Toyota & Lexus to provide free roadside assistance to UK's key workers

Toyota and Lexus are partnering with the AA to provide the UK’s key workers who drive Toyota or Lexus vehicles with free roadside assistance cover, regardless of how old their car or van might be. The move will give peace of mind and support to those people whose work is invaluable in providing essential services during the Covid-19 pandemic.

From today, Toyota and Lexus are extending the full benefits of roadside assistance cover to all key workers who own a Toyota or Lexus. Working in partnership with the AA, they are providing the cover regardless of whether motorists previously had Toyota Roadside Assistance or Lexus Roadside Assistance membership.

The free cover is being introduced as an open-ended benefit, available until further notice, for all Toyota and Lexus vehicles, of any age.

Rob Giles, Toyota (GB) Customer Services Director, said: “We want to help the health and social care workers who are supporting and caring for people in incredibly challenging circumstances, and also those whose excellent work is keeping the country safe and its essential services running. We want to give all those key people who drive our vehicles the peace of mind that help is on hand to keep them on the move if they encounter any problems with their car or van.”

Extended cover for existing and recent Toyota and Lexus Roadside Assistance members

Owners of new or recently purchased Toyota and Lexus models should already benefit from roadside assistance cover. The full benefits of membership are now being extended for an additional three months, at no extra cost. Those whose membership lapsed or was cancelled as of 1 February 2020 will continue to receive guaranteed cover until 31 May 2020, again at no additional cost.
