Protection from mechanical and electrical faults

Even the most reliable cars can experience faults so protect your investment with our mechanical breakdown insurance. We offer up to 3 years optional cover against electrical and mechanical failure, including the cost of repairs and replacement of parts. This is administered by AA Warranty, and we’ll recommend approved repair centres near you.  

What’s so great about this cover?

  • It’s available for 12, 24 or 36 months
  • there are no mileage restrictions once the cover has started
  • you can make as many claims as you like up to the retail value of the vehicle
  • no matter where you need help, your claims will be managed for you through a nationwide network of repairers
  • if you choose to sell your car you can transfer the cover to a new private owner
  • no claim will be rejected on the grounds of wear and tear (where the vehicle has covered less than 60,000 miles and is under 5 years old at the time of the claim)
  • claims can be settled directly with the nominated repairer.

The single claim limit and period of Insurance will be detailed in the schedule issued when you buy the policy. Mechanical Breakdown insurance prices will vary depending on your car mileage. For more details on what the cover includes, your eligibility, and terms and conditions, download the brochure.

AA Warranty is provided by AA Mechanical Insurance Services Limited, an appointed representative of Motorway Direct Plc which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.
