We’ll get you there

Even if your car gives up on the way, we’ll make sure you, your passengers and your vehicle still get to wherever you need to go.

No matter where you are

Breaking down a long way from home can be expensive. But, with National Recovery (also known as Relay), you’re covered nationwide.

When you call us out, we’ll always try to fix your vehicle at the roadside first, or arrange a prompt repair at a local garage. If neither’s possible, our National Recovery feature will help you finish your journey.

  • We’ll take you, your vehicle and up to 7 passengers to wherever you need to be – whether that’s back home, or to the start or end of your journey.
  • Distance is no object – you can choose any single UK mainland destination.
  • We’re on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

Buy today, ready tomorrow – it’s as simple as that. National Recovery activates 24 hours after you buy. If you're new to the AA, you can add it to your cover when you buy online.

To add National Recovery to your existing AA cover, call us now on 0343 316 4444 to get a quote and update your policy.
