Motorbike breakdown cover comes with all the benefits of our standard roadside assistance:
As standard, you won't be covered abroad. But if you'd like to ride your motorbike in Europe, you can buy European breakdown cover.
You won’t need a special policy if you ride a bike - our standard breakdown cover applies to motorcycles, mopeds and scooters too.
But we won’t be able to cover electric pavement vehicles, electric wheelchairs, push bicycles, electric bicycles or any vehicles that aren’t road legal.
If you only ride 1 bike then vehicle cover may suit you
Got a car as well? 1 policy can cover your motorbike and your car if you hold:
You can tailor your level of motorcycle cover with these add-ons:
Cover for 1 vehicle, whoever's driving it.
for monthly cover

The AA uses a fleet of dedicated vehicles – which means we own and manage them, and they are driven by our own patrols. These include breakdown vans, recovery trucks and other specialist vehicles to support a wide range of breakdown situations our members find themselves in. Sometimes we may use garages to reduce wait times, but only when necessary. We’ll always let you know in advance.
We have more highly skilled mobile mechanics than anyone else. And they’re all absolutely lovely. The AA is the largest UK breakdown provider, with over 2,500 patrols compared to around 1,600 patrols for the second-largest provider in the UK.

Our breakdown cover policy documents give you the terms and conditions of the contracts that make up AA Breakdown Membership and AA Breakdown Repair Cover (Parts and Garage Cover).
They are split into two parts:
There are 3 ways to do this – annually by card or direct debit, or monthly by direct debit.
If you pay annually, you’ll pay up front for a fixed 12-month policy and the overall price for a year will be lower than 12 monthly payments. There’s no refund if you cancel after your 14-day cooling-off period though. You can choose how your policy renews when you set up your cover.
If you pay monthly, your account will be debited every month until your policy is cancelled. This gives you the convenience of paying per month, together with the flexibility of being able to cancel your cover at any time. After the 14-day cooling-off period, you'll just need to give us 30 days' notice.
Yes – we use the highest form of encryption available, to make sure your payment is safe.
Our secure-server software scrambles all the details you enter before they’re sent, so that only we can understand them.
We'll write to you well in advance of your renewal, but if you'd like to talk to someone about renewing or changing your cover now, call us on 0343 316 4444.
Lines are open 8am to 6pm, Monday to Friday; 9am to 5pm, Saturday.
If you want to arrange personal cover for someone else, call us on 0330 053 1100. However, if you want to cover a specific vehicle you can buy vehicle cover online.
Yes - If something goes wrong with your bike out on the road, our motorbike breakdown cover can help. Motorbikes are included as standard with our cheap breakdown cover.
Our expert mechanics are fully trained in motorbike repairs. Whether it’s a problem with the drive chain, forks, throttle or something else, we can help to get you going again.
We’ll try to fix your bike on the spot. If it needs more repairs, we’ll take you and your bike to a garage so you won’t be left stranded.
Our breakdown cover includes motorcycles as well as cars, vans, caravans and campervans. You won’t need a special policy for motorcycle breakdown cover.
Both motorbike breakdown cover and car breakdown cover work in exactly the same way.
Plus you can add extras to your policy to cover you at home, to help with onward travel or to recover you to anywhere in the UK.
All of our highly skilled mobile mechanics are fully trained in how to spot common motorcycle problems. And our cutting-edge technology helps us get vehicles going again at the roadside.
There are 2 types of motorcycle breakdown cover to choose from:
If you need help deciding on your level of cover, take a look at our tips to compare breakdown cover.
Our standard Breakdown Cover doesn’t include parts but you can add Parts and Garage Cover to your policy.
You're covered for 5 claims per policy year (6 claims if you cover more than 1 vehicle on a joint or family policy).
Each time, you can claim up to £535 worth of repairs (including a £35 excess) – just give us a call before any garage work is started.
You’ll be covered for common vehicle parts like engine and brakes, as well as specific motorcycle parts like the drive chain, sprockets and forks.
Yes - if we can’t fix your motorbike at the roadside, we’ll recover you, your bike and any passengers to the nearest garage.
Or if you have National Recovery, we’ll take you, your bike and any passengers to a single UK mainland destination of your choice.
Most of our vans can carry motorcycles, so you won’t usually have to wait for a recovery truck.
If you have personal cover (including joint and family cover), you’re automatically covered for any vehicle you travel in. That means your motorbike will be included if you have existing personal cover.
If you have vehicle cover, you’ll only be able to cover 1 vehicle. So if your motorbike wasn’t the original vehicle you covered, you won’t be able to add it to a vehicle cover policy.
For Parts and Garage Cover, you can cover up to 4 vehicles on a single policy, as long as they're all registered at the same address.
Motorcycle insurance usually doesn’t include breakdown cover, so it’s best to check with your provider.
If you don’t have cover included with your insurance but you want to receive help from a mechanic if your bike breaks down, you’ll need to take out a separate breakdown cover policy.
Our Members with Breakdown Cover can save 5% on their motorcycle insurance.
Breakdown Cover will only cover you in the UK. But we do have an arrangement with AA Ireland. This means you’ll get an equivalent level of service if you break down there (apart from Parts and Garage Cover, which won't apply).
If you’re driving in Europe, or want extra cover travelling in the Republic of Ireland, you might want European Breakdown Cover. It can give you alternative travel and accommodation costs, legal protection and more.
If you use your motorcycle for business, for example as a bike courier, then Business Breakdown Cover might be the best option for you.
