My suspension spring broke on the front of my car also causing the shock absorber to fail. So I phoned the AA when the incident first occurred and asked if I am fully covered, the response was words to the effect of "yes, most likely you are covered".

The AA then had my car towed to a garage of their choice who informed me they could only source after market parts.
So, I asked my insurance company if they would be happy with that. They clearly expressed they would not be, they also expressed for safety and roadworthy purposes both sides of the suspension should be replaced. The garage confirmed this stance too. So I had to source and pay for the parts to hand to the garage to fit, remember this is the garage the AA has approved and organised my recovery with.

But then the claim starts with the AA, Karl in the claims department in particular, seemed to be belligerent in his view and would not budge from the letter of the AA's policy, i.e only pay for the part that broke. So in my view they would be prepared to have the car repaired to an unsafe condition and not cover the cost of the repair to put the car back on the road safely. Karl seemed to stand by the AA's policy and would not consider otherwise, thus representing the AA. All this despite me having to pay for the parts myself because the garage the AA chose could not source them and the AA initially stating words to the effect of "yes, most likely, you are covered".

In the end I am now over £800 out of pocket, plus what I have been paying for AA 'Maintenance cover' for my wife and myself. No longer, its not worth the aggravation with the AA and I will not allow them to jeopardise the safety of my family or myself. All in all the AA breakdown / maintenance cover takes a typical insurance money first stance and is not all you think it will be to protect you in my view.

That TV advert they run with small child in the car singing…. make your own mind up….. Big wheels keep on turning…. you over

Poor service and no call backs

I have been trying to resolve an issue with the AA for two days. I purchased a new car and asked the AA to arrange cover on the car. I was going from an Astra GTC to a standard Astra Elite so you would think that was easy but no. I was told at first that the agent could not complete the transfer due to systems issues and would call me back. I never received a call and when I called them I was told that the insurer would not be able to insure the new car, no reason as to why other than its not a car they cover so why I wonder was I currently insured by then on the same make of car? I am still awaiting a call back absolutely diabolical service. As I write this I have been on hold for 30 minutes to speak to the com[plaints department.

I recently took out car insurance.
A deposit was taken which is fine.
I called to cancel my policy within the 14 day cooling off period to be advised there would be an outstanding balance to pay.
How can there be a balance to pay when I have already paid a deposit and then cancelled within 14 day's.
I then look at my bank account and a transaction by AA has been taken out of my original payment card.
This was the first time I have used this company and will be the last.
Complete robbery...

I phoned to arrange car insurance, simply because they offer 10% off as i had taken their house insurance { that was REALLY bad too, but i didnt know at the time!] and the man on the phone took a really long time going through all the questions....I am an artist, so every second is a brushstroke not done......when he asked about my work [ I am 73] i said 'painter, and part time art tutor ,as artists tend to describe their work as , eg painting, sculpture, printmaking, etc.....so when the documents arrived yesterday, ,it said that i was a painter/decorator. I was mildly amused, and phoned to correct it. they said that that would be an additional £51 !!!I got that down to £26 or so...BUT, it was their fault, and how on earth could an artist, painting at home,cost them more

It is now almost 4 weeks since we made a claim for a broken lap top screen and still we have no decision as to whether our claim will be honoured. We have had to do a lot of chasing, been promised call backs which never transpire and get pillar to posted between organisation and underwriter. The staff seem very young and not well trained with little authority to make any decisions. Don't be sucked in by the price because if you do have to make a claim then you will probably, like us, be using you had paid a bit more to get a better service. Will definitely not be renewing with them or recommending to worse enemy.

AA Home insurance

Never needed to claim so I can't really comment on that. The policy seems pretty robust. They insist on putting it up by about £100 per year until I ring them and then the price goes down to just over last years price....Why oh why do they get greedy?
