How does AAA home insurance work?
AAA operates on the local scene, which means that home coverage and offerings might be different based on your local club. For the Auto Club South and Auto Club of Southern California Insurance Group, your policy has two package options, basic or premium coverage.
Find discounts and optional coverage available from your local club, like green upgrades or landscaping coverage. Note that you have to be a AAA member to apply for home insurance, and not every club offers home insurance directly. If AAA can’t offer you a policy directly, they will connect you with a partner insurer, much like a broker.
What home insurance coverage does AAA offer?
AAA offers guaranteed replacement for your home, water heater or air conditioner breakdowns, eco-friendly upgrades and even special home business protection.
Depending on your location, choose coverage that includes:
Liability. Basic coverage for medical bills and court fees if a visitor gets injured on your property.
Dwelling. Guard your living space from accidents and weather damage.
Guaranteed replacement cost. Repair or replace your home, no matter the cost of damage.
Extended replacement cost. Bolster policy maximums with an extra 25% for home repairs or replacement.
Replacement cost for personal property. Replace personal items damaged in a covered event, as long as those items are listed on your policy.
Valuable personal property. Cover valuable belongings like musical instruments, silverware or sports equipment.
Expanded personal property. Mix in protection for jewelry, watches or expensive furs.
Service lines. Cover your below-ground plumbing, water or power lines.

Pros and cons of AAA home insurance
Standout coverage options. Coverage for green upgrades, landscaping, home systems breakdowns and even home hosting means customers have a full range of options you won’t find with every insurer.
Guaranteed replacement cost in California. This feature guarantees your home’s protection without limits, another feature not offered by every insurer.
High customer ratings. J.D. Power consistently gives AAA home insurance high marks, and customer reviews also give high praise.
Member benefits. AAA offers unique discounts and perks on shopping and travel available for members alongside its low-cost insurance.
Claim-free cashback. Earn money or renewal credit for going without a claim, up to $50 per term.
Offerings differ by location. Because AAA clubs are managed on a local level, coverage, perks and discounts for home policies are different based on your area. You might have to call to find out what options are available in your state.
Experience varies. Similar to above, your customer experience can differ from club to club as well.
Not all states served. Some AAA clubs don’t offer AAA home insurance directly, instead they offer a quote through partner companies.
