Are you going where your plan can't follow?
When a hipster shaves his beard you're going to see a totally different person. Getting roadside assistance through your insurance is a lot like that.
While it can be quite convenient to purchase emergency roadside assistance through your insurance company, sometimes, you have to shave the man's face (read the fine print) and see what you're actually dealing with...
Things to look out for when considering roadside assistance through your insurance:
Higher Premiums in lieu of using the service (yes, many insurance companies will raise your premium, they treat roadside assistance much like that of an accident.)
Low Miles Per Tow (Be careful you are getting the emergency service that will serve you best in your time of need. Most insurance companies have a very small tow range and, thus, you will have to pay out of pocket to truly get you to where you need to go.)
Covers Only The Insured Vehicle (If you are only driving the one car that may be fine for you, but companies that are roadside focused -- like BWC -- cover YOU and not the vehicle, so we will come to your rescue no matter whose car you are in, even in rentals.)
It's important to have the coverage you need when that times comes. So be certain to read the fine print, take note of the limitations presented by your insurance policy and make an informed decision!
