“Brilliant Service”

Written on:

I broke down on my motorbike today. I've been a customer of autoaid for a couple of years now but never had to call them until today. During the call with autoaid I was initially a little concerned as the lady on the phone was clearly reading from a script designed for car breakdowns asking questions like is the vehicle a diesel is it a manual, how many passengers, ( bare in mind I'm riding a sports bike) Anyway needless to say I didn't need to be concerned, the recovery vehicle arrived in… Read Full Review

“Poor customer service”

Written on: by Brendan466 (1 review written)

AutoAid Myself and my husband used AutoAid for the past few years. The first claim I made, was when I had a flat tyre at work (my husband was away at the time) and the second was a dead battery just outside my house (we did not have jumper leads or jump starter at the time). On both occasions, the local recovery teams were prompt and courteous. The only downside was having to wait for a while for AutoAid to reimburse me for both callouts. However, in July 2015 we went on holidays to Lake… Read Full Review

“First experience with AutoAid.”

Written on: by AlexJames1 (1 review written)

Having been a member of AutoAid for some years on the recommendation of Money Savings Expert, I unfortunately had cause to use their services for the first time earlier this month having broken down in a public car park. The service was excellent. The person I contacted was polite and efficient and I was informed of the arrangements and had this confirmed by text. Lantern arrived within 30 minutes and although the mechanic could not rectify the problem, he towed me to the garage of my choice… Read Full Review

“Fantastic, would always recommend.”

Written on: by KyleighDuckworth (1 review written)

Have been a member for over 10 years and realise I have used Autoaid 4 times. Fantastic every time. Call out response has always been quick. Locked key in car in Yorkshire and response was within minutes. We have had a flat tyre and a couple of breakdowns, all in different areas if the country. Response has been great each time. Just pay the breakdown guy, cash or card, send off the receipt to Autoaid and within the week you get a cheque back for the full payment made. Great for people… Read Full Review

“Excellent service”

Written on: by Silvafr40 (1 review written)

I had brake failure on a 6 berth motorhome, so as I didn't have any of Autoaid's details I found their number from a search by my phone and from there Autoaid were excellent. They found my details, organised the flatbed truck so all I had to do was pay the driver then claim it back. I could of course have organised my own tow, but as I was unfamiliar with the area they were happy to organise everything. The refund payment was very quick. Considering the price versus other breakdown… Read Full Review

“Broken down & kept being given different ETA's”

Written on: by LoganOliver (1 review written)

Hi Car wouldn't start @ home, was told will take between 60 - 90 mins. Waited 90 mins no one came, nothing at all. Called Auto aid & they said the company (RS Recovery's) vehicle had broken down on its way to me. It would take another 90 mins. RS Recovery claimed they had called me to let me know. A bunch of liars!!! No calls, no voicemail, nothing. I told Autoaid if they could send a different garage they said yes but wait time would be the same. I said I preferred that then to waiting for… Read Full Review

“Great service from for the price!”

Written on: by nrMcCabe230 (1 review written)

We have used and claimed 4 times in the last 4 years. All our experiences have been good including being paid promptly within 2 weeks of sending a claim off. Our biggest tow was 250 miles home with a trailer. Positives: Its cheap and they get you home. You get a lot of services for your money and it covers the person not the car. Negatives: You have to pay for the recovery and then claim back. Its a recovery service, they don't try that hard to get you back on the road (although non of our… Read Full Review

“Admitted cheque was not in the post”

Written on: by ZanderHarding115 (1 review written)

I realised after renewing with Autoaid that I no longer needed their services so phoned immediately to cancel, well before the renewal date. They insist they can not refund payment to a credit card. They claimed to have sent a cheque but subsequently admitted they hadn't done so. They now claim to have sent a second cheque but are still asking for bank details. The cheque still hasn't arrived. I have asked for details of their complaints policy which involves complaining to Lloyds. These… Read Full Review

“Help when needed.”

Written on: by Nancyanderek (1 review written)

We broke down on a Sunday evening in Wales - nothing open! Rang Autoaid, and found a very calm and helpful person, who found out where we were. A breakdown truck arrived in 40 minutes, who took our car to our nearest garage (where it was seen to next day), and took us and our dog home. Car was delivered next morning. Payment arrived from Autoaid within a week or so of claiming. Would probably have waited by the road for ages from the bigger motor organisations. To be honest, the actual… Read Full Review

“Needs improved customer service”

Written on: by Josue199 (1 review written)

I've been using AutoAid for 3 years now, but have only had to claim in the last month or so. My first breakdown was 200 miles from home on motorway services. The phone call to AutoAid took about 10 mins to get through and the recovery truck took over 2 hours to arrive. After that it was plain sailing. I posted my docs off to AutoAid and received my cheque about 2 weeks later. Unfortunately I had cause to use AutoAid again when my car wouldn't start from home. This time the truck was here… Read Full Review

Written on: by Jonesyn94 (1 review written)

Had blow out on outside lane of north west section of M25. Once the location was clarified by the call centre, the breakdown arrived in 15 mins and did an excellent job. glad not to have stayed there long. Liked the speed of response, quickness of action and courtesy. Disliked - nothing. … Read Full Review

“Towing Service”

Written on: by DorianWarner (1 review written)

Been with auto aid 5 years. Had to call out 4 times. Use local garages to send out a tow van always. Never attempt to rectify on road side. Yes, it is cheap and they do reimburse quickly but go for it only if you need a towing service. In the longer run, RAC, AA might be cheaper as they fix most things on road side… Read Full Review

“Not bad for the price”

Written on:

Have had call to use them three times now. The local recovery operators used were all very friendly and helpful. First time - flat tyre on the motorway, came within about 45 minutes and were helpful and efficient. The second time I called them, I was in Derbyshire and it was 10pm on a friday evening, in good summer weather. It took them over an hour to find anyone willing to come out 'because they didn't want to venture out into the peak district'. The location was about 8 miles from… Read Full Review

“Excellent value and service”

Written on:

I was becoming a little bit fed up with paying through the nose for the AA, so decided last year to try Auto Aid. Purchasing cover was straightforward. My husband's car (Mazda Bongo) broke down collecting our child from school. Phone call to Autoaid was swiftly acted upon and transport arrived in 40 minutes. My husband mentioned that the Bongo was a 4wd - this was acknowledged and they sent a flat bed. The guy asked my husband where he wanted to go and took him straight to our local garage -… Read Full Review

“Highly recommended”

Written on: by AmelieO'Neil383 (1 review written)

I've been with Autoaid for about 4 years now and would have no hesitation recommending them. I was initially a little concerned about having to pay by card upfront for any breakdown costs and thought that claiming back these cots could be problematic. However on the couple of occasions I've had to use the service I've found the call centre excellent and the claim back process simple. Excellent value for money!… Read Full Review

“Avoid at all cost”

Written on: by rmChurchill430 (1 review written)

Having been a member for 5 years I had to call for assistance the first time a couple of months ago for a flat battery one morning. The response time was about an hour, and getting the car started was very quick. The problems started with the claim (£50). To date I have not received my reimbursement and have yet to encounter anyone in the Autoaid claims department who has any mannners. Their response is so dreadful that I am amazed they have any customers left. I hold little hope of… Read Full Review
