    I thought one of their slogans is "we will go the extra mile". Quite a few extra miles in this instance.

    I think I read somewhere that they station some vans in Europe in hot spot areas in the summer. Where the computer tells them that most breakdowns happen.

    A few years ago we followed an NHS ambulance along the motorway from Beziers in the south of France North towards Claremont F. until we turned off for a rest break. All sign written and a recent registration with two uniformed guys in the front. Not something you see every day :)

    They do base some AA vans in Europe over the summer months. My friend's husband spends 3 months over there. She pops over for her summer hols whilst he is there. His name is Lee if you should ever come across him.

    Must be reassuring if you are stuck in rural France and an AA man turns up to help. Wonder if there competitors do the same.
