    This is a very basic review that only looks at the entry-level plans when AAA and Good Sam both have multiple size options. For example, my AAA cost is $200 because I paid for the Plus or Premium with 2 additional drivers. That gives a long tow distance (100 miles or so, don’t remember). I’ve towed 25+ miles one time but I don’t want AAA or my location deciding who fixes my car (gamble much?).

    Good Sam has “unlimited tow distance” yes… but only to the nearest “professional” service garage. So if you are rural that may be 20-100 miles but in town it may be only 5 miles. I want to see what garages they select in my area, have to check. You can pay extra for longer distance. But as this covers all 3 drivers in my house for $60-80 so I’d say $120 a year so an extra $50-80 for longer tow and I still save (and save big over time).
