AA to provide access to breakdown cover to 65,000 Uber drivers

AA announces partnership with Uber

The AA has agreed a three-year partnership with Uber to give 65,000 licensed private hire drivers access to its breakdown cover.

The deal will also give the drivers in 40 cities the opportunity to book discounted service, maintenance and repair in more than 1,000 garages through the AA’s SMR Platform.

This follows the AA's acquisition of Prestige and its integration into its AA-approved network.

Simon Breakwell, chief executive officer of the AA, which won the 2019 Fleet News Award for customer service, said: “The AA is putting service and innovation at the heart of what we do.

“This unique cutting-edge partnership combines those two elements.

“Our partnership with Uber goes beyond our core breakdown offering and into whole vehicle cover with a comprehensive service, maintenance and repair package for Uber drivers.

“We are making significant progress on our strategic plan and are building operational momentum across the AA, including our strategic partnership with Admiral as well as the launch of Smart Breakdown in Q4.

“The Uber partnership gives us more momentum.”
