% of problems are fixed by the roadside.

Have also noticed (maybe i should have put this one as the title!) that if you pick the named car named driver, this reduces the online rate to £28, and therefore the cost after quidco to £8 per year!!

Would be greatful if someone could verify that i've not gone mad and made a glorious error

T&C's (quidco)
Cashback is only available for annual payers (monthly payments are excluded from this offer). In order to receive your cashback you must click through to the RAC site via the Quidco link. It is important you generate a new quote and purchase directly. If the quote has been generated via another site or advertisement you will not receive your cashback. Cashback will not be paid on any policies cancelled during the 14 day cooling off period. Contract must go live and be fully completed. Renewals do not qualify. Validation of policy may take up to 90 days. The Quidco cashback is offered and paid by Quidco, NOT RAC. This offer is eligible on tracked transactions reported and validated by RAC. ***The programme is unable to accept earnings enquiries on RAC products more than 12 weeks after the transaction date. Please keep your quote reference in case you need to raise an earnings enquiry.***



You aren't supposed to include Quidco etc in the price of a deal.

Sounds good.

He can do what he likes, as it is Misc...:thumbsup:

I did the £28 "vehicle only" cover earlier in the month and Quidco tracked no problem. You can set a future start date for your policy as well if your current one hasn't ended yet (am assuming RAC will validate the quidco at that point). However you look at it £8 (after quidco) beats the £52 quote The AA gave me for my basic roadside policy renewal.

Pretty sure I saw a deal floating around the other day for The AA vehicle only cover for £7 (after quidco) so I guess it depends who you prefer...

Took similar deal on this last year for daughter .... let hers expire for few days (they did offer to price match the cheap intro deal on renewal but of course there wouldnt have been any quidco) .... and have just taken out a new policy for her and quidco has tracked no problem. They paid out fairly quickly last year too :-)

thanks toibs
