The Automobile Association operates a roadside recovery service, which is probably the most recognised aspect of its business. However, it has expanded into financial products over time, in both the banking and insurance sectors.
The AA became a public company in 2014 when it was floated on the stock market. It is part of the FTSE 250.
For insurance products, the AA operates as a broker. It passes car insurance customers on to a number of different insurance underwriters.
In life insurance, the AA only partners with Legal & General as its underwriter. And its travel insurance is underwritten by Cigna Europe Insurance Company.
The AA tends to get average scores for both happiness and trust across the board for its insurance products. However, a solid performance at the ombudsman ensures it achieves a Silver Fairer Finance Ribbon for travel insurance.
