AA Mortgages review
AA Mortgages is a new player in the UK mortgage market. It offers a range of fixed-rate and standard variable-rate products with a noteworthy loyalty bonus.
The AA is most well-known for saving us from being stranded on the road, but it’s slowly gaining a reputation for saving us money on our mortgages too.
AA Mortgages launched in 2016, offering fixed-rate, standard variable-rate and interest-only deals. All products are underwritten by the Bank of Ireland.
An annual loyalty bonus, equating to 0.1% of your mortgage balance, helps to separate AA Mortgages from its competitors. There are also some tempting cashback offers tied to a number of its products.
