Car and Hotel Benefits with AAA/CAA

Introduction Image for: Car and Hotel Benefits with AAA/CAA

Gain Peace of Mind with AAA/CAA and Enjoy Great Travel Perks!

July 2017

We greatly appreciate when you click on any of our hotel links or ads and book a stay directly on our travel partners’ websites where you’ll enjoy the best rates!

While AAA can provide peace of mind when it comes to a breakdown of your car, it also offers many discounts with those travel companies to which you are loyal. 

In most cases, if you are able to take advantage of one or more of AAA’s discounts and/or the Hertz free rental day promotion, you can more than pay for your AAA investment on an annual basis. 

Here are just a few examples:  

  • You receive complimentary Hertz discounts, a Hertz Gold Plus Membership and enough points for 1 to 2 free-weekend days. Those AAA members with a Gold enrollment date on or after February 1, 2012 will qualify for 675-1100 Bonus Points. See other terms and conditions and enroll.
  • At many hotels, the AAA rate is usually close to or equal to the advanced-purchase rate, which is usually non-refundable. With AAA you typically have the flexibility to change or cancel that reservation close to the day of your stay. You can usually save up to 10% to 20%. Some AAA rates even include breakfast and/or late check-out. Review the details thoroughly - each property and rate may have special conditions - but this can be great way to add a lot of flexibility and save money on your hotel stays. Just choose the AAA rate when booking.
  • You also receive other travel and shopping discounts! Each AAA is regional so some of the other discounts and terms will vary but the discounts are usually between 15% to 20%.

Bonus trvlvip Tip:

I signed up for the Hertz 675-1100 Bonus Points promotion as a AAA Premier Member. I rented shortly after signing up for this promotion. I noticed I was not credited the bonus points three months later so I emailed Hertz and got no response. I recently accessed the Hertz instant chat tool to inquire about the missing points and the Hertz representative was able to credit the 1100 points to my Hertz account immediately. So keep an eye on your account and contact Hertz if you don’t see the bonus points credited after about two months.

The Wrap-Up:

With AAA, you gain peace of mind when it comes to your personal cars and you also enjoy some great travel benefits and discounts, that can far exceed the annual cost of the membership.
