On the road, anything can happen. From flat tires to breakdowns, it’s best to be prepared for it all. At Dowd Insurance Agency, many of our carriers offer roadside assistance as an optional coverage you can purchase with your policy.
What Is Roadside Assistance?
Roadside assistance is coverage you can add to your car insurance policy to help when you find yourself stranded due to unexpected car trouble – like a dead car battery. This can happen when you’re at work, out running errands, or even when you’re at home.
What Does Roadside Assistance Cover?
Over the course of your lifetime, chances are good that someday your car will get a flat tire, run out of gas or have a mechanical problem. And there you’ll be — stuck on the side of the road. But with Roadside Assistance Coverage, you can have peace of mind knowing that help is just a phone call away.
Typical roadside assistance services include:
- Flat tire
- Battery service
- Fuel and fluids
- And more
Should You Add Roadside Assistance To Your Policy?
There are factors to consider when deciding if you want to add roadside assistance to your policy, including:
- Vehicle age: If you have an older car, you may worry it’s going to break down. However, even newer cars can experience flat tires and other issues that may require roadside assistance.
- Driving distance: Do you frequently use your car for travel? Do you commute to work? Even if you aren’t driving far, you could still get a dead battery or flat tire in your driveway.
- Convenience: Do you belong to a motor club that provides roadside assistance? Many insurance companies also offer this service. It might be easier to add roadside assistance coverage from your auto insurance company instead.
- Cost: Since this coverage is optional, there is a charge to add it to your existing policy. After you get a quote, you’ll need to decide if it fits into your budget. Also consider the amount you’d need to pay out of pocket if you didn’t have the coverage.
