AAA Membership Cancellation Policy Refunds and How To Get Them

AAA or The American Automobile Association is a not-for-profit national federation of motor clubs across the United States and Canada. It was founded in 1902 in Chicago and counts more than 60 million members.

The association consists of 42 regional clubs which primarily provide help in road emergencies, including:

  • Towing
  • Lockouts
  • Tire changes
  • Winching
  • Battery replacement, etc.

Besides roadside assistance, AAA memberships come with other perks like various discounts, Hertz benefits, identity theft protection, car insurance, and travel deals.

AAA Refund Policy

AAA offers its members different tiers of subscription plans with numerous benefits, but what if you decide that the whole deal is not worth your money? The users who cancel their AAA memberships are entitled to prorated refunds of the paid dues. The refunds exclude any new member admission fees and discounts you used in the meantime. Whenever possible, AAA will use the original form of payment to credit you back.

Some regional clubs have time constraints for refund eligibility. The Western and Central New York club allows members to request refunds within 30 days from starting the membership or the membership renewal date. They reduce the refund amount by discounts or the cost of any service you might have used while the membership was valid. Entrance fees are also non-refundable.

Since membership regulations might be slightly different in your area, it is best to carefully read your agreement with AAA or contact the local chapter to clarify your refund rights.
