What prices should I expect to just fix a cracked hip tile?

Just that, thanks. Going to ask for quotes now.

    Bungalow or three floor town house ?
    If it is close to the bottom of the roof, you may find someone willing to do it from a ladder for £200. If it is going to need scaffolding, you might get away with £1000.

    That isn't a cracked hip tile - You have a couple of slates missing that need replacing before the weather turns nasty.  You also appear to have a chipped slate (third one along on the right, just above the gutter).
    £266 doesn't sound too bad. Try and get him to use reclaimed or new Welsh or Cumbrian slate, not that cheap Spanish or Brazilian stuff (it only lasts a 5-10 years).

    They look like eternit roof tiles to me, And not fitted correctly from day one.
    if you look close you can see holes in the bottom of each tile, the should be held down with copper rivets.
    while he is replacing the missing tiles get him to put some felt underneath

    No, but several roofers have said so.
