Membership Benefits: Additional Services
The official publication of the Club is an important channel of information between the Club and members and is sent to each member household on a montly basis. Members also have access to the online version of AAA Horizons at AAA.com/Horizons.
AAA Gift and Add-On Memberships
As a AAA member, you can give the special people on your list a gift you know they'll appreciate — a AAA gift membership. Whether it's a birthday, holiday, graduation or just an opportunity to do something nice for someone you know, a AAA gift membership is one gift that special person can use all year long. Primary members can add household members to their membership at any time at special rates for Associate members. Join by calling 1-800-222-8252 or online at AAA.com.
Bail Bond Protection
Traffic laws and ordinances are often confusing, especially in unfamiliar territory; and local authorities may be less tolerant of strangers. When such an incident occurs, guilty or not, you may be required to put up cash bail to assure your appearance in court.
The posting of a bail bond to the average motorist is complicated and frequently expensive. AAA members, however, are provided with bail for any amount up to $5,000.
For state participation contact the nearest AAA or Canadian Automobile Association office by calling 1-800-AAA-HELP. Bail bond protection should be regarded as a loan, to spare you the discomfort of being detained in jail. You must pay the bond if it is forfeited or used to pay fines.
$1,000 Theft Reward Protection
When you're a AAA member, your car is covered 24 hours a day — wherever you may be — by your Club's AAA Theft Reward Service. A warning sticker on your car can discourage theft by announcing your Club's offer of a cash reward totaling $1,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of anyone stealing your car.
Legal Reimbursement Service
Legal representation in court is often necessary — and expensive. There are thousands of accidents and arrests every day. To assure a fair hearing for members, the Club pays for legal protection if you unintentionally or unknowingly violate motor vehicle laws. Reimbursement will not be made if you are convicted of hit-and-run, liquor or narcotics charges.
Expert Advice About Your Car
AAA can answer questions from members concerning automotive repair and maintenance problems, warranties, car financing, tires and batteries and new and used car purchases.
Notary Public Service
Free notary service is available to members at all AAA Southern New England offices for most documents requiring notary public certification. This is another example of the way in which your Club provides for your motoring needs. Members are not charged a fee.
Emergency Check Cashing Service
To provide you with cash for any unexpected emergencies, your Club has made special arrangements with AAA offices throughout the country and Canada to cash your personal check in an amount not to exceed $100.00 upon presentation of proper identification and your valid AAA membership card.
