Can you imagine a world without roads? A world where you had no structure and no way to no how to go where you want to go? Where would you drive your cars? How would we define directions and make maps? Seems impossible doesn’t it? Now think back to the world when there were barely any cars, and even fewer roads. Dilapidated, broken down roads that were barely suitable for driving your one-of-a-kind, expensive car on. That’s how the world was when AAA formed, and it is thanks to this organization that you now have amazing, wide roads and highways that you don’t think twice about while driving on.
Today’s world is more connected and easily accessible because of the network of roads that has been laid down to allow people to travel with ease. But, to travel, you need a vehicle as well. And that vehicle needs constant care. So, whatever you need to travel safely, AAA can provide.
American Automobile Association, simply known as AAA or Triple A, was formed back in 1902 when the founders of the organization saw the abysmal state of the roads and the sheer lack of highways that were suitable for the cars at that time. Nine different motor clubs joined AAA which then merged with the first American automobile organization, American Motor League, to work to change the situation of roads. They succeeded in drawing up the first AAA road maps in 1905. Ever since then, the organization has worked tirelessly to provide its 55.6 million members with quality services and products that they can rely on. The company does this out of its headquarters in Heathrow, Florida, and provides services to members throughout the United States and Canada.

Requirements for Activating Your AAA Credit Card
Activating your AAA Credit Card is as easy as applying for it; so, it’s pretty easy. The very first thing you have to make sure you have is the credit card itself. If you have the card with you, then you need to make sure that you have a stable internet connection that you can use to open the AAA website and access the credit card portal. But where do you open that website? What device do you use? Well, you can use whichever device you want; a desktop computer, a laptop, a mobile phone or tablet, or any other device you can access the internet on. Finally, since the website and the activation portal is all in English, you should be able to read and understand English a little.
