An AARP card is a membership card issued by the organization formerly known as the American Association of Retired Persons. For a full list of the benefits of being a member, the organization's website has a free copy of the AARP Member Benefits Guide available for download, as of April 2015.
Membership comes with discounts and travel benefits. It offers benefits when traveling by air and rail transport modes like the Grand Canyon Railway and British Airways. For car and truck rentals, the membership card affords members benefits at Avis Rent A Car, Budget Rent A Car, Zipcar and Budget Truck Rental. Members will find discounts at hotels and resorts, such as Comfort Inn, Days Inn, Doubletree by Hilton, Grand Hyatt Hotels and the Sheraton Hotel and Resorts.
Shoppers will find shopping discounts at places, such as the UPS Store, and on merchandise, such as the Amazon Kindle. Being a member also means receiving benefits on health products, insurance and financial goods and services, such as the Petplan USA pet insurance, AARP Dental Insurance Plan, AARP MyVision Care, AARP Hearing Care Program and AARP prescription and vision discounts. Moreover, AARP The Magazine, AARP Bulletin and other publications, events, programs and resources are available to individuals who join the AARP.
