How AAA Works For You - An Overview Of Our Organization

Organization Overview

AAA was founded over 100 years ago for the purpose of lobbying for driver and passenger rights, fair laws and safer vehicles — all to better promote the love of the open road and the adventure of driving. Since then, AAA has grown to over 50 million members strong while providing valuable membership services such as roadside assistance. Additionally, AAA has broadened its horizons to include all types of travel-related services, as well as offer a variety of insurance and financial products and services.

Today, approximately 25 percent of households in the United States have AAA Memberships and more than 28 percent of North American passenger vehicles belong to AAA Members. Each year, AAA:

  • Dispatches roadside assistance to nearly 30 million motorists
  • Generates $8.5 billion in insurance premiums
  • Sells $3 billion in travel agency services, making AAA Travel Agency the leading full-service leisure travel agency in North America
  • Distributes nearly 160 million copies of travel-related materials, making AAA one of the world’s largest travel publishers
  • Provides information on more than 60,000 AAA Approved and Diamond-rated lodgings and restaurants, nearly 17,000 AAA Approved attractions and 21,000 events
  • Advocates for consumer rights and safety improvements at local, state and national levels

AAA continues to exist solely for its members and is committed to providing safety, security, peace of mind and unparalleled service and savings.
