Excellent

Low cost, reliable, friendly

Haven't found any yet

I’m terrible with cars. There I’ve said it but I am. Every imaginable breakdown that can occur has occurred with me. I’ve had flat tyres, flat batteries, clutches going on me, you name it, I’ve suffered. It doesn’t help that I feel so venerable. I suppose there’s an assumption that just because...

will they live up to their claims

For years and years I have been with the RAC for my car breakdown cover. We were paying £65+ each year just to cover us for breaking down away from home. All this cover entitled us to was for somebody to come out and attempt to fix our car by the side of the roadside. If they failed to do this...

Cheaper, Subcontracts work so often quicker

None

I have noticed that, to date, there has been only one opinion written about Autonational Rescue.......but I can't understand why! This vehicle recovery organisation certainly knocks spots off both the AA and RAC! I have been with A.R. for 2 years and have no complaints in the time that I have...

Autonational are a lot cheaper than the RAC or AA. The comprehensive package with Autonational costs just over £50 whilst the same package with the RAC costs £115. That is a big differnce and a big incentive to go to Autonational. The RAC try to persuade buyers that they are alot better as the...

Cost effective, reliable breakdown cover

None

I have been a member of this rather less well known breakdown organisation for almost five years now. I had been a member of both the AA and RAC before, and although I had found the service they offered very good, their cover is very expensive. After having recieved a flyer in the post from...

Can't praise them highly enough. Had a breakdown and they were there in 15 minutes despite the rush hour. Who can beat that. Problem (electrical) fixed at the side of the road.... in a shopping centre car park actually. One year later, had another breakdown and they were equally efficient, this...

“Full cover for £54”

published 23/10/2000

Very low cost

None

I have been a member of Autonational Breakdown for several years and find them excellent value for money. If you have not called them out during the past 12 months, then you get a 'no claims' discount, which in effect means you pay only £54. For this you get road side assisstance, recovery to...

I have recently had cause to use Autonational Rescue. I had a blow-out on the A10. The tyre spanner gave out and I had to call them out. 5 minutes later, the Police arrived and informed me that I would have to be towed (for a charge of £105). I recalled Autonational, and had a short conversation...

“Foolish not To”

published 06/03/2001

Good as any and cheaper too

none

Why pay over the odds for breakdown cover. I was a member of the AA for more than 18 years in that time I called upon their services perhaps ten times, but for all the loyalty the AA does not seem to reward. I came across Autonational a couple of years ago, and as of yet I have been fortunate not...

I have had 10 years of service with Autonational, have been lucky to only have had to call out twice, both times very quick and great service (they contract out to local garage/rescue companies and they have been very good, fast, polite, in fact the wife called them out the once and she thinks...

I finished a long and grueling day at work, jumped in my car only to find out i had a flat battery, I had previously been with the AA, and they give a good quality service however this can be at the expense of speed. Now being with Auto national rescue i gave them a call, i understand that they...

Poor customer service

Fortunately, I never had to rely on the breakdown service, but if it was anything like the customer service, I'm glad. The cost of cover was reasonable. I spoke to the same lady on several occasions, and she was curt, rude, and because she had such little patience decided to hang up on me after...

The whole set up

I joined and a week or so after they took my money they e-mailed me to say that the package I had signed up for was not available to me and offered me another package. This one of course was much worse, than the original one that I had already paid for. After about 4 weeks and many e-mails sent...
