A woman travelling home to Pretoria from her office in Sandton suffers a mechanical breakdown. Fortunately, she is an AA Advantage Plus Member and does not hesitate to contact 0861 000 234. She mentions that she is travelling alone late at night and quite understandably does not feel safe. Roadside security is immediately dispatched to wait with her until the AA patrolman arrives (AA Stand By You). Because we don't just send a tow truck driver, we send a trained technician; we are able to get her car going again without having to tow it. In less than one hour we are able to get this AA Member safely on her
way again.

With a SINGLE call-out this Member has saved R1 373, covering almost the entire cost of her annual AA Advantage Plus Membership! Plus she still has 4 call-outs remaining in her Membership year.

* Roadside security calculated as 3-month average of actual case cost and call-out and towing rates calculated as AA 2012 pricing schedule.
