Comprehensive Car Insurance Policy Benefits:

  • Agreed value

    Your agreed value is the amount we agree to insure your car for when your policy begins and at each renewal.

    We'll pay you your agreed value if your car can't be repaired or is stolen.

  • Damage to your own car and other people’s property

    If your car is accidentally damaged, or is stolen, we’ll repair it or pay you your agreed value to replace it.

    If your car accidentally damages someone else’s car or property, we’ll pay up to $20 million if you’re legally liable for the costs.

  • Lifetime Repair Guarantee

    When we repair damage to your car, we guarantee the repairs for the life of your car, even if you sell it.

  • Towing, storage and transport

    If you have an accident and your car is not able to be driven, we’ll pay to tow your car to the nearest place of safety, store it there, and get you and your passengers home.

  • Customer Service Centres*

    Exclusive to AA Insurance! A one-stop shop that will help you get back on the road again as quickly as possible.

Frequently asked questions

If you can't find the answer you're looking for, please contact us.

Who is covered to drive my car?

Our car insurance policies have an open driver policy, unless a special term has been applied to your policy. This means that any licenced driver who has your permission to drive your car, will be automatically covered, provided they comply with our policy conditions and any applicable licence conditions. For example, drivers must not have any unacceptable traffic or criminal convictions and must not have had any unacceptable claims or accidents (for example, a driver using the car illegally).

Please see your policy document for more information on all policy conditions that you and your drivers must comply with.

It’s important to note that excesses relating to age and driving experience may apply to you and your drivers. Please see your policy schedule for excesses that may apply and to determine if a special term has been applied to your policy.

Any drivers who will be regularly driving your car should be added to your policy. This is a quick and simple process and ensures you know they are covered should you need to make a claim.

If you have any questions about who is covered to drive your car or if you’d like to add a driver to your policy, please contact us. Alternatively, you can add a driver to your policy using My AA Insurance.

Does my Car Insurance Policy include AA Membership?

AA Membership is not automatically included in your car insurance policy, but can be purchased separately. It will give you dollar discounts off your insurance premiums when you give us your personal AA Membership number each time you take out or renew an eligible policy. If you're interested in more information, please visit our website.

Does my Comprehensive policy cover my children's car seats?

Yes, your children's car seats are covered by the policy.

It will also cover any fitted entertainment, communications and navigation systems, tools and breakdown equipment permanently kept in your vehicle, seat covers, roof racks, first aid kits, torches, fire extinguishers, maps and aftermarket wheels. It is important your agreed value includes any accessories you have added to your vehicle.

 

How do I add a driver to my car policy?


To add a driver to your car policy, first sign in to your My AA Insurance account.

Choose the policy you want to update from your policy list, then select Update your policy from the top left menu. Under Your car you'll see Listed drivers. You'll need to be able to provide their full name, date of birth and answer questions about their driving history.

If you have a classic car, motorhome or motorcycle, policy please contact us so we can add a driver for you.

Can I include Excess-Free Glass Cover on my policy?

You can add Excess-Free Glass Cover to your Comprehensive or Third Party Fire & Theft policies.

Excess-Free Glass Cover is not available on Third Party, Classic Vehicle, Motorcycle, Caravan and Trailer policies. If you choose not to include Excess-Free Glass Cover on your Third Party Fire & Theft policy, damage to your windscreen or window glass is covered only if it’s caused by attempted theft or vandalism and the excess would still apply.

If you choose not to include Excess-Free Glass Cover on your Comprehensive policy, we will still insure your windscreen and window glass, but you will need to pay an excess for any claim you make.

Do you cover my car if I use it for Uber?

We may be able to offer cover if your car is used for Rideshare or Uber but we'll need to discuss this with you first. Please call us on 0800 500 231 so that we can assess your individual situation.
