President's Message - AAA Honors Hoosier Heroes

AAA Honors Hoosier Heroes 

This has been a year of both extraordinary sacrifice and service. So many have given so much in assistance to our Indiana region. As our way of thanking those who have made a positive impact in others’ lives at a troubling time, AAA sought to provide peace of mind to those who brought peace of mind to so many others. Whether an essential worker, first responder, health care professional, senior caregiver, mask maker, food pantry worker, school meal packer, virtual learning assistant, or anyone who went above and beyond to make life easier for others – they are the unsung heroes guiding us through the uncharted territory of a pandemic and beyond. 

As a result, AAA Hoosier Motor Club announced it was donating $25,000 in AAA memberships to local heroes, as nominated by friends, family, neighbors, coworkers, and others during the COVID-19 crisis around the world and particularly within our Hoosier communities.  

In this small way, we want to care for those who have taken such amazing care of fellow Hoosiers. Many thanks to all of you who have nominated or wish to nominate a local hero!  Visit for more information. 

Be Prepared as You Hit the Road this Winter 

When travel bans began lifting this summer, Americans began traveling again - taking more than 700 million trips. Not surprisingly, their preferred mode of transportation was the automobile.  Road trips accounted for 97% of all trips...a significant increase. We see this trend continuing during the holiday season, be it driving to visit relatives or merely chasing a change of scenery. 

As you plan your winter driving expedition, you may find value in considering upgrading your AAA membership as many of our members have. AAA Plus and Premier Memberships offer expanded value, coverage and benefits.  A major benefit is that you are provided towing up to 100 miles free of charge, saving you $300-$400 in extra towing charges (quite possibly even more during the holiday season). Additionally, you can save at least $20 off a new battery purchase and up to 15% off travel store items. Upgraded coverages also expand Auto Trip Interruption coverage, lockout service, extraction services, and provide all the benefits of the Classic membership. There is even coverage for the growing popularity of recreational vehicles with AAA Plus RV. 

Many of our members prefer having this extra margin of service and safety as they travel. Wherever your road trip takes you this holiday season, please consider if upgrading your AAA membership will best serve you and your peace of mind.  Visit, visit a branch, or call us at 844-GOAAAGO. 

Here’s wishing you and yours a happy and safe holiday season
