I have a policy with them. Called them out for a dead battery. They use third party recovery guys. One eventually arrived 3 hours later but did sort it out. Note that they will also not tow your car more than 20 miles so if you are far from home, you need to find a garage and ask if your car can be taken there. It's not national recovery in that sense. I recommend QDOS or Green flag. They cost a bit more but service is miles better. Always check the small print. Some don't cover for tyres, misfueling, keys locked etc.

jsac

I've heard many bad reviews about these- if much rather spend an extra 15 and get Green flag or AA

jsac

But good luck claiming if anything happens (I hope it doesn't!) As they are renowned for failing to assist

MisterMadHatter

I had Autoaid last year and broke down for the first time ever. I got straight through to their customer services and I had the recovery truck arrive in about 30 mins. Very impressive. I think they have a large network. The only complaint I have was that the recovery guy didn't even bother taking a look at my car. He just said "what's the address of the garage you want to go to?". I then had to sit through 2 hours of xenophobia and macho crap. It's not Autoaid's fault though. They also massively harassed me when my renewal was up with phonecalls and emails. It got me out of a pickle though and I didn't have to wait too long. Also great communication throughout the experience, even to check I made it to my destination ok. I think I might go back to them as some people's experiences on here are a bit of a concern. StartRescue also have solid reviews. I was them before on a deal but I can't tell you what their service is like

Crashtest

It's cheap but the customer service is awful when you need to use them. I'll never recommend them to anyone

This is what I meant, £16 is a bargain for a single tow off the motorway heaven forbid

jhw

I'd like to see you get a towing service out for £16 :) It should be illegal to call a friend/family member to tow a car off a motorway - these people who do it take their lives in their hands.

mrner01

My mistake, but you're right about the service, I chose them cause of the driver power survey combined with the price.

Make sure to read the small print, also lots of stories about expensive auto renewals.

This doesn’t work. Autoaid will not accept the Groupon code if you have had a previous policy regardless if it has expired and if you put your spouse as the main policy holder. I know this as I have just tried it and failed. I now have to apply for a refund from Groupon.

Link to Vouchercodes says "deal is not available" and the BDAY code does not work. However, GROUPON code does work (expires on 23th?) and makes it £35.20 I decided to went through Quidco as they are currently giving 18% cash back on online purchases and mine is already tracked at £6ish.

There is must be reason give away free breakdown cover, try give them a call first and see how long you have to wait to get someone answer the phone.

HUKD_R

It's only a fake price if they have never tried or actually sold it at £119. You should be careful with your use of the word "fake". Intelligent people think before making such sweeping comments ;)

Why repeat falsehoods? Intelligent people think first ;)

THEY used the words “worth”, but hey let’s not let that get in the way of a good rant....

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.

TonySquared

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 ?

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.

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.

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.

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.

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