I have been with AAA for 29 years in NY. My membership renewal is due in March and here in DE. it is more expensive than NY. I am open to hearing other options if you have them.

The rates do seem to have gone up. I have a membership for myself , my wife and my son. I would not be without it. I have had experience with requesting help when in the RT1 Lewes/Rehoboth area. I have been very happy with the service. With a AAA membership and a cell phone your are never alone if you have car problems even at night off season. I strongly recommend it Nuts.

We've never had Triple A, or anything like it. If we're ever stranded with car trouble we can't take care of ourselves, we call our local garage. When you do business with the same garage for over 50 years, they tend to remember. Now out-of-state travel, is a different story. We've been lucky and haven't needed help, but Triple A I guess would come in handy.

Yes, I am very much a fan of AAA and have availed myself of their services in the past. Longnecker, I am happy to hear that you were pleased with the service. That was my concern as on LI there are tons of AAA affiliated stations but I have not noticed the logos in many places here. I no doubt will stick with them. Again, to both of you, my guardian angels in my adopted state, my thanks.

I think the membership cost for AAA has gone up considerably over the past few years. Most new cars come with road side assistance for a short period of time. We still maintain AAA and have used it while in Delaware to jump a battery. We try to make the most of the discounts AAA offers to offset the cost of having it.

We dropped AAA when we realized that our auto insurance through State Farm covered roadside assistance -- why pay for two? We've been happy with the service we've gotten with State Farm's program.

I have AAA Plus and have been happy with the whole deal. Road side assistance, hotel/motel discounts, travel services etc.

Like Kristin, I use my State Farm roadside assistance if ever needed. Can't beat $3.20/year and good service!

If you are eligible for USAA, look into that. Roadside included with the auto insurance, cheaper insurance rates and the service is excellent.
