AAMI Roadside Assistance Review

An affordable add-on policy, AAMI’s roadside assistance has decent perks but is only available to AAMI customers.

Our verdict

Pros

  • We compared the price of eight add-on roadside assistance policies. At $86 a year, AAMI was cheaper than five other brands.
  • AAMI offers an SMS tracker, so you can see your mechanic live location as they're on their way. (Geographical limitations do apply though).
  • AAMI offers unlimited call-outs, 24/7, 365 days a year.

Cons

  • AAMI's roadside assistance is only available to people who have comprehensive car insurance with AAMI.
  • If AAMI doesn't have any service providers within 100km of your car, you won't be able to use roadside assistance.
  • There's no cover if you've accidentally filled up with incorrect or contaminated fuel.

AAMI offers roadside assistance which can easily compete with other options in the market, across both price and features.

Note: AAMI is an add-on policy. Some other policies are included as part of comprehensive insurance, and some are fully independent from car insurance. Quotes are accurate as of November 2023 but yours will differ based on your driver profile.
