Default Tesco Clubcard deals and RAC membership

I have searched this but most of the threads are very old...

I used Tesco Clubcard to pay my RAC last year and it worked out fine... but I now can't work out wether its worth it or not...

I got my renewal from RAC which states as I am now a Tesco Clubcard member I will save 40% if I renew directly with RAC... it will be 100.40 instead of 160 for Recovery ,Home and Onward travel... but if I use my Tesco Clubcard vouchers they want 94 in clubcard vouchers for the same package... I'm sure it was much less last year something like 54 in vouchers.

I have nearly 100 in vouchers so its going to use all the vouchers I have and I was going to book some days out for OH and myself for later in the year.. which I won't now be able to do if I use them for the RAC payment..

So am I missing something or isn't going to better to stump up the 100.40 and pay RAC direct and keep my vouchers for our days out?

Help me out someone!!... OH is keeping quiet, so when I do it wrong he can blame me...

personally i would pay for my rac and use the vouchers for days out. seems little point paying almost the same in clubcard vouchers as money. If you use them for days out, restraunts etc, most mean you save at least half (when you take into account that lots of days out and restraunts can be half price with vouchers if you weren't using clubcard vouchers)

I'd ring other breakdown companies for a quote first as there are always introductory offers and I'm sure it would be cheaper than the RAC quote ...I think the package you have now with the RAC is only 42 using your Tesco vouchers, so I'd go elsewhere for 1 year and then back to the RAC next year.

Not according to the Clubcard deals this morning it wasn't its as I quoted 94 I was very surprised as I said because I'm sure it was much less last year.. I prefer to stay with the RAC anyway but thanks for the suggestion...

I looked at Tesco clubcards too today as my renewal letter quotes 162.00, it seems to be very high this year and the Tesco deal is expensive tooo.
I'm going to look at Quidco for a deal.

Sorry if my info was wrong...doh!!! What do you get for 42 on the deals then? I was looking at this for myself as the breakdown we got with our new car expires later this year and I thought it was 42 with deals....

Thats ok there are an awful lot of options available.. the one you chose has no 'HOME' cover and its single cover and I needed joint cover for my husband and myself.. so as long as you only want single cover without HOME feature without Europe cover then its fine..

I had a similar situation with my renewal but when I looked at the Tesco rewards on offer, I went with the RAC Joint home policy at just 41 in vouchers so, I've used my vouchers again. Hope that helps.

I had the same issue with the Tesco RAC renewal & went to Topcashback, AA is 50 back on a spend of over 100. Keeping vouchers for Hols.
