AAA offering special membership for studentsWritten by Duane Ramsey | | firstname.lastname@example.org
AAA Northwest Ohio introduced a new student membership and website Aug. 15 exclusively for students ages 17 to 23.
Students can take advantage of all that AAA memberships offer plus additional relevant benefits not offered with its other levels of membership. The student membership is available at a discounted price starting at $35.50 per year and guaranteed for four years.
“The Student Membership offers peace of mind for parents and students, no matter where they are,” April Cochran, marketing operations manager for AAA Northwest Ohio based in Toledo, stated in a press release.
Cochran said that AAA has students covered with bike assistance, safe ride and safe tow features to address the many uncertainties of life.
With safe ride, AAA will reimburse the cost of a cab ride as an alternative option to one of its service calls if student members finds themselves stranded or otherwise unable to get home.
As part of roadside assistance, the safe tow option will help the student member if they are unable to drive home safely medical treatment, physical injury or even consumption of alcohol.
Bicycle assistance is another addition to the benefits of AAA student membership. If a rider experiences a flat tire, broken chain or worse, AAA will transport the member and his or her bicycle to a point of safety within 25 miles.
These new benefits are exclusive to the AAA Student Membership, Cochran reported.
Student members can also take advantage of all other member discounts in addition to exclusive e-coupons. That includes discounts on insurance, travel, car maintenance and repair at any of the Car Care Plus facilities in the Toledo area.
AAA Northwest Ohio offered the student membership as a way to provide younger members with an additional value to their AAA membership.
Current AAA members who are eligible may switch to the student membership at their next renewal if they wish. Cochran reported that they already have had some students sign up for it.
“With AAA’s student membership, I can ride my bike to school and know I am covered. And I don’t have to fight for a parking spot … bonus!” said Brandi Conners, a UT student and new AAA student member.
“And it covers you if I’m stuck at a party and can’t drive home,” said Kyle Ostrander, another student member from BGSU.
Cochran said AAA will promote the campaign at local colleges and universities during student events such as football games this fall.
“Students can plan their spring break trips knowing they are covered and receive member discounts,” Cochran stated in the release. “With member discounts, AAA Insurance and Car Care Plus can help keep more money in the parents’ and college students’ wallets.”
AAA also introduced AAACampus.com, a new customized website where students can select from a list of local schools and view interactive pages designed to emphasize all the benefits of AAA.
