Ask AAA Members if the price of their Membership is worth access to roadside assistance and most would say, “Yes!” But how many take full advantage of the other travel discounts and benefits available to them? The savings you reap from cashing in on just a few travel discounts and benefits can pay for your Membership. And if you remember to ask about discounts for AAA Members every time you pay for an attraction, rent a car, book a hotel or buy something, you’ll come out way ahead.

This time, as part of our Travel Smarter series, our experts share the best ways you can take advantage of AAA Travel’s discounts on local attractions and Member perks aboard a cruise ship.

Today, people's lives are so busy. We're thinking three days ahead just to get through our to-do lists. I love helping my clients plan vacations where they have nothing to do but relax; where time stands still, and you're just on vacation.
