When I was 19 years old, I moved about 750km away from my hometown. It was quite the journey for me since I only knew one person in the new city but I was ready for the adventure. There were many times that I missed my friends and family back home so I drove back and forth many times. There was one thing that was always in my wallet – especially during winter driving – my CAA Membership.
I’m far from being an expert at changing a tire and since I was often driving alone, I needed to be prepared for the unexpected. Did you know that even if you can maintain control of your vehicle and are an expert at changing tires in -30 degree weather, your vehicle’s components may not be up to the challenge? Another good reason to be prepared with Roadside Services.
My dad has always been my go-to person when I needed auto repairs so I needed to make sure that I had an alternate plan when I lived so far away from him. The Auto Repair services of my CAA Membership gave me the peace of mind that I needed.
A CAA Membership would make an excellent gift for loved ones this holiday season – especially for those moving away from home and starting their own adventures. Here are some interesting facts about CAA Memberships:
