If you use this policy just once you have got a deal. Bought one few years back. Used it once for recovery locally to my garage. DIY recovery £60. Policy here £24. Both wait one hour. Both would delivery to garage of choice. It won’t come with a mechanic in the boot of your car ready to spring out but it will get you out of a fix just that one time. For £2 a month cool your jets. Most on here waste that on a spontaneous HUKD purchase every day! (y)


I think they want the cheap meal they paid for


Here's my experience of the company from my Google review. Cancelled my policy with them and went for Start Rescue instead. Purchased cover last year and followed through the online process. Rang up when broken down on the hard shoulder of the M5 and was told policy wasn't activated. Ended the call and phoned customer service who activated the policy for me then told me I wouldn't be able to use it for 48 hours as there was a waiting period. If I wanted recovery I could pay £100+ to the operator. Surely they could see on the system I purchased the policy last year and that there had been an error somewhere. Weren't willing to assist me in an emergency. Had to limp car down the hard shoulder to the free recovery section and phone the highways agency who were more than helpful and had a recovery agent sent to me in less than half an hour from me calling. The operative dropped me in a safe place where I was able to fix the car and get it moving again. The least they could do for me is to cancel the policy and refund me the money so I can purchase an actual breakdown policy from a reputable company.


How is AA?


They are useless. They let me down when I needed them the most. Idiots. Stay away.

Thanks. Just renewed for £108 for both too. Was with Autoaid previously. Called them a few weeks back for a jumpstart as battery was flat. Left sidelights on. Waited hour n half. Eventually had enuff n got neighbour to give me a jumpstart. Pick up guy rang me n hour later by which time I was already in work. Vowed never to use them again. Always had good service with AA & RAC, usually come in half hour.


My RAC cover has just run out. I had one bad experience with them and swore that I’d vote with my feet and try the AA. After getting the AA online quote, it was over double the RAC price! So quests what... I’m back with the RAC for all there option cover for £108 for me and the Mrs. Don’t let us down again please...


Just phoned to cancel my renewal which was due on the 27th and got offered 15 months of roadside with recovery for £62.50 (£4.17 per month). I paid £54.98 (£4.58 per month) last year.


Says from £4.50 per month on the AA site?

Cheap, yes but you'd want to spend your money elsewhere. Donate to a charity, not this company. Worst ever experience.


When you make a claim they take 10% off each year the age of your boiler so if your boiler is 10yrs old they won’t pay you a penny, it then gets worse because they “offer” to sell you a new boiler which you pay monthly at an extortionate rate. They should be on Watchdog 😳


Says "Promo code not valid on this recovery plan." so expect to be charged full whack


It may have worked today, but good luck for next 12 month with scammer company


I wouldn't buy this, 24/7 is scammers.

Worth the £12. Coild do with one that covers boilers.


For the benefit of balance - I've had this cover for a number of years and always found Homeserve to be excellent. Good quality plumbers/drainage people, never missed an appointment, always fixed the problem. It obviously depends which area you're in and who the team is, but the ones I've used have been excellent.


Worst company I've ever dealt with. Tried their water cover once, pipe blocked/leaked outside but they refused to dig it up to fix it - I had to do it myself to expose the pipe before they would look at it. And then they never came back to fix it once I'd done it. Also experienced them twice through Home Insurance emergencies that my insurance company uses - the first time they completely f****d up my boiler by inserting the wrong replacement PCB in it (after which they replaced every single part in the boiler to find the fault...I figured it out in the end since the PCB was the wrong colour), second time (2 months ago) they "fixed" a very slightly leaking central heating pipe with a bad compression joint which then proceeded to flood the downstairs when it failed 7 days later because it wasn't tightened. They refused liability. AVOID, AVOID, AVOID. I've also still got a completely renovated boiler with 3 spare PCBs (2 for a system boiler, one - which is the incorrect one - for a Combi boiler) for a Baxi 28kW boiler in my garage if anyone needs any spare parts......


And I don't believe it actually covers the cost of the water any more, eg neighbour had a bill for over £1000 due to underground leak between the meter and the house.


From what I remember, Homeserve always get a hammering on here.

Auto Aid car breakdown cover fully for £48.31 online and new customer only
Posted 24th AprPosted 24th Apr
You'll need to be a new customer or a previous customer who has not had an AutoAid policy for at least six months
Get dealGet deal

'the first 10 miles free and after that you have to pay £1 per mile to be taken elsewhere ' will this only apply on 'basic cover' or apply on 'Premium Cover' too?


I was going to go with Emergency Assist (currently with Auto Aid) but after reading some of the reviews decided against it. A customer claimed that they were charged around £120 to be taken back to their home (which was 130 miles from the breakdown) - I called Emergency Assist and they said that if you break down and don't want to go to the nearest local garage, you only get the first 10 miles free and after that you have to pay £1 per mile to be taken elsewhere - perhaps your own garage or home. I know that with Auto Aid they don't charge you for this (to be taken more than 10 miles to another destination). I broke down at the airport around 87 miles from home and Auto Aid drove me all of the way back to my local garage (the gearbox had packed up). If I had done this with Emergency Assist, I would have had a bill for £77.


Is there any good breakdown cover for rental cars? The car will obviously change for every new rental.


I agree with emmatthew and LesD. I was an AutoAid customer for over 20 years and it was only relatively recently that MSE started publicising them. I got a discount from them for loyalty until they were taken over as per LesD said, and I found I couldn't renew online. So I left August 2018 and went to Emergency Assist who were cheaper at just over £38 for comprehensive cover. Now Right Choice are putting add-on charges and price increases. Keep an eye on their charges! Cold!


That looks like a pretty good deal to me, I'll probably do the same.

Top picture - from the cloud of smoke, I dont think that spare wheel is going to help. Funny story from ~20 years back. RAC bought/leased a new fleet of Vauxhall vans that came with 1 year AA cover - including HomeStart. Being Vauxhall, they werent very reliable, especially in cold weather, so I would regularly see AA vans parked up doing repairs on RAC vans over the winter.


From date of registration.


Interesting, thought its only if the old one gets expired (confused) (confused) (confused) . Anyway thanks didn't know about the old one :D :D Edit: different code. Make sense (y) (y) (y)

terrible company -


Imho this is a stonking deal mainly because of the cashback you can get up to National Recovery level of cover 4 under £40 quid + currently TCB doing 47.5% (of amount I know!!) Cashback. High level of cover for around £20- this deal should be white-hot I reckon!! No idea why it's got so little attention stop trustpilot have good reviews although loads of them seem to be written 2 days ago which is either suspicious always a really bad de to be on the road! Heat from me anyway (popcorn)

Voted cold as the cost of any of the excesses is more than buying a separate policy for any of the perks i.e. AA breakdown has an excess/call out charge of £70

What you see is may not what you get! Here's what i experienced today. Bought this voucher from Groupon, redeemed on 26th Jun 2018, got email replied from RecoverMe, with welcome message and membership summery with member details, as you can see from the screen shoot. You thought yourself in a Breakdown Cover as you expect. Then, i've got our car broken down this afternoon, on side of road 25 miles away from home Friday afternoon. Ring up the number as it says on paper, here's where it start to get difficult. The service provider of RecoverMe(I think it's called Auto Group) don't recognise us on theirs system, not with membership number or any of our details. Can you imagine the saturation that we were, sitting in a broken car with low phone battery. So i ring back again, the answer is NO, sorry we can't help. Hang up the phone. We have tried to ring all the number that we can find on paper and google, including Groupon(0203 8084223) and got hang up as well. The answer from service provider always is: sorry we can't help, try to call Groupon (i presume they dont provide recover service) and we don't have phone number for RecoverMe(How can you dont have phone number for your partner company?), or organise a recovery and pay for it. i was so desperate and anger call back to the RecoverMe service and clearly told them that i have been recording all the phone call(which i did) and ask for names, one of the lady told me: Important message -- the RecoverMe is no longer trading, and they did not pass my details to them. RocoverMe is a trading company only, NOT a service provider. Translate to a simple message which may be?: RecoverMe selling a service more than 1000s according to Groupon page, got paid of it and run away with it. If her message is true as no longer trading. So, if it is true i can smell a huge commercial scam, please message me if you have the same experience. To find out if you are covered or if your details has passed to service provider simply call 0800 022 4411 or 01604 496821 to ask them to validate your membership if is still active(remember to record) At the end, we still got our car broken down and was a difficult journey home. PLEASE KEEP IT UP FOR MORE PEOPLE TO SEE IT.


Just my bit of positive feedback here as i feel they are getting a bit of a bashing, i phoned them for a dead battery a few months back to get a jump start, not the most technical problem, but thought i am paying them so why bother borrowing jump leads off a mate... they arrived within 40 minutes at my home and got me on my way again. Took me 4 rings to get through but overall happy with the service for such an amazing price!

Code not working! :( Ps.: found this code for 20% off your Groupon orders R9MQLCMH Remember to use cashback sites for an extra saving.


Why did they want £150 ?? You could call the RAC and pay £150 for recovery. Must have been an issue over your policy or account surely ?


You were lucky then, my partner needed to use them (paid for the premium cover) when the aux belt went on the car on a bank holiday. They wouldn't send someone out unless we paid £150, once this was paid it took 2 hours for someone to arrive. A lone female with a 1 year old child. Bunch of con artists


Until buying a new motor for the first time ever, I always used AutoAid. Nothing but great service.

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.

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....


Home, breakdown and recovery is NOT worth £119. This is a fake price. You should not use the word "worth". It is the full price without discounts or deals.
