Money Back Guarantee

There is a money-back guarantee if you are not satisfied with our services during the first 30 days after joining CAA Niagara or renewing your Membership. All requests must be made in writing and include your Membership card. Refunds will not be granted if emergency roadside service has been used during the first 30 days of Membership. A $20 administration fee applies and the enrollment fee is non-refundable. Remnant portions of an active Membership are non-refundable, but they are fully transferable to a non-Member resident of the Niagara region.


Provision of Service

CAA Everyday and Basic® Emergency Roadside Service benefits become active 24 hours after joining and payment has been applied. All other Member Benefits become available immediately.

CAA Plus®/Plus RV® and Premier®/Premier RV® roadside assistance benefits become active 7 days after joining or 48 hours after upgrading, and payment has been applied. To receive immediate roadside assistance, up to Basic coverage, an additional cost of $50 plus tax will be required at the time of Membership purchase. For all Membership levels Member Benefits excluding Emergency Roadside Service are available immediately.

If on your computer you elect to use the feature whereby the CAA Website keeps you signed in for two weeks, any users of the computer will be signed in to your CAA account if they use the CAA Website during this time. It is recommended that you do not select this option if using a shared or public computer.

CAA roadside assistance (also referred to herein as Emergency Roadside Service, or ERS) is provided to CAA Members upon presentation of their valid CAA Membership card. If a Member cannot produce their CAA Membership card or digital Membership card through the CAA Mobile App, together with a piece of government-issued photo ID, service may be downgraded or refused. Valid photo ID includes an Ontario's Driver's License, Canadian Passport, Canadian Citizenship Card, Canadian Permanent Resident Card, and Canadian Armed Forces Identification Card. This applies to roadside assistance for all vehicles, including RVs, trailers, bicycles and motorcycles. We put the safety of our Members first and will not leave you stranded. Membership benefits (including that of an Associate Member) are not transferable; therefore, service will not be provided if the vehicle and/or Membership card is in the possession of an individual who is not the named Member on the card. A CAA Membership is personal: it covers the individual person, and not specific vehicles.

Each Membership type (Everyday, Basic, Plus and Premier) has a set number of roadside assistance service calls per Membership year. Service calls cannot be shared or carried over to the next Membership year. Once the number of service calls has been exceeded, CAA NIAGARA will continue to facilitate the services described below; however, any services in excess of the roadside assistance maximums will be subject to service provider fees that are due at the time of service.

Some roadside assistance calls may require two trucks to complete the service, for example: Plus winches, motorcycle tows where help is needed to load the vehicle, calls requiring a safety blocker, and some underground tows or RV tows for a vehicle and trailer. Two trucks will count as two service calls. In situations with a vehicle and trailer, or where two vehicles are being serviced, each vehicle will count as one call even if one truck is used. Premier and Premier RV Members have access to one 500 kilometre tow. In a situation where towing service is needed for both a camping trailer and the vehicle, one vehicle can be covered for 500 kilometres and the other for 250 kilometres. For all Membership levels, any service calls not covered by the Membership must be paid for, by the requesting Member, at the time of service.

Extraction services that require two trucks also count as two calls. Members who have used the maximum number of entitled service calls for their Membership year are not eligible for reimbursements. Full roadside assistance benefits are reinstated upon the start of a new Membership year, which is the day the following the Membership renewal/expiry date.

Membership covers select vehicles only. An Everyday Membership covers bicycles. A Basic Membership covers bicycles and valid licensed cars, and unmodified and unloaded pickups and passenger vans. A CAA Plus and Premier Membership covers bicycles, valid licensed cars, and unmodified and unloaded pickups, vans and motorcycles. Dual-wheel trucks are eligible for all services except Flat-Tire service. All Membership levels cover service calls for rented passenger cars and small unloaded vans.

RV Coverage

CAA Plus RV and CAA Premier RV service covers roadworthy motorhomes, campers, fifth-wheel trailers, and the following types of unloaded trailers: travel and utility. As well as the following types of loaded and unloaded trailers: snowmobile, ATV, personal watercraft, and boat (as long as the boat itself is no more than 16ft in length). Service limitations may apply when travelling in the U.S. Service acquired in the U.S. may be paid for and consideration for reimbursement can be sought from CAA NIAGARA. The initial call must be placed with AAA in order to register the incident. RV coverage is only available as an annual payment and is charged in full upon the first payment of the year. RV Memberships cannot be prorated, and restrictions apply for refund eligibility.

Right to Refuse Service

CAA NIAGARA reserves the right to refuse service or impose a surcharge, as well as to downgrade, cancel, revoke, terminate, or not renew a CAA Membership, for any reason; including (but not limited to) harassment of CAA staff and personnel, misuse, or abuse of services, providing inaccurate or deliberately misleading information, and failure to comply with Member responsibilities as outlined in these terms and conditions.

Scope of Service

Towing Benefits

Towing will be provided if attempts to make a vehicle safely operable at the roadside/location have been unsuccessful. Flatbeds or dollies will be used only when required as per the CAA/AAA towing guide. Towing will be provided within allotted Membership coverage maximum kilometres in CAA NIAGARA territory in any direction from the point of disablement to the repair facility of a Member’s choice.

Everyday Members receive up to one (1) roadside assistance calls per Membership year towards a bicycle tow up to 10km. Basic Members receive up to five (5) roadside assistance calls per Membership year (these can be used for tows up to 10km). Plus Members receive five roadside assistance calls per Membership year (4 Calls up to 250km and 1 call up to 10km) Premier Members receive up to five (5) roadside assistance calls per Membership year (one 500km tow, three 250km tows and one 10km tow) Towing beyond this set amount will be at the Member’s own expense. A charge per kilometre will be applied by the service facility for any additional mileage that exceeds a Member’s coverage. Service coverage varies by territory.

CAA NIAGARA reserves the right to determine in its sole discretion the towing equipment required to provide Emergency Roadside Service and the towing procedures to be followed. Members may not request flatbed service trucks. Some exceptions apply. CAA will always send a service vehicle appropriate to the situation, as per the AAA towing manual. If a Member insists on the use of a flatbed despite the recommendation of CAA, the Member will be charged a flatbed fee for the service.


If CAA has confirmed it is not able to provide immediate roadside assistance to a Member, the Member may make reasonable arrangements to pay for comparable roadside services. CAA shall consider reimbursement to the Member upon receipt of the original invoice (which must include the amount paid, the amount of any applicable taxes, the business name and logo/mark, and the Member’s name. This must be submitted to the Member’s CAA Club within 30 days from the date that the roadside assistance was made.

To avoid a roadside service call being charged to your Membership file, you may choose to submit towing costs incurred as a result of a motor vehicle accident, including collision, fire or theft, to your insurance company as part of your insurance claim. Similarly, you may submit towing costs to the vehicle's warrantor should they be incurred as a result of the failure of warranty repairs.

For areas outside of CAA NIAGARA territory, CAA Plus and Premier Memberships may provide a set number of kilometres of towing with the balance being charged to the Member. The Member may in turn request consideration of reimbursement from CAA NIAGARA for the balance; however, CAA does not guarantee reimbursement in all cases.

Bike Assist

Any Bike Assist service will count as one roadside assistance call during a Membership year. Service is based on seasonal availability and will be provided to cyclists at the nearest road/address of the breakdown location, where there is permitted vehicle access. If a roadside repair cannot be completed, CAA will arrange to transport the Member and their bicycle, subject to your towing limits based on Membership type. Service is available in Canada only for all Membership levels that offer roadside assistance. CAA Everyday Members receive one Bike Assist call, with towing up to 10km.

Extrication/Winching Service

A vehicle will be extricated when it can be safely reached from a normally travelled or established thoroughfare. If special equipment, additional manpower or vehicles are required, the associated costs may be at the Member’s expense. Only Plus/Plus RV and Premier/Premier RV Membership levels are automatically covered for an additional service vehicle and service provider for up to one hour of extrication service at the scene.

Fuel Delivery

A limited supply of gasoline ($5.00), will be delivered to the Member’s disabled vehicle. CAA Basic Members will be charged the fuel pump price and must pay the tow driver upon delivery. No charge for CAA Plus/RV and CAA Premier/RV Membership levels, however, this does count as a Plus/Premier level service call. Coverage excludes diesel/propane. Each service counts as one of the allotted roadside assistance calls during a Membership year. High-octane fuel cannot be guaranteed. Requirements for diesel fuel will necessitate a tow to the nearest station selling that fuel.


If a Member’s keys are locked inside a vehicle, a CAA driver will be dispatched to gain entry. If keys are lost, broken or the driver cannot gain entrance to the vehicle, CAA will provide coverage for automotive locksmith services up to $50 for Basic Memberships and up to $100 for Plus/RV and Premier/RV Memberships. Coverage is for the primary, starter key only and does not include a spare key or a key to gain entry into the residential door of a motorhome. Locksmith services cannot be used to replace a backup or “second set” of keys. Each service call counts as one of the allotted roadside assistance calls during the Membership year. If your vehicle cannot be made operable, it will be towed (in addition to, or instead of, the $50 or $100 locksmith service, if necessary), as per the scope of towing benefits.

Flat Tire

A flat tire will be repaired when possible or replaced with the Member’s inflated and mounted spare tire. If no spare tire is available, the vehicle will be towed to the nearest repair facility or in accordance with the Membership type’s towing limitations. Service does not include repairs, additional trips to deliver a repaired tire, installation or removal of tire chains, mounting, dismounting or shifting of tires, seasonal tire change, and a tire change on an oversized tire, or tires on some trucks/vans based on size. In the case of vans and pick up trucks, CAA may determine to tow the vehicle to a garage of the Member's choice.

Flat Tire Service & Repair When circumstances allow, CAA can provide a temporary tire repair on the spot to get you and your family on the go. When we can’t repair your tire, and your vehicle’s spare tire is inflated and serviceable, the tire will be installed to replace your flat tire. If no inflated spare tire is available, or if your wheel has more than 6 lug nuts, your vehicle will be towed in accordance with your level of membership.

A tow will not be provided if there is a spare tire in good working order. To avoid damage, certain vehicles will be required to tow to a garage as proper installation requires that the wheel lug torque be set to the recommended specification for the Member’s vehicle. Dual-wheel vehicles needing service on an inside tire require a licensed specialist. Members may be required to obtain their own tire service and can pursue consideration for reimbursement from CAA NIAGARA. Tow truck drivers reserve the right to decline service due to size/condition of a tire. CAA will refer the Member to a contractor that is able to service the vehicle – which may be at the Member’s expense.


Battery replacements are subject to specific locations and weather-dependent conditions. Mobile Battery Service is suspended if the weather reaches an ambient temperature of -20 degrees Celsius and below. However, CAA will be able to boost or tow your vehicle during that time. In a situation where different weather resources have a difference in temperature, CAA NIAGARA will make the final determination. Battery testing and boosting counts as one of the allotted roadside assistance calls during a Membership year, except for when a battery is purchased from CAA at the time of service. CAA will not install a non-CAA branded battery.

Some vehicles cannot be serviced due to the location of the battery in the vehicle. If, after inspection, the service call does not involve a battery service and results in a towing service, the service will count as a second service call.

To learn more about at-home battery testing, including available locations, please visit caaniagara.ca/battery

Service Limitation

If your vehicle cannot be made operable, CAA will assist you in finding the nearest operating place of repair. If a repair facility cannot be located, CAA NIAGARA will assist you in obtaining lodging or alternative transportation, which will be at your own expense. Our goal is to get your vehicle operating under its own power. Towing or fuel will only be provided if we are not successful. For the protection of our Members, services cannot be provided to an unattended vehicle. The CAA Member, not a designate, must be present at the time roadside service is provided.

CAA reserves the right to review and adjust Memberships annually, based on costs associated with roadside assistance. CAA also reserves the right to limit or suspend services during extreme weather events, civil disturbances and other unforeseen large scale disruptions; to downgrade a Membership service level; or to cancel a Membership if a review of Membership usage deems CAA services are being misused. CAA also reserves the right to change benefits and policies regarding Memberships.

In fairness to all Members, roadside assistance is not to be used as a substitute for proper vehicle maintenance. CAA NIAGARA has set reasonable limitations and regulations in the interest of all Members regarding the number of roadside assistance calls per Membership year. CAA Membership dues pay for all of CAA’s services.

All discounts, programs and benefits are subject to change without notice. It is the responsibility of the Member to adhere to the terms and conditions of a CAA Membership. CAA Membership dues are adjusted annually to account for the cost of providing roadside assistance and other CAA services.

  • Loaded vehicles are not eligible for service. We may ask you to unload your vehicle or trailer prior to providing service.
  • If a second service driver is required, the service will count as two service calls. This includes (but is not limited to) a safety blocker, second winch truck, help loading a vehicle, and some tows out of an underground facility.

In most areas, roadside assistance facilities are independent businesses and are not employees of CAA or its affiliates. CAA will help mediate between the Member and contractor should any vehicle damage complaints or repair work arise as a result of roadside assistance being provided by the contractor. If your vehicle cannot be made operable by providing services as listed, CAA will assist you in finding the nearest operating place of repair.
  • Charges for services that exceed the benefits listed will be at the prevailing hourly service call rate or mileage rate of the region where the service is provided. Rules and privileges of ERS are subject to change without notice. Members cannot use a second road service call to extend their towing distance for the same breakdown event.
  • Motorcycles are not covered under a Basic Membership. Motorcycles with or without a sidecar are covered under CAA Plus® and Premier® coverage.

The following terms and conditions apply, in addition to the Terms of Use (provided by each Supplier), to all products, services and information provided by CAA Niagara Travel Inc., including CAA Vacations ("CAA Travel").

CAA Travel is Agent Only - Suppliers Ultimately Responsible

CAA Travel acts only as an agent for airlines, hotels, railroads, cruise lines, rental car companies, travel insurance companies and other providers of accommodation, transportation, tour and other services (the "Suppliers"). All products and services provided by the Suppliers are subject to the terms and conditions established by the Suppliers and may be changed without notice at any time. To the extent reasonably possible, CAA Travel will assist the Customer in dealing with Suppliers, but the ultimate responsibility for Supplier's products and services is with the Supplier and beyond CAA Travel's control.

Applicable Terms

In addition to the terms and conditions contained herein, the Customer agrees to all applicable terms and conditions of any particular products or services. By accepting receipt of any coupons, exchange orders, receipts, contracts, tickets, the Customer understands and accepts the applicable terms and conditions. CAA Travel selects the Suppliers based primarily on the value they will provide to Customers, but cannot control the Suppliers' terms and conditions beyond the initial selection process.

No Warranties

CAA Travel provides Suppliers' products and services on an "as is" and "as available" basis. CAA Travel makes efforts to ensure that the products and services offered by the Suppliers are consistent with the descriptions, photographs, illustrations and pictures provided, however, the descriptions, photographs, illustrations and pictures do not in any way whatsoever constitute a representation, warranty or guarantee that products and services offered are as described or otherwise depicted.

CAA Travel and the Suppliers reserve the right, in their sole discretion, to substitute products or services of equal or greater value in the event that any product or service is unavailable for any reason whatsoever. The Customer agrees that any such substitution will be deemed to be the full and complete compensation and CAA Travel will bear no other liability resulting from the unavailability of products or services.

Customer Responsibility / No Advice Obligation

When the Customer books and purchases a trip on the CAA website, CAA Travel cannot evaluate the Customer's needs or requests. As a consequence, CAA Travel has no obligation to advise the Customer. The Customer is the only one responsible for choosing the trip and or property whose presentation and description belong exclusively to the Suppliers.

CAA Travel shall not be held responsible for the accuracy of the information supplied by the Suppliers. If the Customer wishes to be given advice regarding his or her choice, he or she may contact CAA Travel consultants by phone. CAA Travel will then answer any questions Customers may have and assist with any specific travel concerns brought to our attention.

CAA Travel and its affiliates, agents, representatives and employees assume no responsibility and shall not be liable for any loss or damages, to person or property, howsoever caused except as a result of the negligence of CAA Travel and its affiliates, agents or employees in performing its obligations as travel agent.

Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, CAA Travel and its affiliates, agents, employees and representatives assume no responsibility and shall not be liable for any loss or damages arising from:

  • Insufficient or unacceptable passport, visa and other travel documentation;
  • Denial of entry or the detention or delay caused by any governmental authority;
  • Customer's failure to observe and comply with all rules, regulations and requirements of Suppliers, including without limitation those relating to smoking; Customer's or Suppliers' failure to comply with or changes to any government law or regulation;
  • Customer's failure to provide accurate personal information or correct travel requirements at the time of booking (eg. Name as it appears on travel documents, correct travel dates, etc.)
  • Weather, fires, quarantines or other public health advisories, or other natural or national disasters;
  • Strikes, lock-outs or bankruptcies relating to or disrupting the product or service delivery of any Supplier;
  • Wars, riots, safety advisories or other civil unrest; any other cause whatsoever beyond the reasonable control of CAA Travel.

Currency, Taxes and Additional Charges

All prices, rates and fares are in Canadian currency, unless otherwise expressly stated, are in effect at the time of publication only and are subject to change without notice. CAA Travel reserves the right to change any price, rate or fare without notice at any time prior to date of travel, stay, attendance or use, as the case may be, due to changes in currency exchange rates, applicable tariffs, taxes, or surcharges which may be imposed by the Suppliers.

Unless otherwise expressly stated, all prices, rates and fares exclude all applicable sales taxes, tariffs, excise, hotel, transportation, airport, fuel and any other taxes or surcharges which may be imposed by the Suppliers. Upon the request of CAA Travel, all customers agree to provide a duly signed credit card authorization for any credit card purchase(s).
