Thank you AA. We've signed our daughter up. Fighting the fight with the Critical Care Team. Nice to know you'll look after her on work trips. Thank you from a worried but also proud Dad.

What do I do if my vehicle breaks down?

First of all, make sure you’re in a safe place. Move your vehicle off the road if possible, or pull up onto the hard shoulder if you’re on the motorway.

Stay well away from moving traffic – it’s usually safest to get out of your car (using the doors facing away from passing traffic) and wait behind a barrier.

Put your hazard warning lights on and wear a reflective jacket, if you have one.

Once you’re safe, give us a call on 0800 88 77 66. We’ll come and rescue you, even if you’re not a Member.

If you’re already with us, you can also report a breakdown and pinpoint your location using our app. It's the fastest way to ask us for help and track our arrival.

Are there any restrictions on the vehicles you can assist with?

We’ll assist with anything, as long as it's less than 3.5 tonnes (3,500kg) and no wider than 8ft 3in (2.55m). This is to make sure our vehicles and equipment can recover your vehicle, if necessary.

It doesn’t matter how old it is or what mileage is on the clock.

Can I get free assistance in the Republic of Ireland?

No, as we can only cover the UK.

I'm a Blue Badge holder – how can I get more information? 

If you need information in large print, audio or Braille, just ask – you can email our customer services team at [email protected]

If you’ve broken down, you can text us on:

07860 027 999

To use the Next Generation Texting Service (NGTS – formerly known as Text Relay), just add 18001 at the start of any of our numbers.
