“Yes, adding roadside assistance is a must.
Nearly every car insurance policy will offer a roadside assistance plan that covers towing, flat tires, batteries, and a locksmith.
However, these policies can have a wide range of prices and overall coverage, including towing distances. The best plan is to shop around on a site like Jerry so you can see prices and quotes. Plus, you just might find that switching your policy to another provider might add up to even more savings.”
