Why Join AAA?
See the Many Reasons.

Over the years, we've discovered that people usually join AAA so they can make use of our high-quality travel and automotive services. But what they soon realize is that there are many additional ways that their membership can and will come in handy. Regardless of whether you have standard coverage or AAA Plus, you can feel certain that reliable service and our solid reputation stand behind you.

1. Nationwide Emergency Road Service*

Our 24-hour helping hand throughout the continental United States and Canada rescues millions of members - as drivers or passengers - each year by:
  • Changing flat tires.
  • Jump-starting dead batteries.
  • Unlocking your vehicle:
    AAA Plus Lockout Service includes automotive key and lock service and up to $100 for parts and labor when necessary to make the car operable or to gain entry.
  • Making minor adjustments to start your vehicle or providing towing, if necessary, to the service provider's station or repair facility of your choice. AAA Plus Members receive up to 100 free towing miles.
  • Delivering fuel to stranded members. AAA Plus includes delivery of a sufficient quantity of fuel to enable you to reach an open service station.
  • Extrication - AAA Plus allows two service vehicles and two drivers.

You may call upon Emergency Road Service through the nearest AAA office, or call our own nationwide toll-free service number, 1-800-AAA-HELP. Emergency Road Service is provided to four-wheeled cars or light trucks that a AAA member is driving or riding in.

Assistance is limited by the safe maximum lifting capacity of equipment used by the service provider when lifting is necessary. (Dual-wheeled pickup trucks are covered for towing if the truck that arrives can safely lift them. Dual-wheeled pickups are also covered for other services, except tire service on the dual wheels.)

*For more information and complete details about your coverage and extended options, please review the information in the Automotive section of this Web site.

Inquire about our Plus RV Emergency Road Service option (PLRV) which provides towing/winching, extrication and tire changing for RVs that are heavier than passenger cars or light trucks.

By providing a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone stealing your car, we are helping to provide 24-hour protection against theft of a member's car. Additionally, the $1,000 reward is offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone who causes bodily injury in a hit-and-run accident to a Club member. (Rewards are not payable to law enforcement officers, the member whose car was stolen or immediate family members.) AAA Plus doubles the reward to $2,000.


14. Arrest and Bail Bonds**

The $1,000 Guaranteed Arrest Bond is for use if you are arrested for a covered minor traffic violation. It's just like having $1,000 in your wallet. For more serious covered traffic violations, you are protected with a $5,000 Bail Bond Certificate, which is secured by calling the nearest AAA office. Bail Bonds are insured by General Insurance Company of America. The AAA Bail Bond Certificate is provided on your statement.

We also lend safety films, provide traffic safety lectures and workshops, and pedestrian protection, along with motoring and bicycle safety campaigns.


17. Legislative Programs

AAA Auto Club acts as the voice of its members in the state legislature and through the American Automobile Association which represents you in the U.S. Congress. AAA addresses such issues as the fair distribution of the cost of good roads, fair and impartial law enforcement and fair motoring legislation.
