5 Little Secrets about Your AMA Membership

All of our members have their own reasons for joining AMA. Maybe you joined AMA for our Roadside Assistance. Or maybe for our rewards program, or to get free maps, TourBooks®, and TripTiks® before your vacation. Those are all great reasons but, we think you may be surprised to learn about some of the other services that come with your AMA membership.

  1. Your Membership Covers You, Not Your Vehicle

    Yup, your card covers you around the clock no matter who you are with and across North America. For example, if it’s roadside assistance you need, it doesn’t matter if you are the driver of the vehicle or a passenger in someone else’s car. AMA will come to your rescue. All you will need to do is present your valid membership card together with your driver’s licence when we get there and you’re good to go.
  2. Free Fuel Delivery

    You read that right. If you find yourself in that situation where you looked at your fuel gauge and were positive that you could make it to the next town or neighbourhood (or maybe you just forgot to keep an eye on it), we will personally deliver enough fuel so you can get to the next nearest service station to top’er up. Basic Members will be charged the current pump price for fuel, while all other levels of membership will get their fuel for free.
  3. Trip Collision Reimbursement

    On the road to your travel destination, the last thing that you would expect to happen is to hit or be hit along the way. If you get involved in a motor vehicle collision more than 125 km from your home, you can receive up to $300 (Basic membership) or up to $600 (Plus/Plus RV membership) reimbursement for expenses because of the collision like a car rental, meals, lodging, etc. The coverage is available for a maximum period of 72 hours immediately following the collision, or the release from hospital. Because of your membership, you don’t have to worry about using all of your vacation money to cover expenses.
  4. Group Personal Accident Insurance

    No matter how you choose to get from point A to Point B, your membership includes up to $10,000 in Group Personal Accident Insurance to cover you (including your spouse and dependent children), should something happen on the way to or from your destination. This includes driving or as a passenger in many types of vehicles or while travelling on a scheduled airline, train, bus, taxi, etc. The point is, with AMA along for the ride, you don’t have to worry.
  5. Travel Accident Insurance

    Planning a trip can be a lot of fun yet we often forget to also plan for those unexpected events — cause what’s the fun in that? When you book your flights, train or bus excursions, or a cruise with AMA Travel, you get up to $100,000 (Basic membership) or up to $300,000 (for all other levels of membership) in Travel Accident Insurance. Coverage begins the day you leave until the day you return home. Again, we’ve got your back.
