Be wary of the family membership though - it only covers policyholder, spouse and under 21's living at the same address (Must be named and D.O.B given). This is not made clear when the policy is taken out and is to be found hidden in some very small print somewhere in their 'terms, conditions and excuses' section.

It still doesn't stop them sending out membership cards to the younger members after they've turned 21 though, and for some odd reason they act suprised when the now 25 year old gets upset when he's told that his cover isn't valid and hasn't been for several years despite recieving a new card every year.........

From a bitter and twisted now 34 year old who had to walk 5 miles in the pouring rain leaving his wife and 1 year son in the car to buy a new battery and then carry the damn thing 5 miles back again..........

And I thought that Girl Guides were like Boy Scouts....in Being Prepared...
But as to the standards of the "Emegency" services.....driving home 'tother day, a "thud" and a lot of wheel shake. Beggar, says I, we have a puncture....calls the ES [no names, no pack drill] who were ther in 20 mins [which to be fair, on a Friday and on a Motorway, is danm good] So the chap gets under the car [Freelander] and says.."There's the problem, top bush has gone on the steering rack".
"Oh", says I, "are you sure"?
"Yes, the boot cover is split, that's why the steering is shaking.....and making that clicking noise"......
Recovers us to garage, [it's the g/fs car, and it's got breakdown insurance fortunately.....the Transfer box had exploded....No oil, no debris...just a shake of the steering wheel, and a slight clicking noise......
Over a grand for the 'box...and it was covered, thank the Good Lord

Mmmmmmm... Think someone has a downer on the AA.

I spoke to a couple of my neighbours earlier, one works for the AA and the other a Traffic cop and they both stated that if a lone female had called, even if she wasn't a member, they would have attended and she would have been signed up on the spot.

All to do with the murder of the woman on the M50 a few years ago.

Lone females get priority over male counterparts; even if they are not members!

Green Flag, thats the way to go!!
