Can I use the road assist benefits while driving a different car?2018-04-17T08:20:12+02:00

No. Your membership is linked to the car you register with e-CAR Club on activation. Your road assist benefits are linked directly to the license and registration you provided us. This information is given to AA’s recovery team, our road assist partners. When you call in for assistance you will be asked to verify that the car you driving is indeed the one you registered with us. Only then will a recovery team be dispatched to assist you.
