RAC sell their brand logo to be shoved on any old Chinese rubbish. Pretty poor show in my opinion.

kevl

Quote from RAC: Towing with a rope. Towing a car with a tow-rope, often as a means of recovering a broken down vehicle, was reasonably common in years past. It's still legal, subject to complying with the relevant road rules and regulations, but it's not something we generally recommend. So how can they endorse this?

saintsmoney

"That's not a tow rope... this is a tow rope" (lol) 10 Tonne limit on yours - very impressive & not crazy dear if you're into 4x4's This cheap tow strap is BS rated to 2000kg but it probably has to withstand 2500-3000kg to qualify. for the 2000kg rating

gkdkfcd2003

I'm really wary of these low rating tow ropes from the likes of Halfords etc. I had one in a kit with jump leads etc and it looked flimsy as anything. I'm not sure on the "2 tonnes" whether that's a 2 tonne car on a flat road with no brakes etc or whether it's a 2 tonne car out of a load of snow, up a hill etc etc. I bought this https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Tow-Strap-4x4-recovery-10-ton-6-mtr-with-2-tested-bow-shackles-HEAVY-DUTY/192157120513?hash=item2cbd74f801:g:~w4AAOSwR9tbof5i a couple of years ago and used it to tow people out of the snow last winter without any issue using the towing eye on both cars (apparently not supposed to use the tow bar). Granted not exactly a deal compared to £4 but I'd not like to be around if a rope went when under tow strain, especially if the metal clip went.

Had insurance with these guys, boiler broke, engineer tried to “upgrade” the system which the insurance wouldn’t pay for, but once I explained everything they didn’t just send a different company to fix the issue (as I was without hearing for a week), they provided me with electric rads free of charge, compensated me for additional electric costs and gave me £200 compensation as an apology. They are not the issue, the companies that come out are.

Aletank

Says electrical wiring ? So if my electric roller garage door was to fail and it turned out to be the motor that had gone, would that be covered ?

I have similar experience with them total waste of premiums paid for 4 yrs

oscar72

this lot will do anything and everything possible to make sure you can't cancel, including the call transfer merry go round, ignore emails, tell you they didn't get a signed for letter. After you cancel the Direct debit they'll send you a huge fine for not cancelling with them first, you then start the merry go around again trying to contact them.

Rogue66

Brilliant as my renewal is due next month and would have cost £48.31. I just paid this £39 via Groupon (plus possible 8% Quidco cashback!) To answer some of the other questions: Groupon code valid til end of Sep 2018. Autoaid site to enter code allows you to choose a start date for policy (I chose 6 Oct when my current one expires and it seems to have worked OK They are not just to tow you. I have been with them several years and had to use them at least a couple of times. Have always been easy to use, they arranged mechanic/truck to come quickly (although you are free to arrange your own). You pay directly for the callout then claim back form Autoaid. Again thsi has always been very straightforward for me and I have never had any issue with claim/payout form Autoaid

Fair point mate but this company is notorious for leaving the vulnerable stranded on purpose.

Tay

To be fair many of the recovery services are similar, I remember having the top notch AA cover many years ago, they left us at the side of the M25 for over 6hrs. I had my wife and my 2 week old son in the car at the time. They never apologised, they never offer anything up as a teaser for a renewal, I voted with my feet and vowed never to use them again. Several years ago the RAC sent me a reminder for my bike cover, I choose not to renew as I really didnt use it a lot, sods law, I had a flat in the middle of nowhere, I had to resign up at a huge premium £100 + normal fee's, only later to find that they had auto renewed my original policy. So I did have RAC cover at the time despite the woman quoting back details from my supposed 'old' account. We reached an understanding afterwards and I'm still with them, few places cover multiple cars and bikes etc. For the most part its piece of mind knowing you have cover, the fun begins when you test it.

A people carrier with 6 people (could be 7 max as 7 seater family car(.

mmachine

sounds like another way of just getting out of there obligations-your cars motd and insured so whats the problem,just clamp down on miles covered within your breakdown coverage period simple,ie put a limit on miles between mots,just like all types of insurance policies you only ever know how good or bad they are is when you have to claim

mmachine

so thats 1 driver and 4 passengers - total of 5 people, so what size of vehicle do you want cover for

likesang

Sounds like they didn't make their car roadworthy thus making their car insurance invalid...

TheDealMonster

I'm sorry I don't have the documentation, but it must have been different because there was never any mention of '3 months', it was always '1 month' that they kept mentioning. My first breakdown was because of electronic handbrake, and the second breakdown was a gearbox failure. So yes, unrelated.

eatmybogbrush

I had national cover and thought they would not charge £40 per call out for local.......WRONG, they wanted £40 before they would even speak to me, very arrogant too, it's in very misleading small print, told them to stick it up their A**E hole, lucky I had cover from my insurance Churchill who were brilliant. And no this is for anytime during cover not just the first 72hrs. I don't recommend this company full stop!! Read reviews on trust pilot says it all.

janner66

Gleechy said and I quote "Phoned the customer services & was told the £40 is for call outs during the first 72hrs just to prevent those who break down then join." Hopefully this is the case.

swafe

It is, I bought this last week and it's 40 for every call out, it says this when you put the Groupon code in on the website to claim, no mention of this in Groupon so I feel its slightly shady, although there is an option when confirming it through the link of waiving the excess for 4.50 I think it is

zaheer2003

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.

Feneture

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

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?

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.

For all the slapping down of this deal because it's selling at rrp you are in the minority as the voting point to be it being a good deal, the community that makes this site has spoken. This deal is for someone looking for a cheap car and not too fussy about what they drive.

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.
