GM re-tender success for AA

THE Automobile Association has successfully re-tendered for the £10 million contract to supply accident and breakdown recovery to General Motors vehicles in the UK. The AA beat off competition from the RAC, Green Flag and Mondial Assistance to win the five-year contract which covers about 500,000 Vauxhall and Saab vehicles.

The majority of those will be Vauxhall cars and vans through its one-year standard Assist cover and those on extended two- and three-year packages. About 50,000 Saab vehicles will be covered under its Assistance scheme, which includes European cover. It is the first time an organisation has successfully re-tendered for the recovery contract and is the largest contract the AA has with any manufacturer in the UK.

The AA, which also supplies recovery services to Honda, Peugeot, Skoda and SEAT, won the GM contract from the RAC in 1994.
