Additional roadside assistance generally offered by AAA includes extrication and winching, fuel delivery service, vehicle lock-out service, tire service and one-day free car rental, as detailed by AAA. Roadside assistance is limited to four free service calls per year for members, after which AAA charges for each roadside assistance call.

Roadside assistance for batteries includes a battery boost to start the vehicle, on-site battery testing and possibly on-site installation of a replacement battery. AAA discounts the price of the replacement battery. Vehicles that have veered off the road are covered by the winching and extrication portion of AAA roadside assistance. The fuel delivery service provides fuel to stranded drivers either at the current pump rate or for free for those with premium membership plans.

The tire service portion of AAA roadside assistance assists drivers with blowouts and flat tires, installing a spare when possible or providing towing service. Depending on the membership plan, towing assistance may take the vehicle to the service provider repair shop or to any spot within a specified radius. Some towing calls entitle the member to a free one-day rental car.
