How it works?

Year 1:

All new Suzuki vehicles will receive the usual 5 year Suzuki roadside assist cover. In addition, you will receive free for 1 year the Suzuki Benefits Programme. This comes with a branded Suzuki Benefits Programme card which gives you access to a range of benefits and discounts.

Years 2-5:

You will have the opportunity after the first year of ownership to renew your Suzuki Benefits Programme at the discounted rate of $40.00 per year for the remaining four years of your new Suzuki warranty. The AA will contact you directly after the first year of ownership with the option to continue with the Programme. If you decide not to take up the offer, the Programme lapses but your Suzuki roadside assist continues.

To Note:

  • The Suzuki Benefits Programme is enjoyed by you as the vehicle owner and is not transferable to new owners if you sell the car. The Suzuki roadside assist programme applies to the vehicle and is transferable to the new owner.
  • If your Suzuki is registered under a company name, the AA will contact you directly to confirm if you would like to be included in the Suzuki Benefits Programme.
  • Rental vehicles are excluded from receiving Suzuki roadside assist or being part of the Suzuki Benefits Programme.

Already an AA Member?

  • If you are an existing AA Member, your Suzuki Benefits Card will be linked to your AA Membership card so you will be able to use either. There are different benefits, so to choose which card will work best for you and your family, call the AA on 0800 734 543 and they will help you decide. What's more, they will set up a 50% discount on your AA Membership renewal for each year your vehicle is in warranty.
