What is Accident Assist?

We'll help you every step of the way after a car accident. If the accident wasn't your fault, our specialist staff can arrange recovery, help organise repairs, vehicle hire or personal injury assistance.

  • We’ll send a fully trained Patrol to recover your vehicle to our nearest approved garage and arrange a temporary replacement.
  • We'll organise repairs at one of our approved garages, with a 3 year guarantee. As well as a hire car if needed.
  • We liaise with insurers on your behalf. Saving you the hassle and possibly multiple calls.
  • We’re on your side – acting on your behalf, independently of the insurer.

    If you're involved in an accident, our expert Accident Assist team will help you with every step. From the moment you call to being back on the road in a fully-repaired car. Our helpline is available for Members 24/7 to give support with any potential claim.

From start to finish the service I received even in these troubled times was superb. I was contacted immediately and efficiently with a sympathetic and friendly attitude.

June 2020

It was a very straightforward process and the person I spoke to was able to answer my questions and send help straight away.

December 2019

When I phoned the AA to help me regarding the accident, everyone that I spoke to on that day were amazing. I can't thank them enough.
