Can you use Triple A same day?
AAA Basic Membership benefits are available immediately to members upon joining. Plus and Premier service is effective 7 days after enrollment or upgrade payment is received.
How to Cancel Your AAA Membership
AAA makes it fairly easy to cancel your membership, but you can’t cancel online. Call the Member Service Center at (800) 222-6424 to speak with one of their customer service representatives.
You may also be able to visit your local AAA club and cancel in person.
They will advise you on whether you’re due a full or partial refund based on how much time is left before your renewal.
Does Costco offer AAA discount?
It’s usually good for about a 10% discount on a refundable rate, similar to the Costco discount. The difference is that while anyone can use the Costco discount (just enter “COSTCO” in the promo code box), getting a AAA discount actually requires you to enter your AAA membership number.
Can you call AAA if youre not a member?Always keep your AAA membership card with you.
The same would work if you don’t have a membership but a friend traveling with you does. So if you found yourself asking “can I use my AAA for a friend” you now have your answer. Just make sure that whoever has the membership makes the call.
Will AAA tow my car if I’m drunk?
The “tipsy tow” service will be available for AAA members and non-members and is free for the first 10 miles of the tow. Beyond the 10 miles, a standard towing rate will be charged.
Is AAA Roadside Assistance Worth the Cost?
The average cost to tow a car is $109, according to Angie’s List. Therefore, you’re likely to recoup your membership fee if you take advantage of the discounts and make at least one service call.
Beyond the monetary value of membership, Jordan pointed out peace of mind and easy access to mechanics (that don’t work on commission) are helpful membership perks.
The annual membership fee is something you can plan for financially, unlike an unexpected car repair. “At least we know when we have to pay it, so we can budget for it,” says Jordan. That could be a huge plus if an emergency tow could derail your finances for the month.

You can see all of the perks and compare the benefits of the Classic, Plus and Premier memberships by going to the membership page on your local AAA site and selecting Compare Benefits.
Things to Remember
Keep in mind, you also have to pay the membership! There are promotions, but it’s not free. Plan costs are as follows:
- $59 for the Classic.
- $94 for the Plus.
- $120 for the Premium.
(These prices may vary for your area. You can visit aaa.com and select your region.)
One of the great things about AAA is that If you had forgotten to renew, they will let you renew instantly and use their service right away. However, if you did not renew on time, you can’t instantly upgrade the plan to get the longer transport.
Many try to save money and be smart about their options. Of course having a membership that may otherwise go unused can cost more than a one-time tow. The service offers assurance you can get help right away should you ever need to be towed for a breakdown while driving. They also are handy for lock-outs and jumps. So, that is also something to consider.
For the most up-to-date information, you can refer to the member handbook. To get assistance you can also reach them by phone directly or visit them online.
