Operated by the AA, Recovery Services is a cost-effective 'pay as you go' vehicle recovery service

What is FTA Recovery?

Breakdown assistance for your transport is vital in business, but it can represent a significant cost, particularly if your company is running a large number of vehicles including cars, vans or HGVs. If your company does not want to take out insured cover, then pay-for-use Recovery, operated by the AA, could be right for you. Entitlement to Recovery is free for FTA members; you decide which services you are likely to require should any of your vehicles break down, and your company only gets charged if it uses the services. There is no annual fee too, so no breakdowns mean no cost.
