Part of a nationwide AAA initiative called Easy Access, the Auto Club's TripTik travel planner service will be made available online to non-members at no charge, according to a AAA press release.
AAA recently added location and fuel price data for almost 100,000 U.S. gas stations to its popular TripTik travel planner. Locations are updated weekly and multiple-grade fuel prices are updated four times daily.
In addition to gas stations, the new AAA map/planning tool features more than 400,000 "points of interest" which include lodgings, restaurants, events and attractions.
Travelers can click on hotel and restaurant icons to find AAA ratings, pricing levels and contact information. Then travelers can book reservations at AAA.com by clicking on the icon and following the simple reservation instructions.
Information on local attractions, Hertz car rental locations, retail establishments that offer AAA discounts and AAA-approved auto repair facilities is also available.
