Might want to give these guys a look. Had a couple of policies and reasonably priced.

I wouldn't touch the RAC with a disinfected barge pole. The AA are ok if budget's no barrier but there's plenty more out there that are more cost effective. Do the comparison check thing but watch out for the 'maximum vehicle age' clause. I'm with Auto Aid.

I will have a nose. Luckily my bike isn't that old to be fair 2018. Though I'll keep looking fingers crossed it isn't something that will be needed. Thanks all.

I'm RAC.

Have needed them half a dozen times over the years. Not had any problems.
Think they have attended in 20mins to an hour. Recovery truck was a bit longer.

Needed them on ride-out once.
Radiator got holed by a stone crossing Winkleigh airfield. (probably Riks fault) ;-)

And its free with our Tescos club points. Got the whole family on it with all the options.
