At AAH we monitor the cost of fuel on a regular basis. After a period of good pump prices we have seen prices edging ever up over recent weeks. The average price for diesel has since passed the 120p per litre threshold, which means AAH will be applying a minimum Fuel Surcharge for October. If your months spend with AAH is under £10,000, a fuel surcharge of £10 will therefore be applied to October’s AAH Account Statement.

Details of our charge structure can be found below.

We have all seen fuel prices rising rapidly in recent months

With the cost of diesel hitting its highest levels since December 2014, reaching an average of 122p per litre this January.


On average pump prices are now over 20% more expensive than this time last year. With analysts predicting further increases throughout 2017 it is no longer sustainable for AAH to maintain a suspension of the fuel surcharge.


From 1st April 2017 AAH will be re-introducing the fuel surcharge
at a rate of £10 per month.

What you need to know

Fuel Surcharge Table

Charges made by AAH are as a direct result of the large increase in the pump price of diesel. We will continue to monitor prices at the pump making future adjustments in line with changes to the cost of fuel. Using data provided by AA Fuel Price Reports we will be adjusting the surcharge up or down monthly in accordance with the table below:

Re-introducing a fuel surcharge is not a decision we have taken lightly, not least because of the impact pharmacies face as a result of funding cuts.
