Pro­vid­ing dis­count­ed attrac­tion tick­ets is one of the great­est val­ue propo­si­tions we offer to our AAA mem­bers. Accesso’s solu­tion will allow us to deliv­er print-at-home tick­ets to our mem­bers’ homes 24 hours a day, sev­en days a week,” Jen­nifer But­ler, AAA Man­ag­ing Direc­tor, Busi­ness Devel­op­ment, The Auto Club Group.

We are very excit­ed about the oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with the most trust­ed brand in trav­el,” said Steve Brown, acces­so Chief Oper­at­ing Offi­cer. Our online tool will seam­less­ly step AAA mem­bers through the wide range of tick­et options and spe­cial offers from some of the largest attrac­tions in Cen­tral Flori­da while enhanc­ing the club’s abil­i­ty to sell and mar­ket attrac­tion tick­ets to its members.” 

But­ler added that accesso’s tick­et­ing plat­form will also dri­ve effi­cien­cies at the Club’s branch locations. 

A num­ber of our mem­bers still pre­fer to vis­it our branch­es for trav­el plan­ning assis­tance, and by incor­po­rat­ing this plat­form into our branch­es, our trav­el coun­selors will be able to offer enhanced ser­vice to our mem­bers when they vis­it us in-per­son as well,” said Butler. 

The new online attrac­tions tick­et­ing por­tal for mem­bers is cur­rent­ly avail­able for ACG mem­bers in Flori­da, Geor­gia, Mid­dle and West Ten­nessee, Puer­to Rico, and the U.S. Vir­gin Islands, and then in 2014 roll out to the club’s North Region: Iowa, Michi­gan, Nebras­ka, North Dako­ta, Wis­con­sin; most of Illi­nois, Min­neso­ta; and a por­tion of Indiana.
