CAA offers a number of unique services that are intended to protect CAA Members from unexpected difficulties associated with travelling by car.
If you're in a collision more than 200 kilometres from your home and your vehicle still cannot be driven safely up to 72 hours after the collision is reported, CAA will reimburse you up to $300 (up to $500 for CAA Plus Members) to be used for ONE of the following:
Local lodging and meals: or
commercial rental car: or
commercial transportation via airline, train, or bus to your original destination or back home
To be eligible for a reimbursement, submit a copy of the police accident report and the original receipts for your expenditures to your local CAA Store within 60 days of the accident.
If CAA/ AAA service is not available, the Member may make alternate arrangements to pay for the services. Submit the original, legitimate business invoice bearing the Member's name to your home CAA Club within 30 days from date of service.
Reimbursement will be based on the prevailing commercial rates for the area where the vehicle was disabled. Similarly, if CAA/AAA service was available but alternate service was obtained, the reimbursement will be based on the CAA/AAA contract rate for the area of the breakdown.
Full reimbursement will be provided for all eligible services where CAA/AAA contractor service is legally restricted (such as toll roads and limited access highways)
Remember to call CAA/AAA first. If CAA/AAA services are available but not used, reimbursement will be made at the CAA/AAA Contractor rate.
