Nobody wants to have a vehicle breakdown. Dead batteries, flat tires, overheated engines — any breakdown could leave a driver with a lot of lost time and high repair bills. The good news is, if the driver's auto insurance offers roadside assistance coverage, then they might have help at their disposal.
Client-focused agents who want their policy offerings to include such convenient perks can rely on A-Z Insurance Agency to help them make smart investments in coverage. Your portfolio will always include a diverse selection of auto policies that will each offer convenient features.
What Is Roadside Assistance Coverage?
Most Texas drivers have to carry auto liability insurance. But beyond that, they usually have the choice to add other coverage to their policy that, while optional, might prove extremely beneficial. One of these perks might be a roadside assistance supplement. Roadside assistance coverage can help a policyholder get expert help with pesky inconveniences that might impact their car any time.
Why Roadside Assistance?
No driver wants to walk out of the house to find their car battery is dead. They don't want to have a flat tire on the side of the interstate during a family vacation. They might not know where to turn in sticky situations, and they certainly don't want to think about repair bills. Luckily, if their policy contains a roadside assistance provision, they can contact their insurer as soon as a problem occurs.
Roadside assistance coverage varies among different insurers, but policies can offer such perks as:
- Jump-starts and battery replacements
- Lockout services
- Tire changes
- Gas delivery
- Towing services
Who Do Policyholders Call For Roadside Assistance?
In most cases, all a driver has to do to receive roadside assistance is call their auto insurance company. The insurer will dispatch a reputable, trusted auto service provider to the scene, equipped with the tank of gas or jumper cables you might need. If the provider realizes the problem is too big for them, they can help you arrange a tow service to get the car to a repair center. You can then follow up with your insurer for additional help.
Is Roadside Assistance Worth It?
In many cases, the policy will pay the full cost of the driver's requested services. In other cases, drivers might have to pay for parts of the service, but because they received service through their insurer, they might qualify for a reduced service fee.
Therefore, drivers might get a better cost benefit through their insurer than they would simply paying for a service out-of-pocket. The cost of adding this coverage to their auto policy is usually relatively small, so drivers can hit the road knowing they'll save money in case of breakdowns.
