AA cars provides car insurance, driving lessons, breakdown cover and road maps. The company also offers home, travel and contents insurance, as well as loans and driving advice. Founded in 1905, the AA has around 14 million members across the UK and Ireland. The AA is best known for its breakdown cover but also offers car insurance, driving lessons, loan products and more. AA insurance is underwritten by a range of insurers and the company operates as a broker rather than as an underwriter itself.
The AA’s Dealer Promise sets out a 10-point charter including a commitment from dealers to offer history checks and a minimum six months MOT. Dealers can also opt to have their vehicles independently inspected by the AA as an extra layer of peace of mind for buyers. AA Approved Dealers are committed to offering top-quality used cars and can be identified by an AA badge. The AA’s entry level 43-point vehicle inspection checks mechanical and safety components, while the AA Platinum Inspection goes further to include a full interior and exterior check and a detailed road test. The AA Platinum Inspection is available at no extra cost on all AA Approved Dealer vehicles. AA cars
