How much does it cost to jump start your car if you don't have AAA?

I don't have AAA, but I want to know what would happen if my battery dies. How much would it cost to have a company jump start your battery?

“If you call a local towing company or roadside assistance company, they might charge you anywhere from $50 to $100 for a jump start.
At that price, you could almost buy a new battery. But you also have other options.
If you have jumper cables, call a taxi. Often you can have them run the meter while they jump start your car. You could also call a friend or family member with a car to help.
However, the best choice is probably to purchase a AAA membership or add towing and labor coverage to your auto insurance policy.
You could also use an app like Jerry for a roadside assistance membership. Jerry works with Urgently to provide roadside assistance, which includes jump starts. You can get a full year of coverage for $50.
Any type of roadside assistance coverage would get you out of a sticky situation and provide you with peace of mind.”
