“Urgently generally gets favorable reviews from customers on most customer review websites (about 3.5 to 4 stars out of 5). It’s not as reputable as companies like AAA, but it still might be a good option for you based on the coverage.
However, it’s not like your normal roadside assistance service. It’s like Uber for roadside assistance. So when you need a technician or tow, you’ll go into the app, select the service you need, and you’ll get a quote (much like Uber or Lyft).
Prices start at $99 for a 10-mile tow or $75 for a tire change, battery jump, etc.
If you’ve had roadside assistance for years, never used it, but paid for it monthly, Urgently might be an option to get you out of a jam. Otherwise, going with a membership to AAA or your car insurance company is far cheaper.”

What does auto replacement protection cover?
I'm buying a new car and looking at auto insurance quotes. I've seen this coverage with various carriers and I'm wondering what it does. Would this cover your loan so you can start fresh if your car is deemed a total loss? Or does it replace your vehicle?

I had a car accident last week and the adjuster told me my car was totaled. I haven't gotten the claim check yet, but I have an insurance payment due next week. Can I just cancel the policy?
