Unauthorised transactions

The AA will take money from your bank account with or without DD instruction, if you have to sever ties with them make sure you order a new card as they will still bill you regardless. totally illegal and underhand. Report to FOS if this happens to you.

Very Good response time

I once broke down to a battery in my car breaking , AA were quick to get out to me (less than 30 mins) and were very helpful and replaced my battery for me, I Only had to pay for the battery. And they gave me nearly a month to pay for it or I could pay for it in chunks. I loved my time with AA. I'm no longer with them now as my new car insurance doesn't have a deal with them.

Rip Off

In the last year 2 people have bumped into my car, and admitted liability. The last one was just before lockdown and so the repairs haven't been completed. Because this case is still open my insurance has increased by £250 - even though the other side has admitted liability and I've got protected no claims. Tried escalating and was told no. The claims handling was a mess because my husband was driving and even though I gave him the authority to deal with the claim AA kept calling me to complete the details - very dificult when I wasn't there. Even after he's given them all the details they still kept pestering us because they didn't have any record. A shambles. In my latest dealings I mentioned in passing the accident from last year and they had no record of it, even though again it went through insurance, and I had a courtesy car for 3 weeks. Because of this they then upped the insurance again. Absolute rip off merchants

Driver took advantage of vulerable woman and kids to upsell

AA driver attended a breakdown of my wife's electric car on a cold January day. The Wife, two kids aged 7 and 4 and elderly mother-in-law were in the car. The AA engineer turned up (late) then said he didn't know how to fix or move a broken-down electric car. He went on to tell my wife that she HAD to buy an overpriced Relay upgrade otherwise she would be stuck by the roadside indefinitely. He then gave her the office number and a reference to quote when ordering the upgrade (presumably so he got his commission) and left her there.

My wife did not like being bullied like this, but the children were cold and hungry so she relented. I re-assured her that we would likely be able to reclaim the costs via a complaint. The relay call was attended by a different engineer who got the car moving within 60 seconds of arriving (the problem was just a discharged 12V battery) and was baffled at why the earlier engineer did not know how to fix it. According to him, ALL AA engineers are trained on starting electric vehicles.

It seems that some of them are also trained on taking advantage of the vulnerable to earn commission on membership upgrades.

When I raised a complaint to the head office, the driver's conduct was justified on account of "small print" in the membership contract, doubling down on his reprehensible behaviour. The message this sent to me is that this engineer was not a one off, but rather mistreatment of Customers for financial gain is systemic at the AA - to the point where they actually write in special contract terms to enable and protect it.

I urge anyone considering breakdown cover to avoid the AA like the plague and go with one of the many, many other options out there. Their well-known brand is not an assurance of quality but a screen they hide behind to exploit their Customers. AVOID AVOID AVOID!!!

Awful in every way - dishonest & uncaring

The AA told me lies when they thought I would sign up - once they realised I was a member (and i didnt know I was still a member because they had previously told me I wasnt - so I had to struggle with a non starting car prior to this) they soon changed their tune.
If you want a lot of stress, to be on hold a lot, & to pay money for nothing, join the AA.

Can’t be trusted!!
Can’t be trusted!!
My wife’s car broke down after dark on a busy country road in heavy rain. The AA refused to attend because she was lucky enough to stop on a garage forecourt which was much safer than the roadside. The AA said that they will not recover from a garage forecourt, even though the garage was closing. She was told by the AA that she should have stopped at the side of the road or in (an even darker) side turning. Fortunately a family member was able to rescue her. This was important as she was on her way home from Addenbrooke’s hospital. I will never use the AA again- they cannot be trusted!
