AAA Roadside Assistance: More Than a Tow Truck

The benefits of belonging to AAA extend well beyond roadside assistance. Here are just four of them.

1. Luggage Protection

If you're a Plus or Premier Member and your luggage gets lost, damaged, or stolen while you're on a driving trip, AAA will take some of the sting out of that loss by reimbursing you for it—up to $250 for Plus Members, $500 for Premier.

2. Key Replacement

Lost your car keys? AAA will reimburse you for a new set—up to $50 for Classic, $100 for Plus, and $150 for Premier Memberships. (Premier Members receive the same benefit for house keys.)

3. Hertz Bonus Points

AAA Members qualify for bonus points when they enroll in Hertz's Gold Plus Rewards program. Classic and Plus Members get 675 activation points after their first Gold rental, Premier Members get 1,100. Accumulated points can be redeemed for free rentals.

4. Auto Repair Hotline

Car repair can be nerve-racking. Is the work necessary? Are you paying too much? AAA offers Premier Members a hotline for advice on repairs, second opinions on estimates, and referrals to AAA Approved Auto Repair facilities.
