The Claim Game

I checked out my AAA Trip Interruption insurance, and it's good for up to $750 including hotel stay and replacement transportation. This means that I should be able to claim for the roughly $700 in U-Haul truck rental and for one of the two hotel nights in Elko, which would be very good. Obviously it doesn't pay for the vehicle repairs, but that didn't cost as much as I expected, for which I'm grateful.

The bills (including the one from the auto repair shop to prove that we broke down) are at home, so I won't be able to file the claim until I get home, but I started the process this week and got an initial claim number.

Assuming this works out, it will be the third time I've make a trip-interruption insurance claim. My AAA Plus membership is very much worth what I pay for it. I've never totaled it up, but between those claims and the roadside assistance (such as that tow from Battle Mountain to Elko that would have cost around $400 by itself), I would not be surprised if I've paid significantly less in membership dues than I've received in benefits. Good job AAA!
