Typically, you can add roadside assistance to your already existing auto insurance policy for less than five dollars a month. That means that in most cases, your total costs for 24×7 roadside assistance coverage will be less than 60 dollars a year. Just one tow could cost more than your yearly costs for total coverage. So, in some ways, the risks of not purchasing coverage far outweigh the upfront costs.
There are even some ways that you can get auto repair service for free! Some newer cars come with a warranty that offers roadside assistance, so make sure to check your existing warranty for coverage before purchasing an additional policy.
Most of the major insurance companies (Geico, Progressive, State Farm, etc.) offer coverage at 4 dollars or less monthly, so if you can’t find it free, the coverage is still reasonable. Many wireless providers also provide roadside assistance coverage, AT&T and Verizon’s programs cost around three bucks. Credit card companies often comp coverage, so check with your credit card company about roadside assistance as well.
