Here for a flat, here for a chat

When you've broken down, all you want is to get going again quickly and to know that it hasn't ruined your day. So, before doing anything else, our patrols make sure you're okay.

Whether it's reassuring you about your car or getting you out of the cold and into the warm, every breakdown starts with you.

Once we know you're safe and comfortable, we'll fix your car as quickly as possible - usually at the roadside within 30 minutes of arriving. That's why 19,000 happy drivers have rated us 5*.


We'll get you going again

Our patrols are well-equipped to fix the majority of breakdowns there and then, so you can get going again quicker. Last year, each of our mechanics went to over 1,200 call-outs up and down the country.

Flat tyre? Our vans carry an innovative 'muti-fit' spare wheel, which fits up to 90% of cars. So even if you don't have a spare - or you have a double puncture - we can get you rolling.

Our mechanics carry spare batteries in their vans, so we can usually replace yours quickly if a recharge won't fix it. If we don't have the right battery with us, we'll nip to the nearest supplier to pick one up and fit it for you.

Even if you need a tow, most of our vans have specialist towing equipment on board, so you don't have to wait for a truck.


A wealth of experience under each belt

Whatever your car trouble, we can handle it. After all, our mechanics have 28 millennia of experience between them.

Our mechanics get extensive training at a purpose-built AA facility. They're all fully qualified, and our battery technicians have specialist training before they head into the field.

What our Members say

Fast excellent service

“After reporting a problem with our alternator the AA man was here within 20mins. The local suppliers had shut for the day however he went on a round trip to another town to pick up a new part then fitted it for less money than me buying it myself. Very PROFESSIONAL and excellent service.”
