COMPARE AUTOVANTAGE (AV) TO BETTER WORLD CLUB (BWC)

Facts:

BWC provides nationwide 24-hour emergency roadside assistance including towing, lockout and flat tire assistance, jumpstarts, gasoline delivery, and winching.

BWC is NOT a reimbursement program. You pay a one-time annual membership fee, and the costs of all services are covered up to your benefit limit.

BWC is the environmentally friendly alternative to AutoVantage and other Auto Clubs. BWC supports sound policies like public funding for mass transit and the broad enforcement of the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts. One percent of all revenues go towards environmental cleanup and advocacy. Read about our Donation Program .

BWC membership options include travel discounts, free maps and trip routing services, and insurance. We donate $1.00 for every online booking made through our web site and offer members free carbon offsets (to help fight global warming) when they make their airline reservations through Better World Club or purchase Better World Insurance. Make the switch or send this page to a friend.
