Quick and with fewer clicks, AAA’s redesigned Web site offers savings and services

To enhance your online experience and help you find the AAA information and services you need more quickly, is sporting a new look.

The redesigned site now boasts a more vibrant color scheme and includes larger, brighter titles to help you find popular topics. The home page also includes more of the most popular links to give you one-click access to the information you need.

With the new design, check out some of our newer features. For instance, from the home page you can now enter your zip code to locate gas prices through the TripTik Travel Planner. The program shows a map with the gas stations listed, and when you drag the cursor over the station, the station’s name, address and price of its gas pops up.

In the travel section on the home page, click on “Hotel + Car + Air” to get great deals on packages from many U.S. cities. These “dynamic packages” have been enhanced to offer more cities, airlines and car rental choices. Even if you’re not planning to fly or need a car, check out this area to customize your trip and find the combination of travel components to suit you.

If you need a quick vacation, click on the “Last Minute Deals” tab where you can search for and book trips from two to 14 days in advance. These deeply discounted trips start at under $250.

Members who need passport details or are planning an international trip are just one click away from these topics, which are conveniently located under the Travel Services section on the home page.

There is also a world of savings on AAA’s Web site. Click on “Member Savings” from the “Savings” section to view all the discounts available to you.

Personal account information also has a cleaner look. Click on “My Account” in the top corner of the home page to view information and make payments for membership and auto or home insurance.
