Our product

A vehicle is a lifeline for most of us, and without our vehicles, we would be stranded.

But vehicles are machines which sometimes experience mechanical breakdowns. As your vehicle gets older and increases its kilometres, its parts may break, increasing the chances of an unexpected failure.

Having your vehicle suddenly break down is not only stressful because you’re without transport, but it can also be expensive to repair, especially if you haven’t budgeted for this unexpected repair cost.

In older vehicles, a manufacturer’s warranty may have expired, due to the age of the vehicle or its kilometres travelled, and the costs to repair the vehicle must be fully paid for by the owner.

The AA Warranties mechanical breakdown insurance plan addresses this issue and provides peace of mind to owners in the event of a breakdown.

Unique benefits
