AA Member Loan customer reviews.
2.1 out of 5 stars
Amazingly quick. Filled form in online. Got the same interest rate I was promised, i.e. 3.2% FIXED OVER 3 YEARS. No strings. Can repay early without penalty. Got accepted within 30 seconds. Credit checks etc all done in that time. Confirmation message. Money into bank within 2 days. Amazing. Recommended.
I called AA loans this morning and after 38 minutes got through to Hayley.. who didn’t even apologise for the wait, which I would expect as standard practice from customer service! Poor service from there on in on the call. Won’t use again.
Our review of AA Member Loan
Although the AA don’t personally pay out the loan amounts (they are a brokerage for Bank of Ireland), their website and information offers the same feeling of security as their breakdown cover. There is lots of information about whether a loan is the right choice for you and they seem to be very conscious of lending responsibly. They clearly set out the criteria of the loan, explain why a customer may receive a certain decision and guide customers through the consequences of taking out a personal loan.
AA Personal Loans have mixed reviews online with some customers claiming to have great credit scores but still getting turned down. There are reports of the AA changing the initial quoted rate of interest after the application has been completed, however, this is to be expected as through gathering personal information they tailor their interest rate to each customer’s individual circumstances. Reviews across the web are quite negative, but with the majority of feedback being from those that have been declined, it’s not surprising.
One thing to note is that if you are an existing customer and wish to borrow more from AA Personal Loans, you will need to settle your existing debt with them and then reapply, which can be an inconvenience if you’re not in the financial position to do so.
Overall verdict: AA Personal Loans seem to take a firm but fair approach. They only accept those with a perfect credit history, so if your credit file has had a couple of wobbles in the past then this is not the loan for you. If you’re a current breakdown customer then AA Loans could be worth considering for convenience, but it’s worth shopping around.

Approved applicants will be sent their paperwork to sign and send back and once this has been received by AA the loan should appear in your bank account within 2 working days.
The advertised representative APR offered by the AA is tailored to your personal circumstances and takes into account your credit information, your requested loan amount and the length of time you wish to borrow for so it may differ from the advertised rate.
