Can I recommend Britannia Rescue for elderly drivers?

Thought you might like this info for future troublesome oldies. I just fixed Roadside Assistance and UK Breakdown Recovery from Britannia Rescue, via my insurers LV. Cost from now to mid-May next year is £56.43. It was a Green Flag TV ad that triggered it all off so, when they turned me down – after Lloyds TSB ended cover as their 80th birthday "treat" – I hadn't bothered for a bit.

That is very helpful. Thank you. Britannia Rescue gets the most accolades from readers for European recovery too.
