    My car is five years old tomorrow. Happy Birthday car! So the warranty and complimentary breakdown cover expires tomorrow as well. I've always been with the RAC over the years and once with the AA and Green Flag. Never had any problems with these three companies except the cost.

    I am a single mature lady and planning a big road trip to Scotland and back in the summer. I am looking today to take out breakdown cover to cover me for the next year and every eventuality on my trip. Obviously I want to save money but not cut down on the service I receive.

    Which company do you experts recommend for me?

    P.S. My car insurance is due for renewal at the end of March 2018. I could risk six weeks without breakdown cover to take advantage of a better deal coupled with my car insurance but knowing my luck the car will breakdown the moment my cover expires!

    Thank you for posting the link to the forum about car insurance/breakdown cover. It was through the link I came to this forum. I'm tempted to go for Green Flag but there seems to be other companies recommended on here that I have never heard of. So not sure at all.

    Got Ripped off by the RAC, what can I do?
    Hi there, I'd love a bit of advice from someone here, My girlfriend has just been given a car by her grandparents, really nice of them, so she was heading home to see her family and the clutch went, she called the RAC to get immediate breakdown cover, happy to pay at the time, annual price 145 quid, but whatever, she had no real choice, the joke thing that was before she signed up they told her that it would be 1 hour 30 minutes, so she paid and went ahead with it. 7 hours later they turned up, after calling twice to chase after them not showing twice. Called today to complain to be told that its unlikely to get anything back, its not the time its the fact that they lied to get her to sign up. ANY ADVICE WOULD BE REALLY APPRECIATED!
