AA tows the line

NAIROBI, Kenya, Dec 17 – The Automobile Association of Kenya has launched free towing services for its members.

The Association’s Director General David Njoroge said the new service was a response to the high motoring costs and need to offer members incentives.

‘’The Association has decided to offer free towing services to members in response to high motoring costs precipitated by the global economic melt down and will no doubt go a long way in easing the motoring pressure to members’’ said Mr Njoroge.

He added that AA Kenya was able to offer the free service because it had the resources and capacity to adopt international best practices despite the harsh operating environment.

The AA also operates driving schools which are respected across the region.

The AA membership which now stands at 60,000 members and has a branch network with a countrywide representation including Northern Kenya.

AA offers a 24-hour road rescue service as well as the \’Carnet de Passage en Douane\’ an international customs document for temporary admission of motor vehicles in foreign countries. The carnet is valid for 12 months from the date of issue and allows crossing into up to 25 borders.

“The document eliminates the hassle of lodging your original logbook at the point of entry and some times the requirement to the leave a cash deposit with customs officials” said Mr Njoroge.
 
AA also offers valuation and insurance brokerage services through The AA Insurance Brokers (AAIB) Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the AA of Kenya.
