A document with the word caa on it.

Picture this.

It’s (finally) the weekend. You’re awake before everyone else and decide to take a relaxing drive out to a local farmers market to grab some fresh eggs and berries. You’ll be home before anyone wakes up and those fresh berries will go great with this morning’s breakfast.

You open the moon roof and enjoy a relaxing drive to the market, pick up your items, are ready to head home and… You’ve locked your keys in the car.

Sound familiar?

It happens. Trust us. With over 115 years providing roadside assistance to Ontarians, we’ve seen it all so don’t beat yourself up about it.

Just give us a call and we’ll be there as soon as possible to help you get back into your vehicle so you can be on your way.

Added bonus: If your keys are lost, broken, or we’re unable to gain access, we’ll provide up to $50 for locksmith service (where available) for Basic Members and up to $100 for Plus and Premier Members.

Now, let say you’ve GOT your keys but… your car won’t start.

While it might be tempting to hang out at the farmers market all day, you’ve got breakfast to prepare, remember? So just give us a call.

If your battery won’t turn over, we’ll test it on the spot to see if you need a boost or a replacement (we’re the only mobile service that will do all this)1.  And if a new battery is what you need, you’ll receive Member-exclusive pricing on our CAA Premium Battery, which comes with a six-year warranty!

If you’re out of gas, we’ll provide you with enough to get you to the nearest gas station or tow you there.2 Basic Members will be charged the current pump price for the gasoline. For Plus and Premier Members, there is no charge!

Now, imagine one more scenario.

We won’t have many more warm, sunny days this year, so let’s say you decided to bike out to the farmers market instead. It’s a beautiful ride and you wonder to yourself, “Why don’t I do this more often”?

Your fresh items are safely stowed in your carrier, you’re about to push off when you discover… you’ve got a flat tire.

It is at this point that you may start to wonder why you bothered to get up so early in the first place!

But then you remember that, not only is your vehicle covered by CAA, but you can also take advantage of CAA’s Bike Assist.

If your bike breaks down and you can’t fix it, just give us a call and we’ll give you a helping hand. If we’re unable to fix what’s wrong on the spot, we’ll give you (and your bike) a lift back to where you need to go.

Home sweet home.

You made it! Breakfast was a huge success and you’re rewarded with lots of hugs and appreciation from your family. And boy are you thankful you’re a CAA Member!

But the events of the morning have left you thinking that maybe it’s time for some new wheels. Or perhaps just an expert opinion on what repairs, if any, you need to make to your vehicle.

Get an expert opinion.

CAA can help you with these pressing questions as well. Our Consumer and Technical Services Team (CATS) offers free, unbiased expert advice on everything automotive, from buying and selling to repairs and car care. Just give them a call at 1-866-464-6448 or email: cats@caasco.ca with all your questions.

We’ve had some fun outlining a few hypotheticals situations (and how CAA is always just a phone call away) but like we said, these kind of events can (and do) happen every day.

Bottom line – having a CAA Membership helps ensure that you’ll be back on the road in no time.

Not a Member? Ride with peace of mind.
