Many of my family and friends have used AA over the years and have always been happy with the cover. They are world renowned and have a good reputation. To date I have never had to call them out, but I feel very secure they would provide a good service. All of my family who have called them out have found them to be polite, swift, and able to provide essential repairs very promptly. All in all a very good service. I also like their exclusive offers to customers etc. and regular emails keeping you updated on these items. A good service.

What can you say about breakdown cover. You don't know how good they are until you need them. I haven't, touch wood, needed to call them out yet. They do offer competitions and advice on their website as a member. Oh it is too short, okay, what else? Can't say anything else. They seem okay, bit expensive for what it is but it is an insurance in a way. You hope you don't want to use them.

Its very easy to apply for cover - I searched online for car insurance, and found the AA were most competitive, and gave me free cover for twelve months. I needed to call them out when I couldn't get my car to start, and they were with me in no time at all. I needed a new battery, which they could have supplied, but they gave me the option to ring round first - I thought this was excellent customer service.

Reliable and speedy

I had tried to get my car home with a failing clutch. The AA towed me away from a dangerous location at a busy bus stop and took me to a dealer I was unaware of not far from home. I had left my mobile phone at home so could not arrange a repair by contacting a garage. On another occasion they replaced my battery at a hotel when I arrived back from an airport. You never know when you're going to need help and they're always easy to contact by phone.

Reassuring customer service on phone.

Took a long time to arrive.

This is a good, solid company who are very reliable if you need to call them out. They had excellent contact facilities and now even have an app which keeps you updated if you do have a breakdown. They can easily locate you with this facility as well. My only gripe is the annual payment. They do not offer a good price for loyalty - rather the opposite. Every year means a phone call to get the extortionate price down to something more reasonable. They even offered me a gold membership card for my loyalty a couple of years ago but hiked the annual membership up by a huge amount at the same time. When I have called them out, I have been more than pleased with their speedy service and professionalism.

Very professional company

I have been with AA for 3 years now and am very happy with their service. They automatically renewed me without warning after the first year - I called them to discuss this and they gave me a substantial discount without me even having to ask. Their 20% off at Moto Services almost covers the annual cost as I drive a lot and use this offer a lot. Good value for money and good customer service.

Good 20% discount at service stations.

Auto-renewed my annual subsciption without warning.

I found the AA breakdown service second to none when my car which was only 6 months old conked out on a very dangerous stretch of road. They arrived promptly and took care of everything. Checked the engine, and did all of the electrical tests. However, they could not find the fault and as a result they sent a report to the supplier who had to give me a new car.

I been with the AA for a very long time but on the few occasions I've had to call them out they have been excellant. On one occasion the engineer spent 3 hours working on an electrical problem with the car and did finally solve it, he was determined to got to the bottom of it. They are not the cheapest breakdown provider but they do offer a quite comprehensive service, although there is diffferent levels of cover available. The cover I have even covers me if I'm a passenger in someone else's car that breakdown. They also responded when I had a problem with a hire van.

i was recommended to the AA by my dad and have been thoroughly impressed by the customer service I have encountered and when I have needed to call them out they have been very quick to attend, thorough and fixed the problem instantly. they made note I had my young children in the car and I think prioritized which I found to be a fantastic asset, and the mechanic explained things clearly ensuring i understood and was happy before he left.
