Breakdown cover

Unread post by Greenbat » Fri Dec 28, 2012 10:37 pm

Having been with the AA 2 years, they have decided to "upgrade" my cover to silver. This involves "upgrading" the cost by £50. Can anyone recommend another breakdown cover provider?

Carole Nash insurance and breakdown cover work out best for me but not everyone agrees.

Works best for me too. £254 for everything covering all three bikes, I reckon I could pay more for just breakdown doing each one separately.

My R. A. C. breakdown cover doesn't matter which vehicle I'm in / on. It doesn't even have to be mine. So if I'm driving my sister's car & I break down I can still call them out. The price doesn't vary for 1 or 5 vehicles. It is not the same as having normal vehicle insurance which includes breakdown cover (as per Carole Nash).
Hope nobody does break down of course.

That's true & the CN system only allows 4 call outs a year, but who breaksdown more than that? ;)

Yeah, my AA cover was roadside and relay for me driving any bike. My insurers weren't keen on breakdown cover for bikes over 10 years old, cos they're unlikely to have the bits to repair at the roadside. What annoyed me was the cheek of nearly doubling it, trying to make out I should be pleased about it and just deciding to take the money. :evil:

I'd check all these free breakdown policies. My insurers (H&R) only offer it for vehicles under 10 years old.
