CAA Roadside Assistance

As the wintery weather approaches it is even more important to mare sure you are protected.  Having an emergency kit in your car is a great idea, but what about roadside assistance?  Doesn’t matter if you need a tow, ran out of gas, or if you locked your keys in the car… one call to CAA and you will have the help you need in no time.


A CAA membership offers the peace of mind that no matter where you go you are covered. That’s right your membership covers YOU, not your car.  So no matter what vehicle you are in, driving with a friend or maybe in a rental while on vacation your CAA coverage comes with you.


CAA offers a range of membership options to fit your needs.  In our household a basic membership is all I need, while Hubs has a Plus membership since his commute to work is longer and if he needed a tow we would need the extra km.  You can see a comparison of the membership levels here:

CAA Membership Levels

Each membership not only comes with CAA Roadside Assistance, but also a whole host of other benefits including savings and discounts at retailers and attractions in Canada and the USA.  Travel planning has never been easier with access to maps and tour books from CAA.  And my favourite travel planning resource exclusive to CAA: the TripTik® route planner which not only gives you turn by turn directions to your destination, but also notes detours & construction, rest stops, and hospitals among other things.


A CAA membership is a must have for any driver – roadside assistance is just a phone call away, also show your CAA card for extra saving at many retailers and attractions.  Don’t forget the great savings you can get when you head out to a Cineplex Movie!
