AA - Upgraded to silver membership - but at a cost in General Motoring Issues Posted August 7, 2017 We had the same with my fathers membership a few years ago. He is in his eighties and doesn't go far. When i rang the AA to see what was their best real price they explained that 17 year olds in the house (which was 0) were covered by it and also my father would be covered while driving abroad. I can't remember the last time he saw the by-pass so abroad is also a non runner. I explained he never wanted silver membership and if that was their best price we're off and the price came down £20. Loyalty to companies doesn't pay nowadays.
