Summer is finally here! And that summer getaway you've been dreaming about all year is just around the corner! Let AAA help you plan and pack with these summer vacation essentials. 


If this season finds you headed to an exotic locale that requires plane travel, you could be spending a pretty penny to arrive at your destination. Between airfare, fees, and parking, it can get expensive. Luckily, AAA members receive 10% off airport rides with SuperShuttle, the most recognized airport shuttle in the U.S., providing rides for more than 9 million passengers per year. If you prefer to drive yourself to the airport, AAA can save you 15% on the daily rate and waiver of the $3 reservation fee with Park 'N Go. 


Our country's beautiful landscapes, historic sites, and extensive national parks make a beautiful backdrop for a U.S. train trip this summer. Not only is train travel less expensive than air travel, but it is also less stressful, letting you and your family relax and take in the sights. AAA has partnered with Amtrak to offer fantastic travel packages at 10% off fares for adults and up to 50% off for accompanying children


Some of our greatest childhood memories come from the proverbial summer family road trip. If you are looking to hit the open road this summer, AAA can make car travel as stress-free as possible. Visit your local AAA Car Care location for a free pre-road trip inspection, including a battery check. AAA offers premium batteries with the best service in the business. You could also rent a car for your outing. AAA members save 10-20% from Hertz. Make sure to download our Mobile App which provides exclusive member discounts, access to roadside assistance, the lowest gas prices, as well as travel planning tools.


These days, our smartphones act as our travel concierge. From getting directions and making dinner reservations to taking memorable photos, we can't do without our cell phone on summer trips. With Sprint and AAA, you will have peace of mind on the road, and while using your wireless device. AAA members receive rate plan savings, a 25% discount on eligible accessories and FREE Family Locator Service. And if Sprint is already your cellular provider, Sprint will cover your AAA Basic Membership renewal for free! Make sure your cell phone is protected from any incidental damage and protect yourself from identity theft with Norton. AAA members can take $37 off a 1-year subscription to Norton Security Standard, $52 off a Deluxe subscription, and $62 off the Premium plan.


Sometime this summer, you will need to fit in a visit to a local attraction. The Carolinas have something for everyone with amusement parks, aquariums, water parks, and more. Visit Ticket Monster, where AAA members receive 15% or more off all theater, concert, sporting event, and attraction tickets.

Before your summer getaway, make sure your membership is up to date. Your AAA Membership can help make your summer vacation easy with countless discounts, roadside assistance, and travel planning tools. You can easily manage your AAA membership online or call 1-866-593-8626 while on the road.
