Full lineup of membership benefits other than road service

People who want to join JAF in the event of any car problems may worry that the annual membership fee is a waste if they don’t have any opportunities to use road service, but we offer many benefits and services to JAF members that can be used every day.

Becoming a member gives you access to membership benefit services such as discounts and special offers at partner facilities in about 47,000 locations across the country. We also send out a magazine packed with information on car and traffic safety and road trips, as well as a newsletter with information on time-limited benefits and coupons. JAF offers a wide range of membership benefits* other than road service that can be used every day, including events and gifts just for members, a consultation service for road trips, and lectures on traffic safety.

Customer reviews

Road Service

Road Service

The language they used, their attitude towards the customer, explanations of how to deal with the breakdown and the follow-up that needs to be done – all of these were much better than I had expected. Even in the rain, they did a perfect job. They reassured me that as long as I remain a JAF member, I can feel secure, even if I run into trouble in the future.

Male, Kanagawa Prefecture

Road Service

I let my large motorcycle fall over in my garage so I called for help. JAF immediately recognized that it was a brand-new motorcycle that I had just bought and quickly made appropriate judgments on where to touch and in which direction to move the bike after picking it up safely and undamaged. I have only gratitude for their guidance after understanding what I was going through, naturally helping me not to panic or fret.

Male, Chiba Prefecture

Road Service

Despite the fact that they were busier than usual because of the heavy rain, they responded and helped me much faster than I had expected. I have been a member of JAF for more than 20 years, but this was the first time I used the service. I am honestly glad that I did not cancel my membership.

In addition to the peace of mind I get by being a JAF member, I am satisfied with the benefits I get from participating in JAF's hands-on events as well as the preferential discounts (on hot springs, meals, coffee, soft cream, and more).

Female, Kumamoto Prefecture

Membership Benefits

Even a 10% discount using the benefit service makes me feel like I'm getting a good deal. I don't mind paying the annual membership fee because there are so many kinds of benefit facilities.

Female, Aichi Prefecture

Membership Benefits

I was able to take advantage of the benefits and really save on my purchases! Before, I used to have to search my wallet or bag for my membership card and couldn't use it if I had left it in my car, but now I can just show my card on my phone, which is very convenient.
