AAA Insurance – We’ve all probably heard of AAA right? If your car breaks down, someone asks, “Do you have AAA?” or “Have you called AAA?” The group is well known for its towing and roadside assistance services. You may also hear people ask at stores everywhere, “Do you have a discount for AAA?”. And it is true that there are a lot of membership perks with the AAA membership.
Do you know that AAA also offers insurance? Well they do – AAA insurance. They have a great package policy here in Florida that will bundle your AAA car insurance and AAA homeowners insurance or condo insurance policies.

AAA Insurance Benefits
If you have an accident, AAA insurance will use original equipment replacement parts for structural components. Some other companies will use aftermarket parts in this situation.
AAA offers an add-on option for umbrella coverage. This provides a higher limit of liability for both your auto and home coverage.
AAA Drive is a usage-based insurance program that you can use to earn a discount up to 30% on your auto rates. The program monitors things like phone distraction, smooth driving, speed, time of day, fatigue, etc to calculate your earned discount. (Learn More)

If I Don’t Have AAA Insurance, Should I Get Roadside on my Policy or Get a AAA Membership?
First, if you haven’t gotten a quote for AAA Insurance recently, we’d be happy to check into that for you. However, it is a common question about the best place for your roadside assistance protection.
Should you have the coverage on your auto policy, or should you get a separate AAA membership? There are pros and cons to both options, and people can choose whichever works best for them. We are happy to answer any questions and help you with either option that you choose.

The cost vs the effect of a claim are 2 of the biggest factors for most people. One thing to consider: Are you someone that remembers to ask for a discount? How many places have you heard give a AAA discount?
If you remember to ask for this throughout the year during your normal outings, you will probably save enough money to justify the cost of the membership. Check out this flyer for options. (*Prices subject to change.)
Another thing to consider are the additional benefits of the AAA membership. Aside from the roadside assistance and AAA discounts, you have travel benefits and other benefits. These are detailed in the flyer above, but just a quick overview includes things like car travel interruption, accident insurance, passport photos, identity theft monitoring, and more!
