Can AAA unlock my house?

AAA does not provide locksmith services; however, AAA Premier Members are covered for up to $150 in locksmith reimbursement expenses to help unlock your home or vehicle.*

*AAA Premier Members are also entitled to Home Lockout Service, which is available only for the residence on file for the primary AAA Premier Member and applies only to locks that provide access into and out of that residence. AAA does not reimburse for Home Lockout Service to change locks for any reason other than lost keys, including domestic disputes and security concerns.
