    I renewed in May without any issues and have used them for years. They have been excellent every time I have had to use them but looking at the reviews of the company that have just taken them over I am not confident that things will run smoothly in future.

    I will be keeping my eye on any recent reviews

    Joint cover for spouses
    I phoned the company to ask if the joint cover meant only legally married couples/civil relationships or if it included common-law relationships/couple living in the same property for a specific period of time, to be told that the latter could not take advantage of the deal as we were not legally married. What a shame that this is the case as may have had my business. I haven't come across any other breakdown service which discriminates in this way.

    Which other breakdown service covers 2 drivers like this for the price of one?

    Isn't it just a "special deal" for married couples?

    I actually find them to be very good value and I'm somewhat baffled how they can afford to keep it so cheap.

    If limiting the deal to single people and married couples and civil partners keeps the cost down lower than including any two people sharing the same address, then so be it.

    I called these out a couple of weeks ago.... warning lights came on with car on the way home - got home okay but decided to call them out ... was a little puzzled as this was a Sunday evening the "limit" 65 for home issues - however the very efficient person who answered phone said that wasn't the case so I went ahead ... I then asked do I pay the call out person and i was told no that's not happening at the moment .... got a text saying what time repair truck would arrive - it did then got a call saying was everything okay - expected some sort of cost somewhere as this is suc a cheap deal but that seemed to be it .... great service
