Jamaica Automobile Association (JAA) Advance cardholders can now receive the full benefits of JAA membership, says Gheildon Wright, JAA manager, subscription sales and services.

This comes as a result of the merger of JAA Advance Card fleet management services with the roadside assistance and other services offered by the JAA, Wright explained. By providing for JAA Advance membership, the aim is to create a comprehensive menu of services tailored to suit individual client needs.

“We are providing all the benefits, which JAA members enjoy, to our JAA Advance Card clients,” Wright said. “Therefore, the JAA member service selection can be customised for JAA Advance cardholders and delivered at discounted rates.”

Widely known for its roadside assistance service, the JAA began offerring the use of the JAA Advance Card following its merger in 2016 with another JN Group subsidiary, Manufacturers' Credit & Information Services (MCIS), which then offered the MCIS Advance Card vehicle expense management service.

“In addition to our roadside assistance, the JAA does so much more,” Wright said. “We offer chauffeur services; we will take your vehicle from one point to another, as you require; and we will also do your fitness and registration document renewal.”

Along with its driving academy, the largest Jamaican automobile club also offers airport transfer service, shuttle bus service, towing, and the trucking of goods.

“For JAA Advance Members, 'customisability' is the name of the game,” Wright said. “You are able to choose just what is it that you need.”

Wright was updating JAA clients about recent company developments, at a function, which was held at the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel in St Andrew recently.

“The JAA Advance Card provides the user with the ability to manage all the expenses associated with operating a fleet of vehicles,” Wright said. “And, as part of the JAA family, we are giving cardholders more options from which they can choose.”
