Breakdown cover is essential. Driving in Britain is tough enough these days without having to wonder what would happen if you broke down, got into an accident, or even got a flat tyre on a dangerous motorway. The AA has been protecting Britain’s motorists for over a hundred years, so they know what they’re doing.
As the UK’s no 1 breakdown provider, they attend over 3.5 million breakdowns a year, and complete repairs, on average, in under 30 minutes.
If you travel in Europe, you should get AA European Breakdown cover, with its 24-hour English-speaking helpline 7 days a week, they offer emergency roadside repairs or towing to the nearest garage in over 40 European countries, and alternative transport up to £1200 per trip, per party and emergency accommodation up to £500 per trip, per party. You can also choose vehicle recovery back to the UK or onwards to your destination and much more, including offering European driving advice.
There are no AA Patrols operating in Europe. They arrange help either through local garages, or with the help of the national motoring clubs and affiliate associations overseas.
On top of the Breakdown cover, nowadays, the AA provide Insurance, including competitive Car Insurance, Financial Services and much more.
