Can you use someone else's roadside assistance for towing?
Are we allowed to use someone else's roadside assistance? My boyfriend's mom has roadside assistance. My car stalled while I was with my boyfriend. He said that we should just use his mom's roadside assistance instead of paying out of pocket.
Most of the time the roadside assistance policy holder must be present. If your boyfriend is listed on the policy for roadside assistance, then you should be able to use the towing service.
When the roadside assistance does show up, they may ask for identification. If you’re not the person on the card, they likely will refuse the service. Since you aren’t paying the membership fee, they can refuse service.
Every membership is different. If you’re curious, you can ask your boyfriend’s mom what her membership covers. You could also see if she can add you or your boyfriend to the policy for the future.
You can also get your own roadside assistance membership through the Jerry app. We not only generate competitive quotes from 50+ top providers in less than a minute but also offer a roadside assistance membership for as low as $4.16 a month. Call our friendly agents to see if you qualify for a special discount rate of $50 for your first year!
