AA Certified Garages Can Now Help With Your Breakdown Repair Cover Claims


There comes a time for many motorists when their vehicles require more than a simple roadside fix from an engineer. For those who need replacement parts to be fitted at a garage, these are unexpected costs that need to be factored in to your everyday budget. That’s why the AA came up with Breakdown Repair Cover, keeping your vehicle’s repair costs to a minimum. For just £35 excess per claim, you can claim for up to £500 worth of repairs made at the roadside or at your nearest AA-certified garage.

The policy covers you for five claims per year. All that’s required is to pay the £35 excess for each claim you make. All our Certified garages and Franchise Dealerships have agreed to assist our Members with their Breakdown Repair Cover. Each time you need to make a claim for repairs with an AA-certified garage, simply call us before the work begins to register the claim. Your claims advisor will let you know of your nearest Certified garage where the works can be undertaken at no additional cost to you. All the costs incurred after this point are handled between us and the Certified garage.

AA Members are increasingly recognising the benefits of having Car Genie fitted to their vehicle. This device connects to the port often located in the footwell of your car and begins to monitor all aspects of your vehicle from day one of installation. Whether it’s fuel efficiency, driving style or expense tracking, this simple piece of technology helps our Members to drive smarter.

Better still, Car Genie also offers technical support in the event your vehicle develops a fault. The technology triggers fault alerts, sent to Members via text messages, emails and phone calls, to try and prevent breakdowns. Should the worst happen, and your car does break down, you can report the breakdown via the Car Genie app, which redirects Members to the AA Breakdown app. Alternatively, you can call directly on 0800 316 4691.

Our AA-certified garages have agreed to help ensure all AA Members who break down are sufficiently looked after. Not only will your nearest Certified garage assist with repair and parts replacements if necessary, they can also help with vehicle recovery, providing it is within reasonable reach of their premises.
