I'm currently doing the same research, and have only found my AAA discount to be the cheapest (though not cheap) so far. I'll let you know if I find anything else.

That was really thoughtful of you to be concerned about the girl. I can't believe the father reacted like that, but good on the snow patrol for handling it like they did. Sucks for the 9 year-old who...
