    Yep, im going to purchase mine later on today
    If you go through quidco, and buy there packages (cheapest being £35) youll get £20 back, so taking it down to £15 for the year.

    RAC and greenflag are also on there

    RAC online is £32 to £33 for Roadside Recovery on its own. QuidCo cashback is £15

    Choices eh

    Just looked again and it appears to be just £29.99 for single membership with RAC.

    Makes the aa slightly cheaper than rayman

    Also, just wanted to let you know, just been looking at roadside cover for myself.
    If you want to cover YOUR CAR instead of yourself, for this your car has to be UNDER 10 years old, but, its only £31.80, so with quidco takes it down to £11.80 for the year - bargain

    Also covers you rather than the car, as a driver or passenger in any vehicle.

    Also, the reason i picked the AA over the others is its a faster payment back, and the stats are just ever so slightly better than the other 2

    Sorry, if it appears im arguing with you, but im not, the £34.88 package from the AA covers you instead of the car, with £20 cashback

    Ladies and gents.....Get the hangbags.....out!

    Fight fight :thumbsup:

    Both are pretty much the same. I'm with the RAC though. I see way more RAC patrols on the road than AA patrols, so, as I get put to the back of every queue when it comes to braking down (not a female on her own, do not have a baby, not old and fragile, don't sound attractive to the RAC man)...I like to think the RAC may respond quicker as they seem to be everywhere anyway.

    I guess, im just loyal to the AA as i ave insurance with them, but, also my mums with them, so i know what there like
    So, as im female, and have a baby (well 2, but still young i guess) will i get put to frontish of the queue if i break down :-D

    Hehe I didn't think you were arguing with me ;-) I would rather see alternatives posted for choice myself :-D

    LOL! thats just lazy :giggle:
    Really must get round to buying mine later, dont have the time or the patience at the mo, but, i really dont trust my car!

    And, cant rely on my neighbours to come get me if my car goes :giggle:

    Not much between AA and RAC really. I guess it's down to personal choice I've used both and had no problem with either.

    About the AA insurance though... They couldn't provide the cheapest quotes or the best cover at any time I've tried them and for quite a few people. So I would say look around and try as many insurance companies before accepting AA quotes.

    Again, I'm not arguing with you by the way :-D

    Didnt think you were :thumbsup: :-D
    When its renewal time ill be getting my house/car insurance through quidco anyway no doubt :giggle:

    That's a good point If you're a female and your car breaks down whilst you're alone, both RAC and the AA will make you a priority [rightly so] ;-)

    Don't be so blonde! You tell them and your at the top of the list.

    Of course As mum and kids you'll be a high priority too ;-)

    I know its a bit cheeky..but what i do is have have the RAC/AA membership registered at my parents place, which means i get homestart (for free) at mine..Been doing this for years without any problems! I know its cheating but ...

    Thats a great idea,that is until the day you're car breaks down whilst visiting your parents.:giggle:

    I wish i had somewhere to do that too, but since i dont talk to my mum its impossible!
    Excellent idea, would have never thought of it though....

    "hehe you must have a crap car if you need to do this all the time"

    :-D

    Daily car is a nice new shiny BMW so no troubles there!
    To be honest, i mainly used this on older Merc classics which i used to restore, where the winter months take their toll..

    good idea tho cheekyboy_123

    hello all, sorry for causing an arguement :giggle:

    lots of helpful responses as usual and as a mum of 2 little un's
    I need to renew fast, would register for mum and dads but they are only 2 streets away

    To be honest with you imk - you could register at any address as long as you trust them enough not to open your mail..Shouldn't make any difference and you get the benefit of "Homestart"!
