Destination of Towed Vehicles Find out the destination of a towed car under the plan you may be eyeing. It will generally go to the nearest repair shop or one that you yourself choose within particular limits – usually around 5 miles with a basic plan or up to a maximum of 100 miles with a premium plan. If you must have the car towed beyond the limits, you’ll have to pay for the additional mileage. Service Call Limits You are generally allotted four service calls over a membership period of 12 months. You may not be covered or you may have to pay out-of-pocket beyond that. The rules can vary widely so it’s a must that you are fully informed regarding each plan you’re considering. Availability In most cases, plans contract with towtruck operators and local repair shops. S. Know if the plan you’re interested in has providers within in your area or where you may travel. Vehicle Eligibility Plans often cover passenger vehicles, although some will offer enhanced or separate coverage for RVs, trailers, motorcycles and sometimes bicycles. Additional Benefits Ask what other benefits are provided by the plan, such as repair warranties, travel-planning tools, reward for stolen vehicle recovery, etc. Background As in any purchase you make, research whether the group that’s offering you a roadside-assistance plan has complaints files against them at the Better Business Bureau. Know what others are saying about the coverage on complaint boards. Read online reviews too, but be sure not to veer off from independent consumer websites to ensure the authenticity of the testimonies. Lastly, ask around – perhaps a friend, relative or coworker can recommend the provider they’re using.
