Does getting a tow impact your car insurance premium?

I've had two tows in the last six months. Will this affect the price of my car insurance premium?

“Having two tows in the past six months is highly unlikely to impact your car insurance.
But if you push that into four tows or more a year, this may impact how much you pay for car insurance.
If frequent towing is a concern, you could look into third-party roadside assistance memberships, like AAA.
Check with your current provider to find out more.”
