AAA offering free tow this July 4th holiday

AAA Texas is offering its Tipsy Tow service this July 4th celebration at no charge for the first 10 miles. If you are in need of the service, call 1-800-222-4357 or 1-800-AAA-HELP to make tow arrangements to get you and your vehicle home safe. The tow service will be available in San Antonio and statewide beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday till 6 a.m. Friday.

For tow rides over 10 miles, AAA Texas will charge the rate by the tow truck contractor, which is better than getting a DWI or a wreck. You don’t have to be part of AAA to utilize the service. This is for a one-time, one-way ride only.

There are some situations that a tow will not apply for the following:

  • Your vehicle is inoperable
  • Request a tow to another drinking establishment, repair facility, or other than the driver’s home, hotel, AirBnb that the guest is registered at.
  • A request to start up a vehicle, unlock a vehicle, change a flat tire, deliver gas, or other vehicle maintenance.
  • People without cars, using the tow truck as a personal taxi service.
