Spemd a day with an AA patrol

Spend a day with an AA Patrol

Exclusive money-can’t-buy experience

Sorry, this competition is now closed.

You’ve seen our iconic yellow and black vans traversing the motorway, but have you ever wondered what it would be like to spend a day on call as an AA Patrol? Now’s your chance.

We’re offering one member the exciting opportunity to accompany an AA Patrol in his or her region. This will enable you to spend the day out and about on the road as your patrol attends breakdowns and recoveries.

Our patrols work within a 62-mile radius of their homes and complete repairs in under 30 minutes on average, so you’ll be sure to experience a busy and varied day as your host moves from one breakdown to the next.

With over 3.5 million breakdowns attended a year by the AA – that’s around 10,000 every day – the job is demanding yet rewarding and your host is certain to have plenty of interesting, amusing and moving stories to tell.

Enter now for your chance to become part of the AA for a day.

The closing date for entries is 5 August 2012. Terms and conditions apply.
