AA Roadside Rescue during Covid-19

The AA is continuing to deliver the same essential services you rely on during this extremely difficult time. We want to assure you that we’re here for you and we’ll do everything we can to help you.

Our main priority is the health and safety of our team and our Members. We’ve introduced a number of safety measures, so that we can be here for you, whenever you need us.

Personal Protection Equipment - All our patrols have been provided with additional Personal Protective Equipment supplies. These include face shields, hand sanitiser, protective gloves and sanitising wipes. 

Gloves – Gloves are carefully disposed of after each use.

Sanitising Wipes – Sanitising wipes are used to wipe down your car’s surfaces to minimise the risk of contamination.

Badge - AA Patrols wear a ‘Keep a safe distance’ badge to remind members to stay at least 2 metres away while their vehicle is being attended to.

Questions – Our Rescue Team ask AA Members a few brief questions relating to contact with a confirmed or potential COVID-19 case. With this information, a patrol can advise the member to leave the keys of the vehicle in a safe location, avoiding contact. The keys can then be left at the same location and the patrol can advise the member by phone.

Why choose Roadside Rescue from the AA?

As the largest breakdown assistance company in Ireland, we provide nationwide car breakdown assistance on Irish roads 24/7, 365 days a year. We’re 110 years old this year and we’ve always put people first. That’s why we cover you and not your car. You’re covered in a breakdown, even if you’re not the driver and you don’t own the car.

What’s more, we won’t just tow you to a garage like other companies do. Our AA Patrols are trained mechanics, and they fix 8 out of 10 cars at the roadside.


We fix 80% of breakdowns at the roadside

We have an 80% repair rate at the side of the road. This sets us apart from any other breakdown service. We won’t just tow your car to a garage, we aim to fix it so you can continue your journey.

If you have Rescue Plus and we can’t fix your car by the roadside, we will organise alternative transport, provide a replacement car or arrange overnight accommodation for you, should you need it.
