Toyota is partnering with the AA to provide the UK’s key workers who drive Toyota vehicles with free roadside assistance cover, regardless of how old their car or van might be. The move will give peace of mind and support to those people whose work is invaluable in providing essential services during the Covid-19 pandemic. Cover is regardless of whether motorists previously had Toyota Roadside Assistance.

The free cover is being introduced as an open-ended benefit, available until further notice, for all Toyota vehicles, of any age.

Extended cover for existing and recent Toyota Roadside Assistance members

Owners of new or recently purchased Toyota models should already benefit from roadside assistance cover. The full benefits of membership are now being extended for an additional three months, at no extra cost. Those whose membership lapsed or was cancelled as of 1 February 2020 will continue to receive guaranteed cover until 31 May 2020, again at no additional cost.

The cover package in summary

For Toyota owners, the benefits include: –

  • Roadside assistance throughout the UK
  • Cover 24 hours a day, 365 days a year
  • Vehicle recovery to any UK destination or recommended Toyota Centre
  • A free replacement car for up to 48 hours
  • Assistance for breakdowns at home
  • Roadside assistance in 48 European countries

How to obtain assistance

If assistance is required, the vehicle driver should call the Toyota Roadside Assistance Team.
