How long does it take AAA to respond to roadside assistance calls?

I'm looking at roadside assistance memberships and AAA looks good. I'm just worried about their response times. How long does it take AAA to respond to a call?

AAA has on-call technicians and drivers that can usually get to you pretty quickly, provided:
  • you’re not stranded in the middle of nowhere,
  • the weather isn’t bad,
  • the time of the incident is reasonable (midnight vs. noon).
AAA states that its average response time is 21 minutes, but in rare instances, you might wait up to an hour depending on weather, timing, etc.
You can also get a roadside membership with the Jerry app. Along with traditional benefits, you get Uber-like tracking for the status of your service and the ability to contact your service provider directly for as low as $4.16 a month.
Jerry also will help you compare 50+ top insurers to make sure you get the coverage you want, like towing and labor, for the best price.
