Will AAA allow me to schedule a tow for a future date?

I don't have time to have my car towed today, but will AAA let me schedule a tow a few days from now? My car broke down while I was leaving my parent's house today. They live on a private country road, so I know it is safe for a few days.

AAA towing membership is usually reserved for emergency use only.
Depending on your region, there can be times that AAA will approve a next-day tow, but these are few and far between. Since scheduling a tow is not aligned with their policy, you wouldn’t want to rely on it as an option.
Your best bet is to call AAA on the day you have availability to wait for the tow. You may also consider the towing and labor coverage with your car insurance policy and see if they will allow you to schedule a tow.”
