VIRGINA BEACH, Va. (March 26, 2018) – Consumers can now look beyond their fingertips to find a AAA Diamond Rated restaurant. AAA has made it as simple as asking Amazon Alexa or Google Home for suggestions. With access to 31,000 AAA Inspected & Approved restaurants, the voice-based technologies can help consumers pinpoint a restaurant locally or find the perfect place to dine while traveling on a vacation.
"Consumers want information instantly and easily. Voice-based technologies, like Alexa and Google Home, are driving this trend,” said Georjeane Blumling, vice president of Public Affairs for AAA Tidewater Virginia. “AAA continues to innovate and promote these exciting new approaches and, in so doing, is meeting and exceeding the needs of AAA members and other consumers alike while providing the most convenient access to Diamond Rated restaurants.”
Using the technology, consumers can interact in an instant with the trusted information from AAA’s TourBook guides to find local restaurants and even get an explanation on the AAA Diamond Rating system. To find a AAA Diamond Rated restaurant, use these commands and tips:
“Alexa, tell AAA to find me a restaurant.”
“Okay Google, tell AAA Restaurants to find me a restaurant.”
Be sure to pronounce AAA as “Triple A.”
Alexa users must enable the skill before they can access Diamond Rated restaurants.
AAA is working to apply the technology to be compatible with other voice-based devices and expand the capabilities. To learn more about AAA’s Diamond Ratings, visit AAA.com/Diamonds.
