What is AA car breakdown cover?

AA car breakdown cover offers complete peace of mind for every journey. If you break down at any time of the day or night, you’ll get help from a trained mechanic at the roadside.  

With AA breakdown cover, if you run into problems over ¼ mile from your home, an AA mechanic will attempt to fix the issue on the spot. If a roadside repair isn’t possible, the mechanic will get your car to a garage for further investigation. 

Roadside assistance is available to all AA members, and mechanics are available and on call 24/7. So you’ll never have to worry about being left stranded if you break down far from home. 

In addition to roadside assistance, AA breakdown cover holders can choose add-ons for further reassurance. These include cover at home, should your car not start one morning, and money towards any repairs that might be needed in the future. 

Personal coverage is also available through AA. This covers the individual, no matter which vehicle they happen to be driving or travelling in. Alternatively, you can choose to cover a vehicle only. Coverage will then extend to whoever is driving it at the time of the breakdown. 

Some AA breakdown coverage options also include money towards hire car or travel costs if required. Read on to find out more about how AA breakdown cover with hiyacar works. 

How does AA car breakdown cover work?

We have teamed up with the AA to offer our members a discounted business membership which, after our discount, works out cheaper than the AA standard personal policy. And not only that, our members also get all the extra bells and whistles that AA coverage policies are well known for. 

Unlike most breakdown coverage options, this policy covers the car, not just the owner. That means your car is covered for personal use by you, along with any other named driver and anyone who hires your car. 

What is included in AA car breakdown cover?

Roadside Assistance: If you break down over 1/4 mile from the vehicle’s registered address, help’s on its way, 24/7.

At Home (Home Start): You’ll get Roadside Assistance if you break down at or within 1/4 mile of the vehicle’s registered address.
