Does anyone know if there's any difference between (expensive) VW Roadside Assistance and the much cheaper product direct from the RAC. Many of us will now be getting those letters asking us to renew after a free year with a cheapest rate of £89 for annual single payment direct debit. The equivalent cover from RAC is £29.99. Given that its the RAC who come when you call out the VW people I'm wondering if they have a special VW unit operating out of RAC HQ. or are they perhaps just having a laugh?!
