    Hi
    Not been around for ages as we have been holidaying around the Red Sea. Next year hoping to either go back to Orlando or try the East Coast.

    I read on the boards about AA discounts for hotels etc and our RAC has just come for renewal, would taking out AA cover be a better idea, are the discounts worth it? We are going to be needing flights, car hire, hotels etc etc.

    Many thanks, I`m sure there will be lots more questions over the next few days.

    I took out AA membership last year, just to have incase I saw any AAA discounts, after 3 trips since getting it still not used it. Hotels I have found cheaper thru a UK agent or Disney.co.uk for Disney hotel.
    Why no just do AA anyway or would you prefer to be with RAC?
    I just took basic breakdown cover, looked now its £28 but you get £19(£40 on higher policies) back fom Quidco so actually only costs £9 for the year.

    If you prefer RAC just wait & buy the AA cover at £9 if you need it, buy RAC now, remember cashback with them also http://www.quidco.com/rac/

    Everyone should register with a cashback site, personally I use Rpoints.com but for anyone new to cashback they can be a bit complicated, Quidco is more user friendly.
    Every little item I buy goes thru Rpoints, even if its a £1.99 purchase on Ebay I get 4p back. Or bigger items like Car insurance I got £45 cashback.
    Been registered for 4 years, just got another £108 back from them yesterday which now makes my total £1,555.77 & still another £29.36 waiting to clear. It really is free money.

    When we booked Disney hotel direct, a discount was made from the price when I said I was AAA member. (not sure what %) I was asked for my membership number at the time of booking, but was never asked for proof when I checked in at the hotel.
