Just got my AA renewal notice. Member for 26 years. Gold Membership includes wife & most other things.
Last year 388. Renewal 507.

I should hope it includes the kitchen sink too for that price! What's her cooking like? ;)

I use Mayday ie Green Flag via the Caravan Club. All singing, all dancing cover costs me 130 per year which gives personal cover for me & SWMBO ie in any car we're in as driver or passenger and also covers any fault on my caravan which a lot of recovery services don't.

A few years back I used the "double-journey" aspect of Green Flag's Mayday cover when I had a holiday booked in Cornwall but suffered a core plug failure on my Carlton. They took me to the holiday site and I got the core plug dealt with, then after a few days, I had overheating problems. so at the end of my holiday they recovered me home: they counted it as one task. Pretty good, I thought.  :y :y 8)

If you really want to stay with AA and get new member discount would it not be possible to swerve round any issues by cancelling yours and getting swmbo to join and cover you? I've been with the AA since 1984[roadside and recovery]with it being through my bank account for a good number of years now.On the few occasions I've called them out they've been excellent.

I've been with the RAC for as long as I've had breakdown cover - probably 15 years at least. On the few occasions any of my family have called them out they have been very good. On the last occasion, the alternator on the Omega died on the A50 whilst I was towing a trailer, and the RAC attended promptly with another battery to get me off the dual carriageway, but then left the recovery to Mansfield Recovery (who were poor) who attended on behalf of the RAC. Dispite me telling them, and no doubt the roadside RAC man would have done, that I had a trailer on the back, a young lad turned up who wasn't qualified to tow, so I had to wait for another recovery truck to arrive. Mansfield then took ages to return, and told lie after lie about initially being on their way, then about being stuck in traffic, then needing to get a different vehicle - a bit like taxi firms who say "Five minutes, mate" which turns out to be 30minutes if you're lucky. The driver that did turn up in the end was ok. When asked where the traffic problems were, he replied," Dunno mate - only just started".
But, the RAC have been good, although not all of their sub-contractors have been quite as efficient.

Thanks all.
I have had good service from the AA over the years so will probably stay with them if I can extract a bit more discount.
