Compare Breakdown Cover from AA RAC Green Flag & RescueMyCar

Compare Breakdown Cover

Here we compare breakdown cover from The AA, The RAC, Green Flag and ResceMyCar. With almost everyone getting in to breakdown cover these days it’s hard to know who is the best. Many new companies offering breakdown cover today are actually using the AA, RAC or Green Flag anyway. We say, cut out the middle man and go direct.

The AA and RAC are the biggest and longest running providers of breakdown cover in the UK. However, Green Flag is bringing up the rear. With an impressive track record and a very good reputation, Green Flag are a good option to have. Given the size and wealth of experience across these 3 great breakdown companies, the chances are that if they aren’t offering it, it probably isn’t worth offering.

With breakdown cover starting from as little as £17.90 for a full 12 months membership, there is cover here to suit even the smallest budget.

Compare breakdown cover companies not just on price. Cheap does not necessarily mean the best. Compare breakdown cover companies on response times, number of patrols, areas covered or percentage of cars fixed at the roadside.

It’s well known now that modern cars are more complex than their older counterparts. Looking under the bonnet of car these days and you will likely only see a plastic shroud concealing most of the engine from view. Whereas before we could maybe check the spark plugs or the water pump or fan belt, all of this is now hidden from view and controlled by computers.

Breakdown cover companies now carry diagnostic computers that they can plug in to your car at the roadside and it tells you exactly where the problem lies. It’s just not something the average customer can do these days. So, if you break down, what will you do? How would you get home or on to your final destination?

It’s a simple choice to make for complete convenience if you do break down, not to mention your personal safety and the safety of your passengers. These expert companies always put you first. With average response times around 30 minutes after you’ve  called, you can be sure you won’t be stranded for very long.

It has to be the RAC. Their Roadside, Recovery, Home Start and Onward Travel product at £124.98 per year is £10 per year than The AA but the RAC are offering up to £50 of free fuel with this level of cover. That’s £50 back in your pocket (or in the tank of your car to be precise) making this one of the best offers around. This coupled with a substantial network of Patrols it is a great deal at the moment. Check back soon for special deals on AA, RAC and Green Flag Membership costs.
