Good Sam is a well-known provider of Roadside Assistance plans, particularly among RV enthusiasts.

AAA is probably the most widely-recognized name in Roadside Assistance providers. Their nationwide network of contractors and many brick-and-mortar locations give members reassurance while on the road and access to a significant number of perks. The only significant drawbacks are the short five miles covered in towing for members at the lowest tier of service and the price variations depending on the state of residence.

Billed as "America's only eco-friendly auto club", Better World Club will appeal to customers looking for roadside assistance with a tree-hugging twist: 1% of revenue is donated to efforts in environmental advocacy and cleanup, and discounts are given to members with hybrid vehicles. Understandably, this company may not be attractive for those who prefer their coverage without a "green" focus at the heart of its membership plans.

For customers looking for basic roadside assistance coverage without the frills, Auto Road Service is a good place to start.

Best Roadside Service offers one of the best towing allowances on the market at 75 miles, and service available in three languages meets a wide variety of customer needs. On the other hand, their pricing differences between covering a vehicle vs. covering a driver could quickly add up for a large family, and RV owners will be out of luck with no available coverage.

Roadside Assistance

Whether on a cross-country road trip or a quick errand across town, it's never a good time for a vehicle to break down. With a Roadside Assistance plan, drivers have protection against the inconvenience and danger of being stranded by the side of the road and can trust that help will be on the way.

While motor clubs used to be the only way to access these protection plans, today there is a wide range of Roadside Assistance plans from which to choose, from credit card providers to insurance companies. Plans can include flat-tire changing, fuel or coolant delivery, help with stuck vehicles, and some even offer financial help with legal defense in the event of a speeding ticket!

Some plans also tie the coverage to specific vehicles, while others allow the covered member (and often the other drivers in the household) to receive roadside service regardless of the vehicle. The latter can be particularly useful if a covered member is riding in a car belonging to another driver when a breakdown occurs, as the coverage will be extended to servicing that vehicle.

If you're shopping for a reputable provider of Roadside Assistance, you should consider the following.

  • Coverage Details. While all plans will cover the cost of towing, either by covering it outright or by reimbursing you for payments made to the towing company, there are significant differences in coverage depending on the provider you choose and the comprehensiveness of the plan. Carefully review the coverage details to make sure that your most likely needs are covered.
  • Length of Coverage. What best fits your lifestyle and plans for car ownership? A manufacturer plan might be enough to protect you, but if you want to cover more than one vehicle without worrying about warranty expiration, a traditional roadside assistance plan would be more appropriate.
  • Reliability of the Provider. How long have they been in business? How satisfied are their customers? How long does it take, on average, to get a tow truck or locksmith dispatched to the customer? Is there a satisfaction guarantee if the promised services don't meet expectations? has reviewed and ranked the best Roadside Assistance providers available today. We hope this information helps you find the right roadside assistance plan for you and your family!
