AAA (triple A) aka American Automobile Association was founded in 1902, in Chicago Illinois by nine motor clubs with a total of 1500 members, due to the lack of roads suitable for cars.
By 1905 they published the first road maps and by 1917 they began publishing lists of hotels along the roads.
With over 50 million loyal members depending on AAA’s roadside assistance and guides, it was a logical progression that AAA would also provide its members with insurance such as:
Auto, travel, life and home insurance – its current headquarters are in Heathrow Florida.
As an auto insurance carrier, AAA will offer discounts on extended auto repairs, in addition to the discounts offered for car insurance, such as:
- Multiple policies/vehicles
- Safe drivers record
- Car safety features
- Senior Citizen
Some AAA auto divisions will also offer a discount for paying the full 12 month premium upfront.
Overall the company’s client satisfaction and overall rating is far greater than most other insurance companies.
Some insureds have had continuous policies with AAA for over 40 years and have had claims – they all seem satisfied with the outcome.
With over 100 years of mostly not-for-profit services to its members, AAA’s reputation precedes them and their client base is constantly expanding.
