AAA publishes and provides its members the finest national, regional and state road maps available anywhere. These road maps are designed for motorists and are easy to read and follow while you travel. In addition to the most current AAA road maps, you receive, on request with your routing, the exclusive AAA TourBooks for the area you are visiting. In these travel guides, covering the entire United States, Canada and Mexico, you will find descriptions of popular tourist attractions, the hours they are open, fees charged, historic and scenic points of interest and detailed motorist maps of cities. Also included are listings of approved resorts, motels, hotels, bed & breakfasts and restaurants describing standards of facilities and services available. AAA TourBooks® and most Maps are revised and reprinted annually. Similar publications for foreign travel outside the US, Canada and Mexico are available at a nominal fee to clients making their travel arrangements through the Club's AAA Travel Agency.
For each domestic motor trip, in addition to marked AAA maps, the Club prepares a AAA TripTik® - AAA's specialized routing prepared on 3" x 6" strip maps and bound in booklet form. The TripTik® shows you mileage, construction, driving times, gas, food, and lodging accessibility and points of interest along the way. You'll find this mile-by-mile routing the easiest travel aid you've ever used. The appropriate TourBooks®, maps, TripTiks® and special publications, such as AAA Campground directories, will be supplied to you upon request.
