    Which breakdown service?

    My AA policy is up for renewal next month. Home relay etc, joint policy for £166. I reckon that's a tad steep. I use the car occasionally, so work wouldn't be affected. What do you think? RAC, AA, Green Flag?

    Breakdown Cover

    My annual trans-European breakdown cover expires soon, so I thought I'd talk to the RAC (who now do my UK cover). They quoted me £99 per annum, plus another £100 as all the cars I'd be taking abroad are over 11 years old. Then it turns out that are on their list of Affiliated...
