“What your car insurance will cover for the locksmith depends on what coverage you have on your policy.
Most towing and labor coverage on an insurance policy covers locksmith or lockout services. Roadside assistance with your insurance company may also cover locksmith costs.
However, they may require you to use their service directly or call a locksmith in their network to be covered.
To see if you can be reimbursed, you’ll need to call your insurance company directly or look into your policy documents. Depending on the coverage, you may be reimbursed for a portion or the full amount. “
