I have broken down on several occasions and as a woman on her own in a car I have been reassured by the staff members' prompt replies, courtesy, timely arrival and the safety advice given. On each occasion mechanics have ensured my safe arrival home and any follow-up advice needed. I am much impressed and would not change to any other service.
We have joint breakdown cover where the person is insured and not the car so whatever car you happen to be driving, even if it does not belong to you, is covered should you need it. We have got the top range cover and got it at a very reasonable price. They do special offers at times. You also get money off various items including motorway service cafes.
I have the service that will tow you even from another country - never thought I would need it, but this year the car broke down on the way home from Lake Garda, and still in Italy.
The breakdown service was superb, and since the part needed to repair my car wasn't available on a Saturday evening, I was put up in an hotel for two nights at no further cost!
On the Monday morning the car was fixed, and we were able to continue our journey home.
I bought this cover through Eurotunnel and it was much cheaper than going direct to the AA, which I had already checked, even though I already had cover with them with my bank account. Luckily I have not actually needed to use the cover but it does give peace of mind to know that it is there when travelling, particularly as my car is more than 10 years old. It is also good value to take an annual policy as I do travel in Europe more than once a year. Also better not to take up the annual renewal offer from the AA, as that was more expensive than a new policy.
This is one of those things you hope you never need to find out if it is any good,
I have some hope that because its the AA that they are reliable in the event of my needing them.
I have used the RAC in the past with the breakdown provided with the vehicle and this is the case this time so we will see.
I am struggling to find anything else to say so time will tell if its a goodcover policy.
Yes it is based on the type of account you have so make a list of your needs and match your account accordingly. Having European breakdown has been reassuring anf given me confidence to drive further distances knowing that from my experience of hsving break du voveru I have felt safrr. Penny got penny its a priceless piece of insurance. The service is very efficient and the customer care feels sincere.
Bought this but only because i argued and drove down original price to well below half, great product but massively overpriced, and I didn't even have to use it, at the price i got it for it was well worthwhile having for peace of mind but never pay anything near the full price
The must still make money even if we had had to use them!!!!!!!!
