If you do make a change in your membership level, be aware that your upgrade may require you to wait a few days before using the advanced service you've signed up for.

For example, these are the following "waiting time" guidelines for Roadside Assistance:

  • New members have to wait 2 days (48 hours) before they can use their Roadside Assistance benefits.
  • Members who are advancing to Plus or Premier, must wait 2 days (48 hours) in order to use their enhanced Roadside Assistance benefits.
  • Current members may use the Roadside Assistance benefits of their prior level of Membership.
  • All membership benefits, such as travel, price reductions, and DMV services, can be used right away.

If you do decide to upgrade your membership, all the Associate Members in your home will be upgraded as well.

Also, when requesting AAA California Insurance Emergency Road Service, you will need to provide the following:

  • Your AAA Membership card number and date of expiration
  • The precise place, make, model, year, color, and license number of the automobile
  • Information on the nature of the problem
