What will roadside assistance coverage do for me?

Roadside assistance, in particular, is a valuable auto insurance option, yet many drivers turn down coverage to save a few dollars a year. As a result, uncovered drivers lose out on time and money-saving services.

Below are a few services roadside assistance coverage offers:

  • Tow service
  • Fix or replace a flat tire
  • Provide oil or gas
  • Unlock or Lockout service
  • Jumpstart service

In truth, many first-time drivers decline roadside assistance simply because they haven’t experienced a need. Seasoned drivers knowingly take the risk and skip coverage and may potentially pay in a big way down the line.

Unfortunately, many drivers don’t realize roadside assistance insurance is essential until it’s too late – then it’s time to pay up in full.
