Shopping for an emergency roadside assistance policy should be treated as seriously as buying a car. A roadside assistance plan should be as reliable as your car to take you safely to and from Point A to Point B. You want the best coverage available, at the right time.
Find the best coverage for you
Different emergency roadside assistance plans provide different types of coverage. Your specific situation will determine which coverage you are comfortable with. Roadside assistance plans generally provide services for flat tires, fuel shortages, towing, and transport. However, these services should not be taken as a given.

Ask questions about each service when you shop for a plan. What if you have a flat tire and don’t have a spare? Will the plan give you a replacement or transport you to an auto shop? How much gas will you get if you run out? Is that enough to get you to the gas station? What distance will your vehicle need to be towed? Are you able to get to your destination or return home?
Ask about the Service Availability of the Plan
Different plans provide different types of coverage. They also offer different levels of service availability. Find out the location where the plan covers you and decide if it works for you.
Service availability is not likely to make a big difference if you aren’t traveling a lot beyond where you live. If you travel a lot, you will need a plan that covers you everywhere. If you are traveling for work or pleasure, it is important to ensure that your plan covers you beyond your home state or city. You may also need to check whether additional fees will be required for these services. If you have a teenager driving, it is important to find out the boundaries.
For low annual rates, a large network across the country, and additional services to assist you when your vehicle becomes disabled, I recommend Roadside Assistance Programs.
There are many uses for the covered vehicle, and it doesn’t matter who drives it.
