When you are buying auto insurance, your dealer might ask you if you want to add roadside assistance to your policy.
You might shrug off this offer, thinking it is only meant to add a service to your insurance bills that you won't use.
However, the whole point of insurance is to protect you in the case of events that you hope will never happen.
Having a breakdown can be costly. If your car isn't movable, then you will likely need a tow. A trade secret is that many towing companies charge by the mile. This bill can be hefty depending on how far they have to tow the car.
If you’re stranded on the side of the road, the last thing you want to worry about adding to what might already be a hefty repair bill for your car.
The good news is that roadside assistance coverage is likely less than $10 extra added to your insurance bill. That is a lot cheaper than the hundreds of dollars that might result from towing or labor costs to repair your car.
Roadside assistance coverage can help you in many different scenarios. In fact, it can cover more than just the cost of towing. Roadside assistance comes to you and can bring many services with it.
Many large insurance companies don’t just offer towing services. Some will provide jump-starts to your battery, or tire changes. Some will also deliver gas, oil and water for your engine if you run out or have a malfunction.
Additionally, some roadside assistance policies will also cover labor costs for repairs.
Insurance companies often have roadside assistance hotlines that are always open. These hotlines can direct you to services the company trusts. That way, you won’t have to worry about a service denying your insurance or charging you too much.
