Nationwide FlexPlus members benefit from AA partnership

Nationwide Building Society’s highly-rated1 FlexPlus account is moving to the AA for its breakdown cover from 1 March 2022.  

This latest partnership between Nationwide and the UK’s largest breakdown provider means FlexPlus account holders will have UK and European breakdown service including Accident Assist cover – a complimentary 24/7 accident claims service. Cover will be provided to any vehicle the member is travelling in, as well as any named person driving the account holder’s vehicle. This cover builds on the comprehensive benefits offered as part of the FlexPlus account with no increase to the monthly fee of £13. 

FlexPlus account holders will also have access to the AA’s app, where they can instantly report a breakdown and track how quickly help will arrive. 

If members are involved in an accident that wasn’t their fault, they will be able to access vehicle recovery and arrange a replacement vehicle, which the AA will manage on their behalf2.  

As well as offering UK and European breakdown cover, the FlexPlus current account also provides: 

  • Worldwide family travel insurance  
  • Worldwide family mobile phone insurance  
  • Commission free usage abroad when withdrawing cash or making payments  

Opening a FlexPlus account is simple and can be easily done online. If you decide to switch3 your current account to a FlexPlus account from another provider you could be eligible for £100, or £125 if you’re already a Nationwide member. 

James Broome, Head of Current Account & Credit Cards at Nationwide Building Society, said: “Our FlexPlus account provides members excellent value for money and benefits for the whole family, such as worldwide family travel insurance and worldwide family mobile phone insurance. 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, said: “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.”
