As a AAA member we have the benefit of obtaining trip information from AAA travel offices. We purchase the AAA club membership for the security of having roadside help if we need it and have utilized it occasionally in the past but more often we use the trip planning service. A quick stop in at this local office is convenient. The office handles insurance, trip planning and travel agent service but I have only ever used the trip planning. The customer service agents who help with trip planning offer great advise and information. I have never been disappointed with a visit to AAA.
