AAA Roadside Assistance is so much more than towing

Our legendary 24-hour Roadside Assistance is why many members join and renew. And when you need us, we’re there. If you lock your keys in your car, get a flat tire, need a jump start, or break down on the road, we can be there to help, day or night, even if it’s not your car.1
Photo ID required. See Member Guide for full details. Certain restrictions apply to services.
For RV and Motorcycle Assistance in Southern California: 1-800-400-4222  |  For help outside of Southern California: 1-800-AAA-HELP

Roadside Assistance covers these services:

  • If your vehicle needs a lift, we’ll tow it to a repair shop, the nearest gas station, or another preferred location.1
  • If you get locked out of your vehicle, a technician will try to help. If you need a locksmith, we’ll help cover some of the cost.
  • If your vehicle has a spare tire ready to go, we can replace a flat. Otherwise, we’ll give you a tow.
  • If your car won’t start, we can test the battery for free, and jump-start or replace it on the spot.2
  • If your car runs out of fuel, we’ll bring you enough so you can reach the nearest gas station and fill up there.3

  • If your vehicle breaks down, the technician may attempt minor repairs to help get you back on the road.

Having car trouble? AAA is here to help

From the convenience of requesting Roadside Assistance with a quick call or through the Auto Club App to getting high-quality care at a AAA Approved Auto Repair facility, you can trust AAA to help you get back on the road.

In a hurry? Get priority service

Members receive priority service when they have their vehicle towed to a AAA Approved Auto Repair facility. That means a vehicle evaluation within 60 minutes of AAA tow arrival, and assistance in obtaining alternate transportation. Plus receive 10 percent (up to $50) off regularly-priced parts and labor.4

AAA Mobile Battery Service

Sometimes you’re better off replacing a dead battery than jumping it. That’s why AAA Mobile Battery Service provides a convenient battery testing and replacement service that comes to you. If your battery fails the test and needs replacing, our technician can professionally install a AAA battery to get you back on the road.2

Motorcycle with Infinite possibilities

Does AAA Roadside Assistance cover motorcycles? What about RVs?

Whether your vehicle of choice has two wheels or comes with a queen-size bed, you’ll still enjoy peace of mind. Our Classic membership already includes locksmith assistance and emergency fuel delivery for your RV and motorcycle. AAA Premier® and AAA Plus® members can add RV towing, extrication, and tire change service, as well as motorcycle towing, for $30 per year. This allows you to use your existing four annual tows for RVs, motorcycles, and travel trailers that you own, borrow, or rent, up to 100 miles each (and up to 200 miles on one tow per household for AAA Premier members).5 These benefits extend across the U.S. and Canada. For more information, see our member benefits chart and which vehicles are included.
