Customer Reviews

Best App ever!

I've no idea what the negative reviews about this app are all about - it seems you just can't please some people. My car broke down 4 weeks ago and I used this app for assistance. I didn't need to speak to anyone at all, it was perfectly straightforward to use and the AA were able to find my exact location. Not only that, but I was able to track the breakdown vehicle on the app as it made it's way to me. How technology has changed since I joined the AA as a 19 year old back in 1984, and given a key (which is still on my key ring by the way) to use with their roadside boxes. Like I said in the title - the best app ever!!

Read the small print first.....

A nasty application. An excellent concept enabling AA members to contact breakdown service with map location - but why do they insist in the small print that you must enter your mobile phone number and automatically consent to the AA and their third party friends to then use it to send you junk SMS advertising messages with no opt out option? Users need to reject these applications and regain control over their own phones......
Update: the Aug2015 update doesn't warn you first but actually removes fuel and parking info from the app and only reinstates them if you again give them your phone no and email address for their junk mail! This is unacceptable and a great pity the AA don't listen to it's own members concerns....

OK but sign in fails

Easy registration with proper filtering of fields. I get so annoyed when postcode fields allow lowercase and email fields allow uppercase. Anyway got the text for confirming my account and the link leads to a message saying the link worked BUT when I go to track or make an assistance request it says I need to confirm my details in my AA account info (which I just had) and sends me back to where I had just been. Maybe it's my bank membership number as I have AA via my bank but the why isn't that checked when they send the text? Frustrating!!!!'
