Used the code 15APP today and still worked. Been a customer before and was impressed with how quick thy came out when I broke down.
Policy Renewal Reminder This is a reminder that your Vehicle Breakdown policy is due for renewal in 29 days time on 30/01/2019 at 00:00:00. We reward loyalty, providing discounts on our published prices for those who renew! Renew Direct for £31.90 Your renewal premium this year was £35.45 Renew Direct through startrescue.co.uk to claim your 10.00% loyalty discount of £3.55!Your premium from last year was £31.90, this is inclusive of any amendments or upgrades that you paid for during the period of insurance. I have been with them for 4 years, had one call out to a flat battery with great and quick service. I cant fault them so wouldnt go anywhere else. I use to pay £70+ with RAC and no call-outs.
Got cover this time last year for £30.13 which was a bargain, renewal quote is 49.50 for this year so I've taken a policy out elsewhere. I only had to call them out once and response was decent, their breakdown app is very good too. I found the price of cover would depend on your car my older golf was cheaper to cover than my partners newer audi a3
It is worth putting in a complaint. We had a very similar situation. Put in a complaint to Esure (as it was an accidental). Got £150 back from them and £50 from RAC
Might depend on the car, I guess.

Thanks op, just picked up 3* cover for £28.xx (20% topcashback too). Heat!
and where time of day is not mentioned, meaning that the vehicle and passengers could be dumped outside the nearest garage at 1am on the Friday of an Easter weekend and have to twiddle thumbs for four days until the garage opened.
Conjecture, but I read the 2* cover t&c with a different implication, where the meaning is clearer on the purchase page that states "...we will arrange for the vehicle, you and up to 6 passengers to be recovered to a garage for repair, your home or original destination, whichever is nearer..."

Deal was posted 4 months ago . Price was correct back then , as i joined myself. I assume price has changed in that time.
Coming to 55 for a 3 star cover - am I missing something?
Thanks OP. Just purchased the 3 star cover, came to £31.90 with a 10% off code I found online (think it's a referral code so cannot post it here). Hope it's good!
Any idea if this is better than Autoaid? Ideally I would like Personal cover, so it should provide breakdown cover if I'm driving my wife's car.
is that the nationwide account that charges about a tenner a month? I was thinking of signing up to that but maybe not now. You should contact their customer service I've found them to be good at dealing with complaints

If the code works then who are they to argue? Go for it I say! Also, for any nay-sayers, my brother is covered by Start Rescue and his exhaust fell out on the motorway last week. Called them, and was attended after about an hour. No problems, so what more do you want? :)
Renewal discount seems to apply when taking out a new policy, do you reckon they'll give me grief if I proceed with it?
After the RAC damaged my car when securing it to a low loader they demonstrated staggering levels of arrogance, refusing steadfastly to accept any liability whatsoever despite being presented photographic and physical evidence. Not sure you chose the better company there I am afraid.
I've been with them past 3 years and even referred parents, great service and I like the app on the few times they've been needed I've gone with 2gether this year as there is a 50% discount code which meant start couldn't come close on price for an older vehicle Don't discount them though

bought the 3 star policy hope i dont need to use it but if i do its great to hear good reviews on these guys.
Added some more heat.. Just gone with these guys after The AA wanted £165 to renew (which they offered to knock down to £108 when I phoned up to cancel my policy). Fingers crossed I won't need to use them, but I've read some pretty good reviews in the event that I do.
What do you mean by 30 mins ? I can't see anything about time in the policy.

I emailed Startrescue about this taking to a local garage to be ripped off sorry i mean repaired they emailed me back and said if its under 80miles they would usually take you home,Now thats no good to me if i break down anywhere i want the car taken home (son in law is a mechanic mot tester),But most of the rescue services are saying this in the small print now,So i stayed with More Than breakdown been with them about 5 years and they do take you on to destination or home,Full cover including Europe was £67, If it wasn't for the taking to a garage i would have gone for this because if i took the personal cover on top that would cover my Mazda pickup which for some reason not many want to cover.
that was the point I made - I have the kit to plug into my car and check it out - and often fix stuff myself, so why would I go to some random place of their choosing
Very true and same choice applies for me. I'm due for renewal in Feb so got time to shop around or wait for a deal to pop up. I shall give them a ring anyway to confirm that i have understood their policy correctly.
Yes , but as someone mentioned , I would always want to choose which garage to use , that's if I couldn't fix the problem myself . I wouldn't want my vehicle to towed to some very expensive dealership and get robbed .I would want to bring the vehicle back to my home and diagnose any problems then take it from there . I'm sure other recovery firms give you the choice.
Seems bit odd to me. On a mid to long journey, you are almost always going to be closer to a garage than your home or destination.

I had M&S car insurance & had horrendous experience when needed to use the RAC breakdown cover inc with the policy. They claimed I was not covered. Had to call AA in the end. When I got home I sent letter of complaint & proof of breakdown cover. M&S were awful. Never even apologised, said what did I expect anyway, I had no right to complain as it was free - I pointed out it wasn't, as their wording stated it was inc in the policy cost - over £350 of it! RAC were better, at least eventually got an apology off them & a few months free cover but apparently it was M&S's fault all along. They never even sent my details through to RAC for them to set up my breakdown cover in the first place - you have been warned!
am I missing something but unable to find anywhere on start rescue website to put the discount code in?
What happens if you break down at 4am in the morning, are there many 24/7 local recovery garages out there.
