Roadside Assistance on Road Trips

It’s good to have peace of mind when you’re cruising on the open road, especially when you’re far from home. Kids forget to close car doors all the way, batteries die, and cars run out of gas in unfamiliar places. When you're on a road trip, having roadside assistance on your car insurance policy can really come in handy and help keep your vacation on track.

What is roadside assistance?

Roadside assistance is a product that is added on or included in your insurance policy to provide assistance if your vehicle has mechanical problems while on the road. With a roadside assistance plan from Direct Auto Insurance, you can get help with all kinds of road trip troubles, including:

  • Towing
  • Help with lockouts
  • Gas and fluid delivery
  • Map services
  • Jumpstarts
  • Flat tires
  • Mechanical help
  • Thefts

But do I need roadside assistance for a trip?

If you are 100% sure that nothing will ever go wrong on the road, then probably not. Then again, how many of us can predict the future? The roadside assistance plan offered at Direct Auto pays for itself after just one use and can be especially helpful when you're driving in an area that you're unfamiliar with. When you don't have friends or family nearby to call for help with a flat tire or dead battery, you can call Direct Auto when you're a member of the roadside assistance program.

How much is roadside assistance?

Roadside assistance is usually available with your auto insurance policy for a fairly low cost. You are then provided the information and can call for assistance when you need it. This can come in handy on road trips when you can’t predict what will happen, and are far from home.
