The AA has signed a new partnership contract to provide roadside assistance to Lex Autolease’s fleet of more than 300,000 vehicles.

The three-year deal includes roadside assistance, recovery, incident management and European breakdown cover.

The new partnership accounts for around 20% of the vehicles covered in our BC50 listing of the UK’s largest fleet and leasing companies, and around 10% of the UK’s fleet parc, the AA claimed.

“Lex Autolease is the market leader in fleet management and is a fleet funding specialist, offering vehicle leasing for fleets of all sizes, and it is our job to help keep it that way,” said Bob Mackenzie, AA executive chairman.

“We have invested and continue to invest heavily in our business to provide state of the art dedicated operational support in the UK,” he added.
