    Still waiting for documents. Starting to lose patience now (and I am noted for being very patient!). Phoned tonight and was told by customer services that they will send them out by Royal Mail Special Delivery and I should get them on Thursday. So here's hoping.

    Actually recieved my documents today after phoning to ask where 1st set were.
    Very happy with price paid and level of cover. (customer service bit poor but lets see what happens when (if) i breakdown!)
    Am i here to save money or spend money......hmmmmm
  • What a corker. I rang up asked them for a quote for everything including European cover and was told £133.33 reduced to £94.66 with discount code. Enquired how much it would be if I had everything except European cover and it came down to £38.66! Cover any car for wife and me, home start, onward travel.

    New user, its nice to see everyone is happy with their breakdown cover.

    I'm an AA man, these comments are based on experience not heresay. When/if you need to call them out, compare the service then, not now. You will find that the likes of AA/RAC are streets ahead when it comes to preffessionalism(sp), skill and customer service.

    Did you know that Norwich Union has just bought the RAC, who is going to be coming out to you? I dont think they know yet either.

    If you would like a quote for AA cover drop me an email with a phone number, time to call and your postcode and i will arrange for someone to contact you. We may not be the cheapest, we are the best.

    Forgive me if I am wrong, but I thought the NU Breakdown cover was provided by RAC.. Might be wrong.

    edit: I've just phones NU and it is indeed RAC that will come to the rescue.

  • When taking out joint cover using companies like Norwich Union who give out a 'custom' quote based on car age and other factors, rather than one fixed rate for all customers, note that the premium is always cheaper if the named policyholder is male rather than female.

    The half price Norwich Union Rescue Offer only applies to customers taking out a car insurance policy with NU.

    Staff that give this away as a standalone discount will be investigated and dealt with.

    Be warned....
