“It depends on which membership option you have.
The Classic plan covers up to four calls a year, including towing up to five miles or to the responding AAA service facility. The Premier plan will give you up to 200 miles.
The tow provider may charge extra for the additional mileage. Check with the tow provider and they will let you know if there will be any excess charges.
Many people also have towing coverage through their car insurance, automotive warranty, or credit card company without realizing it.”
