Does anyone have anything good or bad to say? Looking for an alternative to RAC. Is Adrian Flux any good?
https://www.autoaidbreakdown.co.uk/ are similar. My intention is to go back to these or to this GEM (thanks) next time around as £120+ I'm paying with the RAC is too much.I use GEM. Much cheaper than all the others and they cover 2 drivers (me and the missus) driving any car. Which is especially important if you have an older car in your fleet as the AA and RAC won't cover cars over 15 years (I think).
As they don't use their own vehicles they search for the nearest garage/recovery agent to where you break down and send them so waiting times are usually a bit shorter.
Downside is you have to cover the bill yourself and claim back from GEM. However on the 2 occasions I have had to resort to them, both over 20 yrs ago, they repaid before my credit card bill came through
Don't know about the AA but the RAC will cover any age according to their website. This comment sent me checking as I am with the RAC and the Saxo is 16 years old.I use GEM. Much cheaper than all the others and they cover 2 drivers (me and the missus) driving any car.

Q. Can you provide breakdown cover a classic car?
Yes - for UK Breakdown Cover, there is no age limit on the vehicles we cover. Please bear in mind though - if your car is over 10 years old and you would like a vehicle-based breakdown cover, you must choose a higher level of vehicle cover than basic Roadside, such as:
Roadside and Recovery (Onward Travel optional)
Roadside and At Home
Roadside, Recovery and At Home
Roadside, Recovery, At Home and Onward Travel.
There is no car age limit if you are choosing personal-based breakdown cover.
