right#1 Roadside help, anytime

Roadside Assistance is the main reason people join AAA, and why they renew year after year. Not just for major breakdowns, either. Lock your keys in the car or get a flat and we’ll be there, day or night throughout the US and Canada. Our average arrival time is about 30 minutes in the metropolitan areas of Dallas, Houston, San Antonio, and Austin. If your trouble is a failed battery, AAA Battery Service can test it and then offer a tow, jump-start or replacement at a discounted member price—right then and there, for most makes and models. Your membership covers you, not your vehicle, so you can call whether you are in your own car, a friend’s, or a rental. Read more information and any terms and conditions that may apply.
