Retailer Information


This basic level of cover provides roadside assistance throughout the UK, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year so long as you are over ¼ mile from your home. The AA’s number 1 aim is to fix your car, but if it can’t be fixed it will be towed to the AA’s choice of relevant local repairer or to a local destination of your choice, provided it is no further.

Relay – National Recovery

Recovery to a single destination of your choice within the UK if the AA is unable to fix your car at the roadside or arrange a prompt local repair. You can choose to be taken home, to your destination or anywhere else on the UK mainland, regardless of how far this may be.

Home Start

Every day, the AA deals with over 2,000 vehicles that breakdown at homes in the UK, Channel Islands and Isle of Man^. With Home Start you can call the AA out to within ¼ mile of your home and enjoy the same benefits offered under Roadside.

Stay Mobile

If you break down and the AA can’t arrange a prompt local repair, Stay Mobile gives you other travel options. Choose from reasonable public transport costs, overnight accommodation or a replacement car for up to 72 consecutive hours. Selected suppliers offer a hire-car delivery and collection service, or equivalent, subject to availability and the supplier’s terms and conditions (including payment of the supplier’s fuel charges).
