We are thinking of switching from AAA to Better World Auto Club
because of the heavily pro-car, anti-environmental, anti-
automotive innovation, pro-big car/automaker lobbying efforts
that AAA engages in. Does anyone out there have any real-world
experience with Better World . . . like, have you had to get a
tire changed or towed? How was the service? I'd love to hear
I switched to Better World Auto club a year or so ago for exactly
the reasons you listed, and have not regretted it. I needed road
service at least once since I switched, and the service was no
different in quality, timeliness, etc., than AAA's service. The
one thing I do miss is the ability to drop by the AAA office and
pick up maps at will, but I have requested maps over the Better
World website and received them promptly. The auto insurance I
purchased through them is less expensive than AAA's was. Haven't
had to make a claim against it yet, so can't comment on that.
We tried Better World Club and dropped it when my husband tried
to get a help (I forget what for) when he was driving a friend's
car. AAA will tow you if you're a member even if you're not
driving your own car, but apparently the guy who arrived at the
scene said that Better World could not help out. When I called
to drop the policy, they insisted that that's not the case, but
we dropped it anyway...
