    Had a renewal notification from the RAC today and it has more than doubled in price since last year's "special offer".

    Do you have breakdown cover? Who with?

    We have had our cars with the AA for over 10 years and always get an inflated renewal premium hoping that I will do, as thousands of others do and let it renew automatically.
    Each year about 3 weeks before renewal is due, I go online to the AA and see what it will cost as a new customer. Then ring them up and from the menu choose 'Thinking of leaving the AA' and speak to a human. This year the renewal was £268 spoke to a human and haggled it down to £155 for two of us and relay.

    Do the same with Insurance for both the cars. Always big savings on renewal quotes.

    RAC will always do a deal when faced with competition from Green Flag, try it on.

    Just got our AA membership down from £189 to £70 - also had to haggle with the insurance companies - that's 2 hours of my life spent on the phone that I'll never get back - fed up of them!!

    But where can you earn £64.50 an hour?
    No, sorry, I've made a mistake, You'll have paid at least 20% tax on the premiums you would have paid so you've actually earned at least £77.40 per hour for the two hours you were on that phone. Well done!!!

    Said it before (but never put it to the test): Nationwide FlexPlus current account! Breakdown/rescue cover provided by LV Britannia Rescue throughout Europe for MHs upto 8m/7.5t for £10pm BUT if you keep £2500 in the bank you earn approx £6pm interest (taxable).

    So all of that breakdown cover for £48 pa (£60 if you are a standard rate tax payer) - Gordon

    PS Did I mention that you also get worldwide family travel insurance, worldwide mobile phone cover and an extra 12m warranty on electrical good? (t&c s apply).

    I believe that the small print says something like 21 days or so which is useless for most people, please correct me if I am wrong.

    I cannot see that in my copy.

    Getting older means that I forget things but I'm fairly sure that I had a discussion, last November I think, with one of their staff who assured me that there was no time restriction.

    I used to have a Nationwide account and I am talking about euro cover and I remember reading it, it was one of the reasons why I closed the account.
