Battery Trouble

I have recently had Battery trouble with my Laguna. One day it would not start despite having used the car just an hour before. The RAC were excellent and confirmed the battery charge to be 11.5 volts. He checked the alternator which was charging ok then checked for any leakage of power but found none. He suggested a half hour run to put some charge in. Everything has been fine for about 2 weeks when the same thing happened again.
I thought I would make an enquiry about a new one and have had 3 quotations from leading suppliers.
a) 47
b) 74
c) 97
Can anyone tell me which option to take, all have 2 year guarantee. Is the cheapest one worth going for?
