Whether you’re traveling locally or planning a long road trip, gas prices can quickly add up. The good news is your AARP membership can help you save. In addition to many other automotive discounts and perks, AARP members can access gas discounts. We’ve highlighted the must-know details of some of the best AARP automotive perks that can save you money and help you stay safer on the road.

AARP offers gas and other auto discounts for members.

 

Does AARP Offer Discounts on Gas?

AARP members can earn money back on their gas purchases with the Extra Exxon Mobil Rewards+ program. This program is available to the general public, but when you link your Exxon account with your AARP membership, you can earn extra points.

If you’re new to the Exxon Mobil Rewards+ program and are an AARP member, you’ll get a 500-point welcome bonus after your first fill-up. Then, you’ll continue to earn points on purchases like fuel, car washes, and convenience store items. On member days, you’ll earn twice the points on fuel purchases.

Every 100 points that you earn equals $1 in savings that you can redeem on purchases like fuel, car washes, and store purchases.

Other AARP Auto Discounts

In addition to saving money on gas, AARP senior discounts can help you to save on many other auto-related expenses.

AARP Auto Insurance Program from The Hartford

AARP members can save an average of $577 per year on their car insurance costs.

FYI:

FYI: Seniors often pay more for car insurance than younger drivers because of senior driving statistics and potential risks for accidents. Learn more about senior driving statistics and how to stay safe on the road.

AARP Motorcycle Insurance Program from Foremost

Foremost offers discounts on motorcycle insurance, safety apparel, and towing and roadside assistance. Most customers also receive a free DNA+ Forensic Coding system to help prevent motorcycle theft.

AARP SmartDriver Course

AARP members can take the Smart Driver course online or in a classroom at a discounted rate. The course can help you brush up on your driving skills, and it might help you to save money on your car insurance, too.

Recreational Vehicle Insurance from The Hartford

The Hartford also offers recreational vehicle insurance for RVs, motorhomes, and trailers. You can get a free insurance quote by phone.

Valvoline Instant Oil Change

Your AARP membership can help you save money on maintaining your car, too. Members can save 15 percent on Valvoline drive-thru, stay-in-your-car oil changes. The oil changes also include a free 18-point maintenance check. Additionally, the 15 percent discount applies to preventative maintenance service like air filter and wiper blade replacements. Oil changes are crucial to maximize your engine’s lifespan. Even if you drive infrequently and don’t reach the recommended oil change mileage interval, it’s still recommended to change your oil every six months.1

AARP also offers some valuable resources to help you with everything from buying a new car to driving safely:

  • AARP Auto is a valuable resource complete with driving tips, vehicle maintenance information, and recall and safety ratings tools.
  • The AARP Auto Buying Program powered by TrueCar can help you find the vehicle with the features you want, as well as with upfront pricing information.
  • The AARP SafeTrip App monitors your driving habits and gives you tips on how you can drive more safely.
  • CarFit events help you learn how to adjust the fit in your vehicle to maximize your safety and comfort.
  • We Need to Talk is a free online seminar that includes advice to help you help a loved one through the process of deciding when it’s right to stop driving as they age.
Pro Tip:

Pro Tip:  If it’s time for a loved one to hang up their keys, there are many other transportation options available. Learn about transportation for seniors to determine which might be best.
