Emergency Roadside Assistance
If visiting for 90 days or less, you are entitled to BASIC Emergency Roadside Assistance. Follow this link for more details on BASIC Emergency Roadside Assistance. With AAA, the membership cardholder is covered for emergency road service, not the car. Recreation vehicles (RVs) and motorcycles are not covered by these BASIC road services.
Benefits for AAA Members Traveling Overseas
AAA recommends that members obtain an International Drivers Permit (IDP) prior to traveling overseas. Although many countries do not recognize U.S. driver’s licenses, most countries accept an International Driving Permit (IDP). IDPs are honored in more than 150 countries outside the U.S. See AAA’s application form for the list of countries.
The IDP functions as an official translation of a U.S. driver’s license into 10 foreign languages. Article 24 of the United Nations Convention on Road Traffic (1949) authorizes the U.S. Department of State to empower certain organizations to issue IDPs to those who hold valid U.S. driver’s licenses. These licenses are not intended to replace valid U.S. state licenses and should only be used as a supplement to a valid license. IDPs are not valid in an individual’s country of residence
