Occasionally, There Is No Service Provider Available to Help You--Even if You're a AAA Member

We Include This Email Not to Dis AAA, but To Inform You of the Issues That All Auto Clubs Face

"I have a AAA family membership. Twice in the last three months, my daughter has been left stranded in the middle of the night by AAA with the "explanation" that no towing garage was available. Once I had to drive and get her myself. The second time, she had to call the police for assistance. I am interested in changing to Better World Club but I would like assurance that roadside assistance is actually provided rather than just promised. What is your policy if a towing company cannot be located? "

Our Answer: First we would call everyone within a 10 mile radius of the breakdown (20 if you are in a rural area). The middle of the night does pose a small problem because many places are not open. However we would call 15-20 people before we would tell the customer that we need to change strategies. Then we grab the yellow pages and start making calls. Sometimes the dispatcher will ask the customer if they know of any companies near by. Often the customer does.

We may find a provider who will ask for the member to pay. If this happens we would reimburse you for the full amount of the tow.
