    Roadside recovery

    Currently im with the RAC I have never had to call them out but I have them there on the safe side.

    But my renewal is due and im just looking round for other companys so just want to know what companys people on here use.

    only ones I know of is RAC, AA and gren flag but the RAC are the cheapest for me.

    So who do you use/recommend?

    Im with AA.

    Ive got me and my dad covered on any car, either as a driver or a passenger. They will try to fix the vehicle on the road or get me home from anywhere in the UK. I didnt opt for the home start though.

    It also covers my bikes so thats what made me go for it, and its only 9.99 a month.

    Your bank or car insurance might offer a better deal, well worth checking.

    I'm with the Green Flag but it was on offer. £7 a month for national cover, which includes silly woman syndrome.......putting diesel in instead of petrol.....locking keys in etc.

    I've got AA Roadside Relay.

    The mother, father, the g/f & me are all on it, which spreads the cost. Think we pay like £35/year

    Had it a few years & only ever used it once.

    Broke down in Scotland, 170 miles from home pretty much. Guy tried to get my little Citroen AX going but he was fighting a losing battle.

    Got it going and diagnosed the problem, but he didn't trust that the little car would cope with the hills & journey so he decided to tow me all the way home, getting here at about 1am & he had a 3hour journey back.

    That to me is good service!!

    I'm with RAC. My stepdad pays for the cover for me and my sister from his Tesco Clubcard points. I've called them out once (for a friends car) and they were really good
