Alabama Roadside Assistance
Roadside assistance is not typically the easiest thing to purchase. There are many unknowns and many companies who surprisingly enough do not sell roadside assistance as they claim. Many companies have tried to mitigate their risk by selling hotel discounts and heavily restricted roadside assistance. Below are a few things that can help you get great roadside assistance in Alabama.
- Make sure that the provider of the roadside policy does not have a maximum limit on an occurrence. Many companies offer roadside assistance for $50 to $100 per month. They mitigate their risk by maxing out what they pay per tow. If your policy is $50 then your maximum tow allowance would be $50. This does not make sense when you are buying a policy because you are taking all the risk. It would be better for you to take the risk and just call 411 when your car is disabled and pay for towing yourself if you need it.
- Find out the limit on number of instances per year. Many people will offer great services but once you use one, you are done for the year and cannot use them anymore.
- Don’t be fooled by the hotel and food discounts. Those are just marketing gimmicks. There are companies that have become so popular for their discounts that they sell a completely watered down roadside assistance plan only to push discounts that don’t cost them anything. When you are stranded and you realize that your coverage is minimal then it can be very disappointing.
Our services allow up to 6 service calls per year and carry no out of pocket expenses. It is a true roadside assistance program for people who need and want peace of mind while driving and traveling.
