Ease your mind with travel insurance

Travel insurance can be relatively inexpensive, especially when you consider how much you could lose if something goes wrong before or during your trip. Accidents, medical emergencies, illness—even lost baggage—can quickly turn the vacation of your dreams into a nightmare.

 

Available coverage types include trip cancellation, emergency medical transportation, and trip interruption. 

Take passport photos at a AAA branch

The first step in planning a trip outside the United States is making sure you have a U.S. passport. Apply or renew your U.S. passport through the U.S. Department of State

 

If you need a photo for your passport, you can get a set of two at a AAA branch.2

  • Classic members pay $10 plus tax
  • AAA Plus® members pay $8 plus tax
  • AAA Premier® members receive a set for free
  • Non-members pay $15 plus tax

 

To learn about passport photo requirements, please visit the U.S. Passports & International Travel page.

Prepare yourself before driving abroad

Certain countries don’t recognize the U.S. driver’s license as official identification, so consider getting an International Driving Permit (IDP) before traveling overseas. While an IDP is not required by most foreign governments, it can be a handy document. It includes your name, photo, and driver information translated into 10 languages. AAA is an authorized provider of IDPs.

You can obtain an IDP at most AAA branches by providing:

  • A completed IDP application, which you can download or pick up at most AAA branches.
  • Two original passport photos with your signature on the back of each.
  • A check or money order to cover the $20 application fee, plus tax where applicable
  • A current U.S. driver's license; you must be at least 18 years old.

To apply by mail, send your completed application, fee, and a photocopy of your driver’s license to any full-service AAA branch. Please allow 15 days for delivery. If you’re currently overseas, please send them to:

AAA/IDP
Attn: Mailstop #28 
1000 AAA Drive
Heathrow, FL 32746

Remember that an IDP is valid only when accompanied by your U.S. issued driver’s license. IDPs are valid for one year and are not renewable.

Trip planning tools

We have a variety of resources to help you make the most of your trip. You can visit a AAA branch to pick up our TourBook® guides, AAA Travel Guides, and other materials. And if you’re already on the go, the Auto Club App includes TripTik® Travel Planner, which you can use to get detailed maps, gas prices, and more.  

Save on thrills and chills

Looking to plan your next family fun day or weekend adventure while saving time and money? AAA makes it easy—you just need to decide what, where, and when you want to celebrate.

AAA Diamond Ratings

The AAA Diamond rating system has helped set high industry standards and is a trusted symbol of quality. Each year, AAA's inspectors review more than 28,000 hotels and nearly 30,000 restaurants in North America to make sure they meet AAA’s exacting quality standards.

Auto Club App

Whether you’re planning an extended vacation or a weekend getaway, use the Auto Club App to compare rates, then book your flight, car rental, and a room at a AAA Diamond rated hotel. You’ll also have access to TripTik® Travel Planner, so you can view detailed maps and guides.
