CAA Launches Comprehensive Smartphone App

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 24, 2011) - For the first time, Canadians will be able to request roadside assistance, search for exclusive Member savings, plan a trip with TripTik®, and more, using the new all-in-one smartphone app from the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA).

Launched today, the app is available for Blackberry, iPhone, and Android. It's free to download, straightforward to use, available in French and English, and is also accessible for non-Members.

"Now everyone can easily access their favourite CAA services all in one place," said Lionel Aucoin, CAA Managing Director, E-Business. "Whether they're looking for a place to eat locally, lodging and attractions at their next destination, or require roadside assistance, this new app is the solution."

The CAA smartphone app allows users to easily find Member exclusive savings at over 100,000 partner locations in Canada and the United States. In addition, users can request CAA Roadside Assistance without placing a call, access insurance and automotive information, obtain instant battery quotes, and locate CAA-approved auto repair centres. Members and non-Members can also use the app to find CAA/AAA approved lodging, restaurants, events, attractions, and campgrounds.

Once downloaded, users are able to select their preferred language of communication, and enter either their membership number, or for non-members, a valid Canadian postal code. This information allows the app to deliver region-specific content to each user.
