AA Membership cost and special offers.

How much does AA membership cost?

AA MembershipAA Membership is synonymous with quality service and cover, but how much money can you really save by joining the AA?

There are many advantages to having breakdown cover from The AA. Convenience, peace of mind and the personal safety of you and your passengers are high on the list. What about cost? What might it cost you NOT having breakdown cover?

If you break down on the motorway network, the Authorities have to make it a priority to ensure that your vehicle is not a danger to other road users. In addition, they have to ensure the road networks remain open with traffic flowing freely. Disruption on the motorways from breakdowns and accidents is estimated to cost the UK economy over £750m per year!!!

What happens if I don’t have breakdown cover?

If you have not made suitable personal arrangements to get your own vehicle recovered the the authorities will arrange it for you. However, you have to pay for it and it isn’t cheap. The recovery costs, whilst expensive, are generally fair and reasonable. Even these reasonable costs as a one off will cost you far more than 12 months membership of the AA.

The average cost of recovery from the motorway is between £150 and £200 minimum. This cost is just to get you off the motorway to a place of safety. You still have to get home and you still have to get your car repaired. All additional cost.

With AA membership, you can choose various levels of cover. You can choose to be recovered to your home or on to your intended destination. The more options you add the more the AA membership cost you, but even the highest level of cover works out cheaper than having to pay the one off costs for private recovery if you don’t have your own breakdown cover.
