10 Great Benefits of AAA Washington Membership
1. Save on hotels. Need a place to stay? Your AAA Washington membership unlocks discounts of up to 15% at hotel and motel chains in Washington state, around the country and the globe. Just a few of our partners include Best Western, Hilton, Hampton Inn, Hyatt Hotels, JW Marriott, Renaissance Hotels, Ritz-Carlton, Sheraton hotels & Resorts, and more.
Bonus: Members get discounts of up to 10% on food and non-alcoholic drinks at restaurants, such as the Hard Rock Café and Joe’s Crab Shack.
2. Save on rental cars. You can also find great deals with national rental companies. Hertz offers up to 20% off the base rate and up to 35% off EV rentals, plus will waive the fee for additional drivers. Plus, every AAA Washington membership includes free Hertz Gold Plus Rewards Membership.
Meanwhile, Thrifty Car Rental gives you an 8% discount on car rentals and 10% off navigation units. Dollar Rent A Car offers a discount of 10% off a car rental and 10% off the cost of a navigation unit. The bottom line: AAA members don’t pay full price for rental cars.
3. AAA Tickets. Whether you are hitting a major theme park, planning to see a Broadway show in the Big Apple or catch your favorite sport’s team in Seattle, you can get big savings by booking with AAA Tickets. Planning a family friendly vacation with the kids? Save anywhere from 15%-30% and more at major theme parks, like Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando Resort and LEGOLAND. Plus, you can also find tickets using AAA Tickets to big concerts that have sold out on other ticket platforms.
4. Save on insurance. One of the many perks members receive is a discount from several insurance companies that partner with AAA Washington. You can save as much as 8% on car insurance. Plus, you can tap into expert advice from experienced AAA Washington agents that will find the best policies for your needs, including car, home, flood, earthquake, umbrella or life insurance. If you’re a AAA Washington member, find an agent near you or request a quote.
5. Emergency bicycle service. Did you know that if your bicycle/e-bike breaks down, you can call us for help? Yes, that’s right. Just like with your car, we will respond if you have a bicycle breakdown. If you are in an area where our tow trucks can go, we’ll pick you and your disabled bike up and drive you where you need to go. Your AAA Washington membership includes the same towing mileage as your car (5 miles with a Classic membership, 100 miles for Plus/Premier and one 200-mile tow for Premier members).
6. Identity theft protection. Every AAA Washington membership includes for free identity theft protection from Experian. The features include credit monitoring, assistance with canceling credit and debit cards if your wallet is lost or stolen, and fraud resolution support if someone does steal your identity and you need help. Additionally, AAA Washington Premier members can automatically qualify for up to $10,000 in identity theft insurance if money is stolen out of an account.
7. Fuel Delivery. AAA Washington will also bring fuel to you if you run out of gas. We’ll deliver enough fuel so you can get to the nearest gas station. Classic members are charged the current pump prices; there is no fuel charge for Plus and Premier members.
8. Tap into more great discounts. Gas, auto parts, T-Mobile cell service, pet products, flowers — with a AAA Washington membership, you qualify for a vast array of discounts. Need office supplies? Members save up to 75% on preferred products at Office Depot/Office Max stores and online. Feeling hungry? Order from HelloFresh and receive 55% off your first box and 15% for 51 weeks thereafter. Need a gift for a co-worker? Order a gift basket and save 20% from 1-800-Baskets. The discounts are too numerous to name. See the full list here.
9. Battery Service. Another big part of AAA Washington’s roadside assistance program is a free battery service. If you can’t get your car started at home or around town, we’ll come to you, test your battery and provide a jumpstart. Depending on where you are, we can also replace the battery during the service call—and you’ll get a member-only discounted price on the battery. Plus, AAA has thousands of AAA-affiliated Auto Repair shops across the country, where you can receive a discount of up to 10% on repair labor.
10. AAA Washington Roadside Assistance. If you get into an accident, have a flat or break down, you can call us and we will tow you for up to 5 to 200 miles depending on your membership level. Under most circumstances, we can also winch you out of a ditch or other tough spot, or help you open your car door if you lock the keys inside. Roadside assistance is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week 365 days a year.
These are just some ways you can save with your AAA Washington membership. But this is just the beginning.
