If you’ve ever had a roadside assistance program, but don’t any longer, you probably miss it. Even if you never used it, there’s a certain peace of mind that comes from knowing that, if anything happens to you on the road, you just need to call and help will be on its way.
But, if you no longer have a roadside assistance program, there’s probably one main reason why. If you never used your program when you had it, you may be reluctant to spend the money to continue coverage. Programs can cost $100 or more per year, even if you never use them. Yes, there are lower-cost programs. But they are usually limited in the number of calls you can make, the services you get, and/or the distance you can be towed.
Standard Roadside Assistance Services
So where does the peace of mind come from in having roadside service protection? Generally speaking, the services you get from a program are those for which you might not consider calling a tow truck. Towing generally means moving your vehicle because you can’t drive it, like when you are involved in collisions or suffer a breakdown.
Emergency roadside services are those you need when, even though your car is drivable, you can’t drive it for one or more of the following reasons.
- Out of fuel
- Locked out of the vehicle
- Flat tire
- Need a boost to start the vehicle
- Stuck in mud or snow
