There’s nothing like hitting the road for your summer vacation with peace of mind. And what better way to be ready for any bump in the road than by subscribing to a roadside assistance program? Here are some of the benefits of such programs.
24/7 roadside assistance
Flat tire change
Trip planning assistance
In the event you run into a problem during your travels, roadside assistance programs can provide you with assistance at all times—24 hours a day, seven days a week.
There’s nothing more frustrating than locking yourself out of your vehicle. Luckily, members of roadside assistance programs get access to the services of a locksmith at no extra cost.
So you overestimated how much was left in the tank and you’ve run out of gas—no problem! Service providers will supply you with enough fuel to get you to the next service station. (Depending on your plan, you may have to cover the cost of the fuel yourself, though.)
Checking the condition of your tires before embarking on a long road trip is always recommended. However, if you do get a flat tire, roadside assistance programs offer a flat-tire change service. Your spare tire will be installed without you even needing to get your hands dirty! If your spare tire is not road-worthy or if you have two flat tires, you can also arrange to have your car towed.
If they need a tow, members of roadside assistance programs will be happy to know that, depending on their coverage, their vehicles can be towed to the destination of their choice or to the nearest repair centre at no charge.
Stuck in a ditch, mud, sand or snow? Members of roadside assistance programs have no need to worry for their safety thanks to an extrication/winching service, provided they are stuck on a regularly travelled road.
Car doesn’t start? Battery dead? Just call your roadside assistance program and a service provider will come boost your battery as soon as possible.
Did you know that a roadside assistance program can simplify your life when planning a trip? Most programs offer trip planning guides and maps and special hotel rates—it’s worth looking into!
