Roadside Service Reimbursement form (PDF)

NOTES: AAA must have been called first. Delays, police ordered tows, severe weather, etc, do not necessarily warrant reimbursement. When reimbursement is agreed upon, it will be at AAA Contractor rates, which may be less than private garage. This completed form and original receipts in member's name must be received by AAA within 30 days of service.

How to Track Your AAA Service Truck

You can opt-in text messages to get updates on when your truck will arrive. Standard text message rates will apply. With our GPS-enabled trucks, you can see the truck on its way to you with Service Tracker. AAA will text you a link to track your truck.

Understanding Your Roadside Assistance Coverage

All membership plans include 4 service calls per year, per member. You’re covered in any passenger car you ride or drive in. Service calls can include:

  • AAA Towing: For towing services, we’ll send a tow truck from our Albany garage to tow your car to the destination of your choice. Mileage included with your membership plan is free. Additional mileage cost is $3.75 per mile plus tax ($4.05). Compare membership plans.
  • AAA Flat tire repair service: We can inflate and install your spare tire. If you have locking lug nuts, you’ll need to provide us with the key. For a small fee, AAA can plug a tire if it is safe to do so. Tire plugs are not a permanent repair. Learn More
  • AAA Jumpstart service: AAA drivers can jumpstart your car battery. Weather permitting, AAA can do an on-site battery test and provide roadside battery replacement. You can purchase a new battery at a discounted price, which AAA will install for free. Learn More
  • AAA Gas delivery: We’ll deliver a few gallons if you run out of gas. Basic members pay current gas prices. Learn More
