This was posted earlier today. Have a look at the reviews on trustpiolt. They are mixed. But for the price can't complain


Rating is not very impressive. also can't see detailed reviews. is it just me?

Used to work that way but it's all paid by them now - now payment required from customer.


Confused with AUTOAID regarding their Personal Cover policy. Do you have to pay for the recovery and then claim back the costs from them as the policy is insurance based, it mentions something about keeping receipts for costs when recovery arrive ?


Ohh I see, yep, for the groupon offer but for £48.31 they give full cover in any car of any age, think thats good value. Groupon deal is different but at £48.31 its far cheaper than RAC / AA equivelant.


It's for people like me who drive old cars and don't bother servicing them I just pay for RAC works out way cheaper - mostly get VW's so I don't call them very often ;)


They are a joke and a complete waste of time, they lie, take nearly 5 hours to come to you after saying we will be there 45 mins 3 times. When you have kids thats a problem!! and then if you brake down again they want you to pay stupid money to pick you up a 2nd time as they think its the same issue (check small print) funny how they dont know or check what the issue is though. I would never use them again, just for telling us they would be about 45 mins and then after 4 phone calls to check where they were it was finally 5 hours!!!! I was not stuck in the middle of know where but in Nottingham, and there pickup truck did not leave his depot near Birmingham until 4 hours after we called :( I would def never use them again!!!

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


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


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


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


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.

Auto Aid are great. Used them twice this past year and can't fault them. They even took six of us to the destination when it's supposed to be up to five (y)


Unlikely, Groupon codes tend to be valid for a limited time. This in the fine print would suggest the expiry date after purchase to me: "Expires 30 Sep 2018." However, you may be able to activate now with a cover start date in January, on the redemption page you can set cover start date, I seem to be able to select any date for years to come (it let me select beyond the year 3000 so there may be a check when you click submit that limits it). Having said that, a Groupon deal for AutoAid seems to have been running pretty much non-stop for the past few years so I think closer to the time the offer will likely still be on. Regarding the need for a new email address others have mentioned, if you have a Google email, the normal trick works there. So if your Google email was, you could just sign up to Groupon with the email and it will work and come to your mailbox.


The code just worked for me..(using new email).

My car is 9 years old. 10 years in February 2019. Will this cover my vehicle?


better of going via Quidco because 22% cashback available.


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.


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.


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

Best thing would be to give them a ring rather than trawling through policy schedules or terms and conditions.


Will this also cover flat tire or puncture repair on road side ?


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)

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.

I beg to differ This transaction was when I redeemed the Groupon voucher code.


They aren't on quidco.


They cover you, not the reg of the car. So what ever car you are driving in when it breaks down, you're covered.


Just a heads up: I used Quidco when I redeemed my code on the Auto Aid website and it's just been confirmed! Got £5.20 back!


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.

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?


Thanks for posting that link. I haven't missed a bargain after all.

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.


Hi there, I’m sorry to learn of any issues you faced during your experience.We should be making this as easy as possible and doing all we can to rectify your service issues.We would like to take a further look into your concerns, please email and we can discuss this further.

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?

Love these Dacia posts as reading the banter make me chuckle at times the yeas and nays do get excitable at times


To be fair this car is a tasty little motor moves well and gives good feedback through the wheel, not to mention it turns heads where ever you take it, my sex life has really took a turn for the better after buying this car, probably because I have more money left over for hookers.


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. Obviously this car is going to lose out on all points but price so why compare it, the more you pay the more you get It is cheeky of the OP to regurgitate the same deal but what the hell.

GROUPON DEAL - Premium breakdown in home start - £24 for 1 years cover
Found 4th FebFound 4th Feb
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
