AA Membership

Do you own or use a EV. Then this is a good place to discuss things.

AA Membership

Postby Grumpy-b » Sat Dec 21, 2013 7:41 am

Two years ago I took out AA membership with relay, for my wife and myself, with any vehicle cover. It cost around £98 and was used a couple of times to get our EVs home. When it was time for renewal the cost had gone up around 20+% to about £120. I complained and got it for the previous year cost. This year it had jumped to £169 with a special 25% decrease to £143. I complained that an increase of over 45% was just not accepatble. They offered me the online price of £119. I suggested they go forth and multiply. I then complained via email and got two responses, one suggesting I go away, the other saying they had a retention team who would contact me in due course. They didnt, so I called and complained, and eventually they came back with a £106 annual fee.
So if you are an AA Member and object to the huge price hikes, complain, complain and complain again.
As an EV user I do feel I need such a service as Relay, and it is much cheaper to have cover like this than getting your vehicle recovered. Three years ago it cost me £120 to get my Berlingo electrique recovered and taken 20miles to my home.

have you had a look at the ETA , I've got 3 vehicles covered for around £195 breakdown , recovery, car hire. . They lobby for improved environmental transport policy, if that sort of thing floats your boat :wink: https://www.eta.co.uk/breakdown/car/
Sorry if this seem like a ad , I just like publicising stuff I believe to be a potentially 'better' option than the same old run of the mill unenlightened money making machine.
cheers Jim

Ours covers two people for any car we may have. So not restricted to any particular vehicle.
