Relief packages to return more than $285M amid reduction in miles-driven
Washington, D.C. (April 20, 2020) – AAA, North America’s largest motoring and leisure travel organization, understands the financial challenges and uncertainty many Americans are facing. As we stay home and vehicles are driven less, AAA insurers have announced relief packages that will refund more than $285M to auto policyholders.
AAA auto insurance policyholders insured through Auto Club Enterprises Insurance Group, AAA – The Auto Club Group, Motor Club Insurance Company in Rhode Island and CSAA Insurance Group are eligible for the refund. The refund comes in response to a reduction in miles driven and, as a result, an anticipated decrease in the number of insurance claims.
“Right now, we can all use good news. Where AAA can make that happen for our members facing difficult times – be it providing roadside service, rebooking a vacation or putting money back in wallets – AAA stands ready to assist,” said Marshall Doney, AAA president and CEO. “For over 100 years, we have been there for our Members and we will continue to be there as we move forward.”
AAA insurers are independently operated, and timeframes and other details concerning the refund vary by insurer. To learn more about the refund, members can visit AAA.com.
In addition to relief packages, a number of AAA clubs are providing free roadside service for healthcare workers and first responders amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Within their communities, clubs are providing local support including purchasing and delivering meals to first responders, donating supplies to healthcare centers and contributing over $1 million to United Way and other charities for local COVID-19 relief efforts. Frontline heroes can also find special discount offers, including free standard oil change, at select car care centers.
