Trip Interruption Reimbursement - AAA Minneapolis


Trip Interruption Reimbursement

This valuable membership service provides financial help to any member whose vehicle is stolen, not drivable due to damage caused by a traffic accident, 100 miles or more away from home. Members may be reimbursed if they are driving or riding in the vehicle which becomes damaged at the time of the accident or collision.

AAA Plus, AAA Plus RV, AAA Premier, or AAA Premier RV members also may receive reimbursement for expenses resulting from mechanical breakdown.

Reimbursement is based on actual out-of-pocket expenses incurred, not including taxes, gratuities, fuel or alcohol, for a combination of meals and lodging or transportation:

  • Local lodging and meals in the vicinity where your car is being repaired.
  • Rental or replacement car to continue your trip. Remember, your AAA membership entitles you to special member discounts on Hertz car rentals.
  • Commercial transportation (via common carrier licensed to carry passengers for hire) to your destination or home, whichever is closer. Receipts are required for all expenses.
  • Basic members may be reimbursed up to $100 each with a maximum of $500 per family.
  • AAA Plus/Plus RV members may be reimbursed up to $250 each with a maximum of $1,000 per family.
  • AAA Premier/Premier RV members may be reimbursed up to $1,500 each.

This service applies only to expenses personally incurred by the member within 72 hours following the accident/incident. Proof of payment(s) must be submitted. If expenses are shared by more than one member, each may submit his share of the cost for reimbursement, but totals may not exceed the gross amount actually incurred. No vehicle repair costs are covered. Theft expense reimbursement does not apply when the car is/was in custody of a non-member. No reimbursement will be made for certain unlawful cases, including driving while under the influence.

To receive payment, submit a Trip Interruption Reimbursement form, along with a police report or repair bill, and itemized receipts. Your request must be received by our office within 30 days after the incident occurred

AAA Premier and AAA Premier RV claim forms are available by calling us toll-free at (800) 390-3894 (select option “4” for customer service).

Please note: AAA Premier road trip cannot exceed 45 consecutive days and travel must include at least one overnight stay.
