You can use your Roadside Assistance benefits as soon as your membership payment is processed (usually 24 hours).  Upon joining AAA Northway or adding AAA Plus coverage upon renewal, there will be a 3-day wait period for AAA Plus emergency road service benefits.  Classic emergency road service benefits will be rendered and additional costs will be payable to the service provider.  There is a $25 service fee for members wanting to join and use Roadside Assistance the same day. Call 1-800-AAA-HELP or use the website to request service.
