Should I get AAA or just go with my insurance company's roadside assistance?

"I was looking at roadside assistance through my car insurance. It appears to offer the same services as AAA, but at a fraction of the cost.

Should I go with my insurance company or get AAA?"

Towing and labor coverage can vary widely by your car insurance. In addition, some car insurance companies may have a small range of geographic coverage compared to others, which can cause longer wait times.
The advantage of AAA is that they have a wide network of contractors and providers, which can cut down your response time drastically. During daytime hours, AAA states that the average response time is only 21 minutes, which is probably better than with a car insurance company.
As far as cost, you’ll have to weigh the pros and cons yourself. Just remember that a cheaper price isn’t always the best route to take.”
