Save Time, Money And A Headache With Roadside Coverage


Adding roadside assistance coverage to your auto insurance policy can give you peace of mind and save you money over time. Offered as an add-on, roadside assistance offers a wide variety of emergency services for only a small increase in premiums per year. 

If you drive an older car, have teen drivers or have a long daily commute then roadside assistance can certainly pay for itself quickly. Roadside assistance connects a network of service providers with one convenient number you can call when you need help. They will dispatch the closest service provider to your location based on your needs. When you’re stuck on the side of the road, the last thing you want to do is spend an hour looking up help on your cell phone. 

The main goal of roadside assistance is to perform minor mechanical repairs and services to help get you back on the road if you breakdown. Here are the main services you can expect from roadside assistance programs:

Battery Service

Many stalled car incidents are the result of a failed battery. You can get a jump start or battery charge from roadside assistance. 

Flat Tire Assistance

Not everyone can change a flat tire or sometimes your spare isn’t operational when you need it, so flat tire assistance can come in handy especially if you are traveling alone. 

Fuel Delivery 

It happens to the best of us, if you have a lot on your mind you might forget to keep an eye on your fuel level. Go too far ignoring the warning signal and your travels might come to an abrupt end. Stuck in the middle of nowhere with no gas in the tank can be a bummer. You’d have to get your walking shoes on if you didn’t have roadside assistance to back you up. 

Lockout Service

Locking the keys in the car is a common occurrence so if this has happened to you, you are not alone. Calling a locksmith can be quite expensive depending on your location, the time of day or day of the week. You’ll be happy you have roadside assistance, especially if you get locked out more than once in a year. 


Extrication helps get your car unstuck if you  run off the road or get in an accident. Stuck in a ditch? Roadside assistance will be there to help you. 

Limited Towing 

If roadside services can’t get your car operational again then limited towing services are available. Towing insurance, in general, is a separate add-on but if it’s related to one of the issues above then the towing might be covered by roadside assistance.
