BCAA’s Safe-Ride-Home Service allows BCAA members one Safe-Ride-Home call per year for the driver and his/her vehicle that counts as one of their annual service calls. There is no extra charge to members for the service as long as the distance of the requested tow is within the maximum towing distance allowed at his/her level of membership. Members can pay the per-kilometre extra charge for a longer tow. Telephone: 1-800-222-4357 (Note: BCAA membership number required)
