  • Changing flat tires.
  • Jump-starting dead batteries or installing new batteries on the scene.
  • Unlocking your vehicle:
    AAA Plus Lockout Service includes automotive key and lock service and up to $100 for parts and labor when necessary to make the car operable or to gain entry.
  • Making minor adjustments to start your vehicle or providing towing, if necessary, to the service provider's station or repair facility of your choice. AAA Plus Members receive up to 100 free towing miles.
  • Delivering fuel to stranded members. AAA Plus includes delivery of a sufficient quantity of fuel to enable you to reach an open service station.
  • Extrication - AAA Plus allows two service vehicles and two drivers.

You may call upon Emergency Road Service through the nearest AAA office, or call our own nationwide toll-free service number, 1-800-AAA-HELP. Emergency Road Service is provided to four-wheeled cars or light trucks that a AAA member is driving or riding in.

Assistance is limited by the safe maximum lifting capacity of equipment used by the service provider when lifting is necessary. (Dual-wheeled pickup trucks are covered for towing if the truck that arrives can safely lift them. Dual-wheeled pickups are also covered for other services, except tire service on the dual wheels.)

AAA pays for certain legal protection when members are charged with moving violations of the motor vehicle laws.

Legal assistance is available to you through AAA if you are cited for a moving traffic violation (excluding cases involving liquor or narcotics and parking violations), or when you need advice concerning ownership or operation of an automobile. Your legal fees will be reimbursed according to our schedule. Naturally, members are responsible for any fines the court may impose. If a member is entitled to reimbursement for defense in court, he/she is NOT entitled to reimbursement for legal advice in the same matter.
