Good Sam RV Emergency Road Service – RV ERS – has teamed with American Express to provide fee-free American Express Travelers Cheques to its members, according to Elizabeth Eversen, marketing director for Good Sam RV ERS.
American Express Travelers Cheques no longer are available at most AAA offices, so Good Sam RV ERS membership offers an opportunity to get the checks in a fast and secure way free of charge, Eversen said.
“This is a great travel benefit for our current and future members,” she said.
Good Sam RV ERS provides 24/7 protection for all household vehicles, in addition to RVs. Benefits include unlimited roadside rescue service, unlimited mileage emergency towing service, lock-out service and travel delay assistance.
Meanwhile, Good Sam RV ERS members who buy American Express Travelers Cheques also get credit-card and passport replacement assistance, even if the credit cards are from another financial institution.
And travelers checks are safer than cash because they can be replaced if lost of stolen, usually within 24 hours.
Good Sam is a unit of Affinity Group Inc., as is TL Enterprises Inc., publisher of RV Business and RVBUSINESS.COM.
