Frequently Asked Questions

Each cardholder is entitled to four (4) Roadside Assistance service calls or reimbursements per membership year, provided the calls meet the conditions described in the member guide, for: 

 

  • Towing service
  • Flat tire service
  • Battery jump start & AAA Battery Service
  • Emergency fuel delivery
  • Vehicle lockout and locksmith service
  • Minor mechanical first aid
  • Extrication/winching service

There will be a service charge of $80 for each additional service call after the fourth call or reimbursement. If a cardholder has an unpaid service charge balance and contacts AAA for Roadside Assistance service, AAA may require immediate payment of both the unpaid balance and the charge for the current service call before providing service.

If you’re a Classic member, you can be towed up to 5 miles to any destination, or unlimited miles back to the service provider’s location.

 

If you’re a member with AAA Plus® benefits, you can be towed up to 100 miles to any destination.

 

If you’re a member with AAA Premier® benefits, you can use one of your tows one time per household per membership year for up to 200 miles, and up to 100 driving miles for any remaining service calls.
