Memorial day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer. This year, prompted by the lowest gas prices in more than a decade, tens of millions of people will embark on the traditional American road trip and head for theme parks, the beach, and other destinations across the country. According to the U.S Travel Association, travelers will spend more than $12 billion over Memorial Day weekend alone with the majority being spent by those driving. Budgeting for roadside assistance coverage is crucial to ensuring your summer road trip results in memories that last a lifetime for all the right reasons.
The last thing you want to deal with on vacation is time wasted dealing with “car problems.” Mechanical breakdowns, lock outs, lost keys, and accidents result in wasted time and wasted money. Time you could have spent with your family is wasted calling to locate service providers and waiting for assistance to arrive. Additionally, calling a local tow company or automotive service center can be expensive. According to carhelper.com the cost for tow can easily top $100; and this doesn’t cover any of the costs for the actual repair.
Budgeting for a roadside assistance plan can eliminate unnecessary expenses. Emergency roadside assistance plans can eliminate costly tows and cover expenses for lost keys or lockouts, running out of gas, and dead batteries. Purchasing a plan through Best Roadside Service includes benefits such as fluid top offs, fuel delivery, flat tire service, and lost key and lockout service. In addition, national chains including Meineke, Aamco, and Jiffy Lube offer discounts to Best Roadside Service customers for car repairs and maintenance.
Roadside assistance plans also eliminate wasted time. With a quick call to an emergency hotline all your service provider needs can be located in one place, and with the right plan fast response times will eliminate wait time. One call to Best Roadside Service will have help on the way quickly with an average response time of just 34 minutes, getting you back to your life as quickly as possible and allowing you more time to spend with family and friends.
The summer road trip can be one of the best vacations you will ever take. With gas prices lower than they have been in years the summer road trip has also become one of the most affordable options for families. Budgeting for roadside assistance coverage gives you peace of mind, and can save you time and money in the event of an emergency; getting you back on the road and and back to making memories with your family.
