What is multi-car breakdown cover?

Personal cover is our name for multi-car cover. It applies to any vehicle you travel in as a driver or a passenger. That way, you can be covered in multiple vehicles.

It could be a good option if you want breakdown cover for 2 or more cars. It also applies to other vehicles like vans or motorbikes.

You can tell us the names of anyone you’d like to include in your cover. But you won’t need to give us vehicle details as you’ll be covered in any vehicle.


Cover for you

Covers you as a driver or passenger in any vehicle. It may suit you if:

  • You sometimes drive different cars.
  • Your household has more than 1 car.

Other people won't be covered if they drive the car without you. But you can add other people to your policy with joint or family cover.

Personal breakdown cover

Family cover

Family cover for you and up to 3 other people you live with, as drivers or passengers in any vehicle.

You can add people to your personal cover as long as you all live at the same address. You can even add students who are temporarily living away from home.

Good to know
1 More mobile mechanics

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 almost 3,000 patrols compared to around 1,800 patrols for the second largest provider in the UK.

Source: The AA staff list January 2019 (the actual figure is 2,974). The website of the second largest provider stated that they had ‘around 1800 patrols’ on their website in February 2019.

Paying for your cover
How can I pay?

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. Your policy will automatically renew each year unless it's cancelled.

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.

We only offer continuous payment options online. However, if you want to make a one-off payment for a year of cover, call us on 0800 085 2721.


Is my online payment secure?

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.


Can I change my level of cover after I've bought it?

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.


Can I buy breakdown cover for someone else?

If you want to arrange personal cover for someone else, call us on 0800 085 2721. However, if you want to cover a specific vehicle you can buy vehicle cover online.

How do I get multi-car breakdown cover?

We offer different types of personal-based policies which cover you in multiple vehicles. Just choose the option you feel suits you best when you come to buy.

You can tell us the names of anyone you’d like to include in your cover, but you won’t need to give us vehicle details as you’ll be covered in any vehicle.

Are multi-car cover and family cover the same?

If you’d like to be covered in multiple vehicles, then our policies offering personal cover might suit you. We don't call it multi-car cover, but you'll be covered as a driver or passenger in any vehicle.

If you only want cover for yourself in multiple vehicles, then you can choose cover for you. If you’d like to cover more than 1 person in multiple vehicles, then you might want to choose family breakdown cover.

With family cover, you can add up to 3 other people to your personal cover, as long as everyone lives at the same address. That could include your:

  • Partner
  • Family members
  • Housemates
  • Children - even if they're students temporarily living away from home
Can multiple cars have Parts and Garage Cover?

If you have personal, joint or family cover along with Parts and Garage Cover, you can add up to 4 cars onto 1 policy.

Just let us know which vehicles you want to include.

Am I covered in Europe?
Our policies only cover you if you break down in the UK. If you'd like to be covered abroad, you'll need to get European breakdown cover.
