AA Discount

This one’s for those with AA Breakdown cover, but you could apply this to anything.

Up to 25% Discount!

While they don’t advertise a discount for current customers, like many companies, they’ll offer discounts to those giving intention of leaving for a rival company.

My AA payment was defaulted due to a lack of funds and poor money management on my part. When I was informed by my bank that the payment was missed I didn’t realise my AA service had gone up to nearly £19 a month.

I rang them with the view to cancel and look elsewhere. After a short conversation, I was offered a 25% discount on my monthly payments even though I’m already 4 months into my current contract.

So, while it seems the days of bartering may be long gone. It’s still worth asking.

Riding The Western Front: Day 15 – Monday 9th July

Today I got up with a fuzzy head. My brother was also leaving for home at Lascours in the south of France and so he needed an early start for the long drive. We said our goodbyes and I then packed the Lambretta and then said goodbye to my nephew Benoit and his girlfriend Eva. They were to carry on their European tour (which was to end up taking nine months). Now it was time for the ride back. I originally planned further stops in Belgium but I was faced with some personal dilemmas. I made the hard decision to head back to Dunkerque for the boat to England, but not without stopping along the way at Bethune Cemetery to get a photograph of a friends relative who is buried there.
