We’re working with the AA to offer Marshmallow customers the very best in breakdown coverage. And, while we might be a bit biased, we think it's a perfect partnership.

Here's all you need to know about our breakdown cover, powered by the AA...

What makes the AA a perfect partner?

Aside from the fact we love a bold colour combination (bright pink meets bright yellow, anyone?), we chose to work with the AA because:

  1. They’re the UK’s number 1 breakdown service provider.
    Plus, they’re Which Recommended and have a 4* rating on Trustpilot 💛
  2. They have unlimited callouts meaning they never leave customers stranded on the hard shoulder 🤝
  3. Last year, they helped nearly 3 million people get back on the road, in 45 minutes on average! Impressive work 👏

How much does AA breakdown cover cost?

When you get a quote from us, you'll have the chance to add on AA breakdown cover to your policy. 

There are 3 breakdown plans to choose from: 

  1. Roadside Assistance - £39.99 a year

    You’ll get:
    - UK-wide roadside repair (unless you're within a 1/4 mile of your home)
    - recovery to a local garage
    - unlimited call-outs

  2. National Recovery - £69.99 a year

    This includes everything you get in Roadside Assistance, plus:
    - UK-wide recovery
    - home start

  3. European breakdown cover - £99.99 a year

    Everything you get with National Recovery, plus:
    - European recovery
    - UK wide onward travel after an accident
    - alternative travel, in the UK and Europe

These packages also cover additional drivers who are covered to drive your car, meaning everyone’s protected in the event of a breakdown 🙌


I'm already a Marshmallow customer. Where can I find out about my breakdown cover?

If you’re an existing customer and have breakdown cover included on your policy, your plan will be with the AA or AXA. If you already have a breakdown plan with us, we’ll move you over to AA breakdown cover when you renew your policy.
