One of the best things about purchasing emergency roadside assistance from a national automobile club is that you get nationwide coverage. This might not mean much to folks who don’t travel very far from their homes, but many drivers appreciate the security of having access to roadside assistance no matter where they are in the country.
If any of the following scenarios apply to you, you might benefit from the services of a national automobile club:
• You or someone in your family travels extensively for business.
• You or someone in your family works or attends school in a state other than your home state.
• You vacation away from home at least once a year.
Having the security of roadside assistance regardless of where you are in America is beneficial for every traveler. If the company you’re interested in doesn’t offer nationwide assistance and you travel beyond your hometown, look for other companies.
Convenient Membership Types
Some national automobile clubs offer one roadside assistance plan for all members. This method works for many drivers because these standard, one-size-fits-all plans generally include the most common types of roadside assistance (such as tire services, key retrieval, fuel delivery, and towing). These kinds of plans can also help you save money because you’re not paying for coverage you might not want or need.
However, if a company only offers one membership type and that particular plan doesn’t suit your needs, look for a company that offers several different membership options. Your particular needs might call for a more “mid-level” or “premium” roadside assistance plan. Yet, you must always be careful not to get caught up in all the extras these kinds of plans offer and let their glamour trick you into paying for more than what you actually need.
Flexible Coverage Options
As stated above, you can choose from companies that offer one basic roadside assistance plan for all members, or you can select a company that provides a variety of plans for its members. Regardless of what kinds of plans the companies offer, some companies include add-on coverage options to further fit your service needs and prevent you from spending a lot of time searching for the one perfect company with the one perfect membership type.
Before you begin adding on extra coverage options, though, make sure what you’re adding is what you’ll actually use. For example, some national automobile clubs have add-on coverage options that pay a portion of emergency room visits; however, most health insurance policies already cover this. If yours does, adding this coverage to your roadside assistance plan is unnecessary.
