Various emergency and breakdown equipment half price at Tesco direct, such as ring effect car travel kit £18.40, ring car first aid kit £7.40

Dual carriageways generally don’t have a safe refuge. Vehicles are hit all the time on hard shoulders it’s by no means a safe system. At the end of the day until we have vehicles that all communicate with each other on the motorway there will always be accidents and deaths


Complete and utter Bollocks. A road as fast and busy as a motorway needs a permanent refuge area. So according to you, if a few people (you know, dads, mums, sons, daughters, brothers etc.) a year get killed in horrific circumstances because of a fatally flawed design, that's OK because there's less pollution. (flirt) The way you reduce congestion is to have a better integrated transport system; less lorries and cars on the road and more on rails. Not use a hard shoulder as a live lane.


I think smart motorway is the way forward...but I agree concept needs to be studied further. Smart motorway does ease congestion. Which is certainly the case with live hard shoulders which means less pollution. And that in theory means less death due to reduction in heavy particulate matter health problems causing respiratory deaths.


No, I hope there's an enquiry into this and other incidents and "Smart Motorways" in general. They're dangerous. The cause of death in incidents like this is undoubtedly, that there was no safe place of refuge. If there was then the lorry wouldn't have ploughed into the car in a live lane and a life lost. Shameful policy by Govt/Highways England. (fierce)


The point he was making is the only way they could have got out and off the road was to jump off the edge of the bridge!

At least with the AA and the RAC you have a chance they will fix your car at the roadside as opposed to other Companies who just tow you to a garage.


Do your wallet a favour and get cover with autoaid. Less them £50 and covers you and your spouse in any car you're driving. £39 via Groupon


Prefer the AA (lol)


never pay the asking price on the website. I usually call them up and get the price reduced. A bit like car insurance, every year they increase it and then you have to phone and get them to reduce to a sensible figure.


Make sure you are aware of what they DON’T cover. And how bad their customer service is.

Bought. Cheers


I have been a member for 2 yrs, my car is under 10 yrs old so thought i'd just get the cheapest in case it broke down and was a bit sceptical but my experience has been good. I called as I had a puncture, they responded to the call quickly, my connection was bad so they took my number and called me back. They use local contractors who called me and gave me an ETA. Turned up a bit later than advised (bit it was 5.30pm which I called so expected) but changed my tyre so it's all I needed. My friend has it also and he had a good experience after his brakes seized, they sent a guy to fix it. I was thinking I may have wasted my money, but it's been OK for me. If you have a decent car which you know is in reasonable condition and just need cheap cover in case the worst happens which you are unlikely to use then go for it.


Looking at the reviews of Emergency Assist I would definitely avoid this company like the plague!


Broke down Easter Sunday. Still waiting for recovery. Luckily we haven’t eaten all the eggs yet. Great price though!


Another vote for AUTOAID. Covers you, not the car and my wife, not the car.

Common law partner. So living together like you're married for 6 months or more. Have to have documentation like bills etc with both names on.


Took it, found them to be a giant pain adding a second party despite offering copies of driving licenses showing same address. Told there's a fee to cancel. Went to Groupon live chat who refunded without question. Must be a few like this it seems. Long hold time for customer service too. Feel I've had a lucky escape.


Thx just got this for £33.15 using the code provided. Had to make a new account for it to go through


This company are apparently arriving to me at 10.15pm after me having called them 7.45pm. This service is not fit for purpose. Leave well alone!


On which site do I add the code HELLO15 ? I cant get it to work on Groupon and thats who I pay the £39 too. Got the code to work thanks OP. Never having used Groupon before what do I do now? Do they send me something or what?Thanks

Just had email saying if your can is over 10 years old you need to call before redeeming voucher


Anyone else had Groupon say the deal was in "processing" and then suddenly the deal vanishes? Customer service say that my credit card blocked payment - I checked, they didn't even receive a request. But the app was giving some weird cryptic messages where a translation clearly hadn't been put in, like a popup window saying "AUTH_SYNC_FAILED" or "CONSTRAINTS_NOT_MET". They now won't honour the coupon code. D'ya reckon they're trying to wiggle out of it?


Not expired - still available on the site for £24. But also - bought mine at 3:35, still processing - is this normal?

It's so funny looking at all the magnitude of problems people have had and the standard response from so called homeserveUK. My comment still holds.. steer well clear. It's dirt cheap for a reason... Sheer incompetence. Nothing more nothing less.. With kindest regards..


Thanks. Just signed up and set a reminder on my Google Calendar to cancel the cover and DD in 12 months time (y)


Hi Rebecca and thanks for replying. However you've deflected the issue - the cartridge in the tap was faulty but rather than fix that, the "plumber" chose to replace the tap instead because he wasn't sure of his ability to fix it! Further, a new appointment was booked for Tuesday but no one bothered to turn up! I'm sure I'll hear more excuses but it's really poor service, or rather no service.

came with a horse and rope, needed to stop off on route to fill boot with hay, he did line it out as to not ruin the carpet


Towing for 2 hours! Dangerous and possibly damaging to the car. Haven't they got flatbeds? (shock)


broke down yesterday a little slow on the phone taking details, and i wasnt too sure of my location, but got there in the end guess he wanted to make sure evey thing was correct. They were more than willing to tow my car back home over 2 hours away! This would of cost me around £200 - £300 if not more, late Saturday evening as stuck in london. well worth the £12 i paid out will be happy to use them in the future


I don't understand. Why did they ask for £120 ? Isn't nationwide recovery included?

Groupon deal 1 year premium breakdown cover for just £24 instead of £91.16

But this review states that its excellent company


Bought the same deal last year. Never used them but this is genuinely a bargain. I thought Start rescue were cheapest until I stumbled across this


They just said it was my own fault for forgetting to turn the lights off. My car (Honda CRV) is stupid, it doesnt have a buzzer to remind you the lights are on when you turn the car off. I ended up buying one of those small powerpacks that can jumpstart the car from Amazon.


What was their reasoning? Shouldn’t they have to come out in that situation


I've had these before, they are cheap but refused to come out when my battery went flat while I was away from home. AA/RAC always come out whatever.

Just let the old policy lapse on the day then order new policy again immediately. Still treated as new customer.


Not sure if this has been covered before but it states that this is only available for "new customers"... i currently have autoaid which expires in 2 weeks, so could I cancel the policy and sign up again? or does this not qualify as a "new customer".... Alternatively, could just cancel the policy and register the new one under my wife. Thoughts?


None of them do... I thought that was included with rac several years ago when I had a 6 inch fuel hose split, they charged me £30 ! Local motor factors wanted ONE pound, but when. you're desperate you pay up, and the barstewards exploit that (mad)


Doesn’t include cost of parts, thought I’d just add as I just found out after purchasing...


They are better because they use local firms to recover and not a franchise network. Every time had to use them I’ve had someone arrive within 30mins even on a Sunday

Update from me. Signed up on the 31st Dec. Received a welcome email on the 15th Jan, and no mention of needing to be ore-assessed before they will cover you. Nothing else received. Boiler was not working this morning showing likely PCB error. Booked a BG engineer Engineer came at lunchtime. Thought I needed to be assessed but said he would see what he could do. He found out I actually did not need to be pre-assessed on this product. I had my PCB replaced, it's 8 years old, and some work on my flue, a bracket was addeded as it needed one due to its length, as they have to give your boiler a once over. All in all a good experience. I may not have needed the PCB but it was fixed efficiently and new PCB so can't be too bad for £99. Will certainly give the boiler extra life. PCB would have been £125-£225 and bracket £15


Just read the above. I was not aware of the the 42 day Chech needed first. So that buggers me. Even though bg have supplied me energy? Non mention of it in their welcome email??

Sounds like my last "experience" with RAC! Not saying these are any cop mind.


Got stuck down the bottom of an icy road a couple of weeks ago- solid ice meant there was no way I could drive back up. Start Rescue told me I wasn't covered for ice, snow or mud. I thought that's what I was paying for. Absolutely useless, am considering getting Green Flag membership (no such t&cs) even though my Start Rescue membership is months away from finishing. It's false economy going for these cheaper quotes. (mad)


I'm having second thoughts about EA now after reading this. I've had a flat battery before and have been covered by my current breakdown company - Start Rescue. I've now read some reviews on their website and I'm not going to take up this offer now! Some customers had to wait for around 3-4 hours for the breakdown company to turn up. I think that it is a brilliant offer if you pay out for it and you have no cause to use them over the year, as you would not have paid out too much for breakdown. I know that Start Rescue is reliable and I'm paying about £40 for full breakdown cover - my gearbox packed up at Bournemouth Airport once and they turned up really quickly and towed my car all the way back to Exeter (around 84 miles), no problems at all.


My car is 11 years old and my son's is a 1994 reg - will these years be covered by this? Thank you.


Thank you, will take a look.

Their website says "What we do not cover - vehicles that have not been serviced and maintained in accordance with manufacturer’s recommendations..." Plenty of scope for dispute here. Not worth taking the risk. Anyway, if you want their "Get You Home" policy it costs £69.99, more expensive than Greenflag


Is it better to stick to autoaid?


Groupon products and services are usually poor quality


So the only benefit of the plus cover over standard is up to £1000 for engine parts if you miss-fuel. The standard cover includes misfuelling , so its not really worth the extra to cover parts for that reason only ( they don't cover parts for any other breakdown ). Neither of these offer nationwide recovery . They only tow to a garage within 15 miles.

Agreed on the jumper cables. Mine are very thick and heavy duty (they also weigh a ton), I've seen others that look like Christmas lights. I can't see anyone else mentioning the tow rope so I assume you are referring to my post. I never said it is pointless. My post was designed to help, not misinform. I simply said in my case, for me personally it is not required. I certainly do not consider a tow rope pointless. It simply isn't required for my daily use and therefore doesn't have a place in what I consider my 'always leave it in the car' kit. I could have elaborated and explained that I don't go off road or camping anymore but as you can see the post was already a monster in size. Granted, if I were going camping, off road, out in snowy weather etc then I would consider adding it. Just as I would consider other gear depending on what I might need. But day to day, for me, it just isn't required. Unfortunatley when we had an old VW camper it was a part of the everyday kit. (excited)


The experts at AA are presumably the marketing people responsible for selling their brand to anyone willing to pay for it. Not sure about AA stuff, but RAC-branded stuff is usually shocking quality - cheap rubbish from China that someone's paid to have the RAC logo printed on it. I doubt that a set of jump cables are gong to be much cop in a set of this size and price. For jump cables to work they need to be thick, and either solid copper or copper-coated aluminium. I'd disagree that the tow-rope is pointless. There are situations where you might find your drive wheels stuck in mud or snow where a quick tow from a friend or passer-by will save you from a 3-hour wait for the rescue service. Have to know where your tow hook is stored, though, as most are removable these days.


Good to have just in case. And as it says the triangle is required by law in some countries. I dont have this kit but I keep some of what it includes in the boot at all times. The triangle, jumper leads, high vis, torch and until recently tow rope. I dont have an electric pump in my car but i have a spare tire and jack. I think the pump is more for topping off at home. In the event of multiple punctures you would need to repair the puncture anyway at which point it is time to call the recovery services. Alternatively you can replace one tire and use one of those spray repair cans on another. They can be used to seal punctures AND inflate the same tire allowing you to drive to safety/a garage, making the pump superfluous. The heaviest thing in the boot is the jumper cables (and tow rope when I had it). Both would be provided by your breakdown / recovery services in an emergency. However if you've just left your lights on while shopping or overnight and find your battery flat when you get in, the cable is nice to have to ask a neighbour or other motorist to give you a jump. OMG but I'm British! I know. I feel your pain, I do. I too would rather call work and feign sickness than ask a stranger for assistance. But you have the choice (I mean, not really). The tow rope isn't something I see myself using. If I need to be towed anywhere I'm calling my breakdown cover and they have tow rope, batteries, lights and all manner of other equipment to make the recovery safe and less hassle. In that instance I don't need to provide anything for them, just gear to keep myself and my family warm and visible. When I had an older car that needed constant assistance, the tow rope made sense, now, not so much. If you do break down then as long as it is safe to do so you are supposed to move away from the car to await recovery. This makes sense, if the car - now an obstacle for traffic - gets hit so do you. So breakdown often means facing the elements. If it is summer then great. British summer.. not so much. Anything else see below. I also keep several small ponchos, at least one blanket and additional reflective shoulder and waist straps for passengers in case of an emergency. The ponchos are disposable and 3 together take up less space than a paperback in the boot, they're also clear so the high vis stuff can be seen through them. The reflective bands are the same cyclists use and take up little space but give peace of mind. The blanket is a blanket. It does blanket things. I broke down in January on a busy A road with no battery for hazards, or phone to call the police or rescue services. It was unpleasant. Do not expect people to stop and help you during rush hour in the middle of winter. They might, but most don't. In my experience. Unless you flag them down. But again. British. You understand. 2 hours in the freezing wet dark with nothing but my high vis clad body, a torch and a tiny red triangle to warn oncoming rush hour traffic that my car is blocking one of two lanes on a roundabout exit is nothing compared to speaking to a stranger. Unlit road btw. (horror) I recommend keeping the above as a minimum if you are expecting harsh weather. It sounds like a lot to be carrying around but the reality is, only the coat and jumper cables take up any space. I dont think any of this is optional personally. I would rather have a safety net in case of emergency than not. And if we are going to be stuck on the hard shoulder awaiting recovery (even knowing it is on the way) this is the minimum I would want for myself and family. A quick note on the single coat. Im not heartless; my children always have coats 'just in case' so the ponchos are enough. However if there is a problem i know they will be safely tucked up under plastic and blankets snug in their coats while im left in the rain waiting to speak to the recovery guy or trying to get to a phone (assuming no service or we have to use one of those motorway boxes). So I get a thick coat. Because no blanket for me.


Do they not do the breakdown kit on it's own? I have relatives and friends with German cars, would be the perfect gift.


Heat from me and a great post. The more people with safety kits in the car the better.
