How does AAA Roadside Assistance work?
If your vehicle breaks down or you run out of gas, you can contact AAA Roadside Assistance for help 24 hours a day, seven days a week in any car—whether you're the passenger or the driver, anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. To get roadside service, you’ll need your AAA Membership card and a photo ID.
As a AAA Member, your benefits include up to four service visits per Membership year, including:
- Towing to the nearest gas station, AAA Approved Auto Repair shop, or your preferred mechanic. Miles of towing vary, based on your AAA Membership plan.
- Flat tire service if your tire needs to be inflated or changed.
- Emergency fuel delivery to get you to the nearest gas station.*
- Car battery service, if you need a jump-start or on-the-spot battery replacement.**
- Mechanical first aid to get your vehicle running (minor repairs, not including parts or supplies).

How many times a year can you use AAA?
AAA Membership provides each Member up to an aggregate of four (4) total Emergency Road Services per Membership year.
To find out how many service calls you’ve used during your current Membership year, please call AAA Member Services at 800-922-8228 Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Pacific Time.
Can I use AAA Roadside without my Membership card?
Yes. You can either provide your physical AAA card to take advantage of AAA Member benefits, or use the AAA Mobile app for quick, easy access to your Membership card.
Can I call AAA if I am not a Member?
If your car breaks down or runs out of gas and you don’t have a AAA Membership, you can still call 800-AAA-HELP (800-222-4357) to sign up for a AAA Membership and service right away. While it usually takes 48 hours for Membership benefits to kick in, you can pay an additional $75 to waive the waiting period for immediate roadside service.
Can I use AAA Roadside Service immediately?
AAA Emergency Roadside Service benefits are available 48 hours after you first purchase your Membership. However, you can pay a $75 fee to waive the waiting period and get help right away. If your vehicle requires towing right away, towing is limited to five miles. After the first five miles, a per-mile fee (that varies by location) will apply.
Can someone else use my AAA towing?
Only AAA Members are entitled to towing service. If you’re a passenger in a friend or family member’s car and the vehicle needs a tow, however, you’re entitled to tow service for that incident.
