Road/Air vs. Cruise travel

Status: Acknowledged
by SAM on ‎12-22-2010 01:37 PM

The AAA magazine seems to be heavily devoted to Cruise travel.  I am someone who has absolutely no desire to take a cruise.  I would appreciate more articles devoted to road travel to visit places within the AAA Club South area.

Hi, Sam, I'm working on a story like that right now. I'll make sure to remind myself, and the other editors of Going Places, to try to keep our editiorial varied so that there's something for everyone. Thanks for your readership! Stephen

I'm just thinking about picking my jaw up off the floor here shortly as it fell there upon seeing the prices & "discounts" we are offered via Hertz for car rental.  The price I was quoted with the AAA member discount was TWICE as much as other car rental agencies WITHOUT getting a discount.  Does this make any sense to anyone because, for the life of me, I cannot find the logic.  I have had great customer service from at least 3 other rental agencies in the past so I'm really not willing to hear that its the service.  Even if it were, I would take a 50% cost reduction in exchange for no one smiling at me or buttering me up at all.  The cars they rent are the same cars, no better, no worse.  So, I give - what is it that makes them worth TWICE the cost?  Furthermore, can AAA not partner with a more reasonably priced rental agency for us??

AAA credit cards

AAA is one of the premier travel services, perhaps the largest and best known. AAA also stresses and excells at service to members. It would seem, therefore, that a credit card bearing the AAA logo would emphasize features with the traveller in mind. However, at least on my card, there is a 2% foreign transaction fee. This adds up pretty fast and is not on all credit cards. AAA should look to an agreement eliminating foreign transaction fees and making sure that their sponsored cards are geared as much as possible to the traveller/consumer. Thank you.

I would love to see AAA add Etsy.com to their list of partners so that members can earn AAA dollars while supporting small businesses, especially during Black Friday.  Thank you!

Flight Discounting

Status: Acknowledged

It is very discouraging using not only AAA to find a less expansive flight but all the discount sites that quote you boldly their price, then start telling you the actual price you will pay.  Example:  Flight  offerd at $300 - but then you have add-ons which brings the total to $700.  If you follow down the list of flight prices you notice that as you get nearer to the $700 Actual Price these add-ons become lower.   Why are these games played?  Why not just post the actual price?  I would prefer AAA post the actual price to be paid with another section showing the savings by using AAA, otherwise why have it if it just follows the same game as Orbitz or Priceline, etc.  ????  This also applies to the other supposed travel discounts offered by AAA. 

 

Just a thought.

Coffee Topic On Magellan GPS

Status: Acknowledged

Why is there no Dunkin Donuts on the search feature on the mobile GPS for Magellan. I have one that is  .5 miles from my house but it does not list any nearby except 20 miles away.. The Tourbook Feature is installed and is not listed. Why are you omitting Dunkin Donuts and have all kinds of Starbucks in your Tourbook. Seems like you are discriminating against Dunkin Donuts. Why?

Status: Acknowledged
That is very odd. Unfortunately, I do not know why the Dunkin Donuts store near your house would not show up in your search results. I will share the issue and post again when we figure out the search issue. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.
