AA, RAC or Green Flag.

Decided that with winter coming my tranny van could do with some back up. Who. To choose?

AA always been OK, RAC always been utter shite, was a member of Green Flag but never called them out.

As we don't do big mileage anymore I just did a search on moneysupermarket or whatnot and went for the cheapest, up here with the independents its invariably an Egertons recovery vehicle that rocks up whoever you go with.

Well, its all a bit pot luck really.

Was with the RAC since about 93 until a bad experience couple of years ago.

Mrs B had a very slow callout to flat battery (it was a cold day, so no doubt very busy), got the RAC out to start it, was told it would be fine to get her to quickfit - RAC had a stupidly expensive battery but it was well overpriced.

Car conked out at the top of the road, RAC long gone. Wouldn't come back as it was an existing fault (give first visit), only after arguing they agreed if we bought said battery, another several hours later...

So we went stupid cheap. Don't have own vans, sub contract out. God know what it'll be like if we break down in the arse end of nowhere. But used them once in Swindon and someone came out within 20 minutes.

If I was going mainstream again I'd go Greenflag. No experience of them though.

This - and I've used both the travel insurance and breakdown cover with absolutely no complaints.
