Nationwide FlexPlus account holders to get AA breakdown cover


Nationwide Building Society FlexPlus account holders can take advantage of breakdown cover from the AA on 1 March.

The AA and Nationwide announced plans to offer UK and European breakdown cover, including complimentary 24/7 accident claims service Accident Assist, to FlexPlus account holders last year.

Cover will be provided to any vehicle the account holder is travelling in, as well as any named person driving their vehicle.

FlexPlus account holders will also have access to the AA’s app, where they can report a breakdown and track how quickly help will arrive. Vehicle recovery and replacement will also be provided after no-fault accidents.

The breakdown cover builds on the range of benefits offered as part of the FlexPlus account, with no increase to the monthly fee of £13.

Commenting on the partnership, James Broome, head of current account and credit cards at Nationwide Building Society, said: “We regularly review the additional benefits we offer to ensure we’re meeting our members changings needs and providing great value. One example of this is the protection FlexPlus members will receive through our new partnership with the AA, which will provide Nationwide members access to the AA’s fleet of 2,550 highly trained roadside breakdown specialists.”

Gavin Franks, director of business services at the AA, added: “We are delighted to partner with Nationwide and to serve their FlexPlus members. Our five-star award winning patrols will be ready to help those broken down across the UK and Europe.”

“By providing members access to our app, we can ensure that drivers can see help is on the way and keep them on the road. Our accident assistance will provide additional support to those that need our help in times of trouble and means that we can provide end-to-end services for their members.”
