AA Breakdown Cover Reviews

AA breakdown cover.

by kirkhu, 18 hours ago
consistent service
Recommended by kirkhu

Have been with this company for some years & have had several breakdowns while towing a boat/ AA have always turned up promptly, usually before their estimate & have always been courteous & efficient.
We did have a small dispute last year when we used a relay service & were sent an enormous bill, but this was easily sorted by a single explanatory letter.

AA breakdown cover

by Ash, 1 day ago
garage cover
nil

I have had to use the AA on a number of occasions, the first for an engine management problem. I had taken out garage cover which covered the cost of the diagnosis, parts and repair, it only cost me £35. the second time was when I had a glow plug problem, again the AA picked up the bill with only a £35 contribution. the agreement is for a rolling month that can be stopped when I want. I have family cover 3 cars and 4 drivers. it has been worth the high cost. Do not use Halfords auto centres as they were not very good mechanics.

My 4th emergency cover

by praful, 1 day ago
knowledge knowing what is wrong
can not think of one
Recommended by praful

I advise quite a lot of my friends and family to join and we have my son, daughter and my brother joined after my giving them updates on the service I have received.
When in need of help they have come to my car very quickly and finished the job quickly for us to continue our journey. I can not remember when they took more then half an hour wait that good they are. Their mechanics very knowledgeable and for that reason they know what is wrong with your car. Quick and satisfactory service with a smile.

DS Breakdown cover

by EBADESP53, 1 day ago
Customer Service and response time good.
Cost is too high

Although the customer service is good and the range of products extensive, I believe the cost is too high and therefore the value for money is debateable. You need to decide exactly what you need and find the cheapest/best available. Do not take additional services which are not required and can soon increase the direct debit.

AA after hours breakdown

by krazy4, 1 day ago
Recommended by krazy4

When we broke down, we were on the hard shoulder of the M25, The AA came out just under an hour, the guy was friendly and knowledgeable, we were soon being towed home. We had the choice to go to a garage or home, we opted for home, it was out of hours. We finally got home about 3am. We offered the AA guy a coffee, but he declined and went on his way.

AA Breakdown - Good service

by dusseldorfer, 2 days ago
Recommended by dusseldorfer

Good communication: easy to arrange service. Given timings of when to expect a van to arrive. Prompt, good, friendly service. Always a great help. Have used on a couple of occasions and have not had reason to complain. Once when car kept cutting out; another when battery was flat; another when it wouldn't start in snow. Have never heard any bad reports.

Exceptional EVERY time

by Narry, 2 days ago
Friendly
Recommended by Narry

There's a fair few times I've had to use my breakdown cover over the years and each time the AA have been STUPENDOUS. No matter what the problem was that day they've been quick, efficient and friendly. From a flat battery after carelessly leaving my lights on overnight to a cracked radiator leaving me stranded on an A road in rush hour which led to me getting towed, they've not laughed at me. They're professional at all times. Just excellent

Home assistance

Prompt and efficient service
Recommended by polear

Taking my car out of the garage one morning to go to work I realised I had a flat tyre. I called the AA and was told someone would be with me in about 2 hours. The mechanic arrived in about 30 minutes and my tyre was changed and the car ready to go in a further 15 minutes. I would recommend the AA given how quickly they arrived even though I had told them I was at home.
