The American Automobile Association (AAA) is a membership organization that provides many car-related services. People usually know AAA for its roadside assistance service, which provides help to members who experience car issues on the road. Other services include towing, battery replacement, flat tire assistance, and locksmith access. 

While AAA offers a variety of discounts on a range of different products and services, it does not offer a nationwide senior discount on its yearly membership program. However, seniors can still save with the number of other discounts from the organization that extend even beyond car services. Read on to find out what you can save on.

Key takeaways:

  • AAA doesn’t have a national AAA senior discount on their memberships, but seniors can save in other ways. 

  • An AAA membership comes with various discounts on useful products and services in travel, restaurants, insurance, and more.
