Ask for the “AAA Triple Check”

Members who have booked vacations through a AAA Travel advisor understand the value and security travel agents provide. AAA has been dedicated to finding money-saving vacation options for decades and often provides exclusive perks and benefits only AAA members are eligible to receive. Now, as the world is adjusting to new travel regulations, restrictions and protocols, the value of an agent is even more clear. AAA takes this worth to another level, offering members the opportunity to have their travel plans reviewed by a AAA Triple Check Certified Agent. Not only is this new service available to bookings made through the Club, but it is also being offered to all members regardless of whether the travel plans were booked through AAA.

“Travelers want to know that they’re making wise, safe, and secure travel plans. Security and peace of mind are pillars of the AAA brand.  Our agents will review any booking or itinerary – whether or not it’s with AAA – to ensure our members are not missing out on any perks. We also want to help our members make the most of their vacation plans.  Members should feel their vacation plans are set up for success in this new travel normal we all our currently facing.” shares Chuck Nardozza, Managing Director of Sales at AAA Northeast.

AAA Triple Check Certified Agents review itineraries and ensure that travelers are ready for their journey and understand the road ahead.  Agents compare travel plans against the AAA COVID-19 impact map, which highlights areas under restrictions for travel across the United States. Here, agents will inform members on how their plans could possibly be impacted by travel regulations.

But the review doesn’t end with COVID-19 navigations. Triple Check Agents will also assure members are aware of AAA Diamond-rated experiences along their journey. This includes rated and reviewed hotels, rental cars, and preferred partners who are available to make your vacation even more memorable. In addition, the review will dive deep into savings and add-ons, checking for AAA member exclusive pricing, rebates, future travel credits, and more. Your AAA membership entitles you to these perks and benefits, and AAA Travel is dedicated to finding you every opportunity to utilize these features and benefits.

“At the end of this process, AAA members should feel confident that they have spent their money wisely, have taken advantage of membership perks, and are ready to travel with confidence.” Nardozza shares.

The AAA Triple Check is supported by AAA Travel’s SmartDepart Agent Certification. This advanced training program provides agents with the skills necessary to understand and monitor domestic and international regulations impacting travel in 2020 and beyond. Through a series of lessons, modules, and classes, agents gain expertise in travel planning in a COVID-19 setting.

“The triple check and SmartDepart programs are designed to complement one another.” Susan Gauthier of the travel training department noted, “Combined, the two initiatives ensure AAA members are making safe decisions, while taking advantage of all the services and perks already included in their AAA membership.”
