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).

Don't they have a cooling down period of around 3 days after registration to call out

roonerspism

Used today after procrastinating with who to go with!

goingfortheone

Called them out once and they turned up in 30 minutes. They also have a phone app you can use if you break down. Only slight downside is you are only allowed 6 call outs in 12 months but if this happens you would just renew early and even then it would still work out cheaper than the main break down services. Also great value European cover if you are thinking of driving abroad.

Brightone

I've used them too and never had a problem. Called them out on a few occasions and always hassle free.

To be fair AA not much better these days. We broke down with 3 kids in car, luckily just local. Took them about 3 hours to get there, call centre said wifey (and thus in effect all the kids) had to wait in the car as it was her policy. (fierce) The mechanic was ace though, he rang to say get them all home in a taxi. But call centre people were a bunch of monkeys.

biggrub

Green Flag are pretty rubbish. Broke down at midnight on A303 and despite several calls because we had young children, they finally bothered to turn up 6 hours later. Apparently their one recovery had been overwhelmed on that particular night....NEVER AGAIN

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.

They should do it all the time? What sort of entitled comment is that? No one “should” offer any discounts to anyone. They are choosing to do this. They are a business to make money. They are not a charity. Clearly you do not understand economics and business

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

On the Juke there is no rear key operated hatch lock, its solenoid operated so it cant be overridden by a key from outside. I'm not the only person with this issue, many Juke and Note owners are suffering the same fault. Its not as though hatchbacks are a new concept, on my 20 year old Vectra they have the same setup but the wiring used was designed for durability, alas Nissan fall short in there use of quality wiring.

EzDeal18

nisan=renault

Mr_Gus

Ralph, any vehicle ought have a puff or 3 of graphite powder in the locks annually to help facilitate smoother function, whilst not saying it wasnt cruddy wire, the graphite powder (at under a quid delivered from ali-express) helps take the tension out of lock mechanisms... worth wandering around the home etc & using in window / conservatory locks etc after usin it on your vehicles for smoother movement in the keyhole & catches.

marty-401

They must know you are going to need roadside assistance if you drive a Nissan (shock)

Ralph888

This breakdown service included with servicing came in handy when my Nissan Juke's boot refused to open. The breakdown man said they have had alot of calls due to the crappy wire boot harness breaking. The wires are so poor that every time you open and close the hatch they weaken and eventually snap. Apparently it was a Renault based cost saving that now renders all Jukes with limited lifespan due to penny pinching accountants reducing the quality of the wire used in the car. My previous Nissan's never had these issues, wont buy another one that's for sure.

Has anyone actually made a claim for travel insurance on either of the two provides? How was your experience? I'm with neither and my annual travel insurance is due for renewal. It keeps on going up every year to the point that I may consider getting one of these accounts as I take out breakdown cover as well. Thanks.

themadgoose

The real moneysaving thing to do would be to use the Coop account to get your £5.50 a month. And then use Nationwide Flex Plus for the rest, thus saving £2. So that's what I do.

ShouldntForceSignUps

Breakdown will be hit and miss depending on the area you're in. Nationwide has contracts covering a particular area. In my area, the company they use is running some neanderthal outreach programme. Both times they were useless. In the first instance, they acted like my car was running normally when it wouldn't even reach 40 mph. On the second occasion a few days later when it broke down completely, I insisted they tow it to a garage I trust. En-route I was surprised there was onboard entertainment. Unfortunately that entertainment was a rotund aesthetically-challenged gentleman driving telling me that various pedestrians would 'get it'. Those poor ladies, I suspect they never got to experience the undoubted delights of the Casanova seated beside me. Funnily enough, my trustworthy garage found there was a problem and fixed it, and low and behold, my car was able to reach the dizzying speeds of 40+ mph once again. For me, within my area, I rate Nationwide's breakdown cover as next to useless. They will not attempt to fix the issue. They will not even take a look for you. If I was really desperate, I might let them tow my car again depending on how far I am from civilization. However, in most instances, I'd sooner push it to my favoured garage myself. Maybe some passing ladies would be impressed enough for me to 'get it'.

ShouldntForceSignUps

I've done a phone claim, albeit for a damaged phone, not lost or stolen, with Nationwide. Easy to claim and phone back good as new in about a week.

MrHappyGilmore

The best travel insurance I think it Aviva but it always costs around £25 for 5-7 days which adds up quick when you are going away a few times. Is there any particular product you recommend which covers everything like this bank account? Or even individual policies which may work out cheaper?
