Roadside Assistance ? Triplanning

Been a member of AARP for over 10 years and member of their roadside assistance as well. I know the roadside assistance has changed companies throughout the years. However I still have the card from 2008 and cannot find out what company is running  it now. Anyone know? Also do they still help with trip planning using actual maps? I don't do digital as I prefer to concentrate on the road. I have researched within AARP and couldn't find any answer.

I had AAA roadside assistance for over three decades when I was convinced by AAPR to try out their new roadside assistance plan with Allstate. What a huge mistake. There is no way to renew or pay your Allstate annual membership fee online.  Are you kidding me?  This is 2023!  They want you to physically write down your credit card number on their piece of paper and mail it to them by snail mail. Anyone who has every read any of the AARP publications on fraud know you never write your credit card number on pieces of paper and send through the mail. Additionally, when you read the small print, by giving them your credit card number you are agreeing to have all future dues automatically charged to your card. If you want to cancel, can you call them? No!  Can you contact them through their website? No. Can you cancel your account online? No. The ONLY way you can cancel is to contact them in writing, through the mail, and they conveniently do not provide you with their contact address for this. Again, are we living in 2023 or 1963?  My membership expires next month and I am not renewing....I'm going back to AAA.  I should have never left. Shame on AARP for partnering with a company/plan that has such archaic methods that are not the least bit user friendly to their members.
