Find Discounts for Your Summer Road Trip
If you want to maximize summer fun, make the most out of every dollar. Using your AAA discounts to their fullest is a great first step. Whether you’re on a staycation or heading out on an epic summer road trip, AAA discounts can help you save in so many ways.
Be Road Trip Ready
Maintain your ride in tip-top shape. One of our newer partners — Discount Tire — is offering a discount of $10 per tire for its Better or Best Category tires. Or, if you need an oil change, stop by Valvoline, where you can save 15% and get an oil change in less time than your average sitcom. With gas prices still high, signing up for Shell Fuel Rewards is a no-brainer; you’ll save $0.05 per gallon every fill-up and can take advantage of limited-time offers as well.
Your Ticket to Fun
Here’s a tip: Whichever summer destinations you visit, buy tickets to the top attractions and tours through AAA Tickets. From Disney and Universal Studios parks to hot concerts and Broadway shows, you can save as much as 40%. AAA can help with savings at local institutions, too. Save 10% on admission at LeMay – America’s Car Museum in Tacoma, home to four floors of unbelievably cool vehicles, from classic muscle cars to historical oddities to modern stunners. In addition, consider a sightseeing cruise with renowned Argosy Cruises. You can experience Seattle’s harbor or check out the fascinating Hiram M. Chittenden Ballard Locks, all at 20% off.
The right gear can make any summer journey more enjoyable. Spoil your pet with travel accessories like harnesses, car protectors and pet backpacks from EzyDog or Kurgo, both offering a 20% discount. Save 10% at Rack N Road, where you can find the right racks to haul bikes, kayaks and almost everything, plus sleek and extremely handy cargo boxes. (Restrictions apply). Plus, upgrade your purse, backpack or tote with a fun and fresh bag from Baggalini, a top choice among many AAA members. Their chic, well-designed bags make excellent companions on longer trips or everyday errands, and you receive a 5% discount.
