AA Ireland has invested almost €500,000 in the purchase of new vans to upgrade its existing breakdown assistance fleet from Cork-based company Ford Ireland.
The investment in AA Rescue, which will see a number of custom Transit Vans and Connect vans added to the AA fleet, marks the latest in a series of ventures undertaken by AA Ireland to further improve its service. In 2017, AA Ireland invested a total of €11m in a number of areas across the business, including a significant technology upgrade.

Commenting on the addition of the new vans to the AA Rescue fleet John Farrell, AA Commercial Director stated: “This move will allow us to continue offering a best-in-class service to our AA members and further underscores our commitment to both growing our business and supporting other companies operating across Ireland. The summer period is always a busy one on the roads and no-one wants to experience a breakdown while they’re driving with their family. This timely purchase will ensure that we can respond to our members in an effective manned to minimise any inconvenience their breakdown could cause.”
