    Breakdown cover renewal 10th Oct 17 at 1:41 PM
    My rac breakdown cover is due for renewal so I'm thinking of going with start rescue but do they have their own recovery vehicles or do they only use local recovery firms. I would stick with the rac if the renewal price was cheaper but what I don't like about the rac is they use local recovery firms after a certain time.
